March 14 (Renewables Now) - German engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm Pfalzsolar GmbH said Wednesday that it is getting ready to start construction of a 34-MWp solar farm in the Dutch province of Flevoland.

Pfalzsolar will build this solar park after winning a tender launched by local non-commercial waste management company HVC and project developer Sunwatt. Upon completion, the plant will be operated by Zuyderzon Almere, a project company established by HVC and Sunwatt.

The German EPC contractor said it will begin construction work on March 21 and that the process will last four months. The so-called Almere project will be realised in an industrial area and once the plant is finalised it will be generating some 30 million kWh of electricity per year. Zuyderzon Almere will receive a feed-in tariff (FiT) under the Dutch SDE+ subsidy programme for each kilowatt hour fed into the grid.

Pfalzsolar has built three solar parks on disused landfills, totalling 9 MWp, for HVC over the past few months, it said.
