Eternia Solar to install 1.4 MWp solar power plants for a Lithuanian gas transmission system operator Amber Grid

Last week, Eternia Solar signed a contract with a Lithuanian gas transmission system operator Amber Grid for the construction of PV systems. Based on the agreement, Eternia Solar will install solar power plants of a 1.4 MW total capacity on Amber Grid-operated facilities by 2021.

Both rooftop and ground-mounted PV systems to be built on Amber Grid property will boast cutting-edge technologic solutions that will position them among the most advanced in Lithuania. Two PV systems of 500 kW and one of 450 kW will be constructed in the following Amber Grid territories: Gudelių street (Vilnius), Jauniūniai natural gas compression station (Širvintos district) and Piniava (Panevežys district). The solar power plants will be equipped with bifacial solar modules that are of significantly higher performance than the traditional one-sided modules. Some of the solar power plants will also have a solar tracking system implemented, allowing them to generate electricity more efficiently.

Amber Grid plans to cut their electricity spending in half by installing the solar systems. The solar power plants are expected to generate up to 1.3 GWh of electricity yearly – almost 40 per cent of the total annual Amber Grid energy consumption. The company’s solar systems will also reduce the annual CO2 emission by 5,460 tons.

“We are proud to work with such ambitious business clients as Amber Grid. By choosing some of the most advanced and effective solar technologies, Amber Grid will contribute to the cleaner environment by cutting their financial costs at the same time. The savings will allow them to invest in infrastructure improvement and business development. Although we have already installed 70 per cent of the commercial solar power plants of the country, including the largest projects mounted on the roofs and on the ground, this project is one of the most complex and modern”, said Dr Andrius Džiaugys, COO at Eternia Solar.

Eternia Solar team is currently carrying out preparational tasks of the Amber Grid project.
