The solar farms will certainly be established on behalf of Vienna-based renewable energy producer ImWind Erneuerbare Energie GmbH in Nickelsdorf in northeastern Burgenland close to the Hungarian border and in Tauernwind, Styria, central Austria.

Building and construction deal with the projects is readied to start in the springtime of this year. As soon as finished by the end of 2023, the PV systems are expected to supply around 13,000 local households with eco-friendly power as well as save around 22,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions.

The power created by the 2 nuclear power plant will be fed into the public network using the grid infrastructure of existing wind farms which will decrease the costs of grid growth.

The two projects mark Goldbeck Solar's entry into the Austrian PV market.

ImWind has actually been establishing, developing as well as operating wind farms and also solar parks in Austria as well as abroad for over 25 years. In overall, 140 wind and solar plants now create around 1 TWh of clean electrical power each year as well as supply over 300,000 households in Austria.

In the next two years, the company prepares to invest greater than EUR 100 million (USD 108.14 m) in the building and construction of new wind as well as solar farms to expand renewable energy as well as reinforce the safety of supply in Austria.
