Construction of the Kaposvar 100MW Photovoltaic (PV) Power Station, the largest of its kind in Hungary, started on June 17.
Invested by China National Machinery Import & Export Corporation (CMC), a subsidiary of China General Technology (Group) Holding Co., Ltd (Genertec), the project is a new achievement of China's Belt and Road Initiative and Hungary's "Opening up to the East" strategy.
The Kaposvar 100 MW PV Power Station project is a result of China-Hungary cooperation and is a main program of the two countries' goal of building a clean and beautiful world through cooperation in ecological protection and green development.
The main equipment for the construction will be purchased from internationally leading manufacturers and many high-quality construction and engineering units in Hungary and other Europeans countries will participate in the project.
Meanwhile, local resources will be fully used during the construction.
Optimizing energy structure, strengthening construction and operation of clean energy projects become more and more important in Central and Eastern Europe with implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change.
Being one of the largest PV power stations in Central and Eastern Europe, the Kaposvar project is expected to produce 130 million kWh of electricity when it is completed, which will save about 45,000 tons of coal and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 120,000 tons.
The project will increase use of clean energy in Hungary and Central and Eastern Europe.
