January 20 (Renewables Now) - Swedish energy group Vattenfall has won a contract to build a 4.4-MW solar park at home -- a power plant near Stockholm that will be one of the largest photovoltaic (PV) park in Sweden.

The order came from domestic property group Vasakronan, Vattenfall said on Friday. The deal will see the state-owned company install around 11,000 PV panels at a site in Uppsala city. The tasks it will perform include the design, construction and operation of the solar farm, as well as its commissioning before the summer.

In the Netherlands, meanwhile, Vattenfall has put on stream what is Amsterdam’s largest rooftop PV array. The installation consists of 17,000 panels, mounted atop the roofs of two industrial buildings owned by property group Merin, which already has solar roofs at nine of its Dutch locations. The new power plant is expected to produce 4,350 MWh of electricity annually.
