The Scaldia solar park officially opened in North Sea Port, the logistical heart of Europe. The firm ib vogt installed more than 140,000 solar panels, making this the largest solar park in the Netherlands.

The official opening took place with the symbolic starting of the generator, getting the largest solar park in the Netherlands up and running.

The Scaldia solar park is located in the municipalities of Borsele and Vlissingen. For Zeeland, the facility is important to achieving its climate objectives: over 30 years, the solar park will avoid 738,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

As the biggest land owner, North Sea Port supported the development of the renewable energy project, since it fits with the sustainability policies of the port.

ib vogt GmbH specialises in the development and delivery of photovoltaic installations around the world.

The solar park was built beside a number of wind turbines and beneath a high-voltage line in a cable and pipeline corridor around Sloehaven dock. Scaldia solar park has a capacity of 54.5 MWp, with over 140,000 panels covering an area of 38 hectares.
