Design Solar Park Midden-Groningen is finished

20-03-2018

The design for the south side of the Solar Park Midden-Groningen is finished. With input from the residents and nature experts, we developed a design for a good landscaping of the park last month. The final design thus responds to the flora and fauna that is specific to the region and the wishes of the local residents.

Solar park Midden-Groningen

Since the end of 2016, Chint Solar / Astronergy has been involved in the development of this solar park on the edge of Hoogezand-Sappemeer. Landscape design with attention to local biodiversity is of paramount importance to the development. The Midden-Groningen sun park is fitted with input from the local population and fits in well with the existing landscape structures in terms of species use and design. The solar park does not cause any noise or odor nuisance and is designed in such a way that there is no question of light reflection.

The landscape design (including the layout and management plan) is added to the documents that are part of the license of the municipality of Midden-Groningen. The Council of State had a hearing on April 6th 2018. The permit is part of the procedure. The environmental permit for the solar park Midden-Groningen was approved by the Council of State on 14 November. With this ruling from the Administrative Jurisdiction Division, the environmental permit has become irrevocable and the construction has started on 21st of January 2019. In October the park is planned to be operational.
