HIRVENSALMI SOLAR PARK

In Hirvensalmi solar park project, a solar park consisting of 9,000 bi-facial solar panels, approximately 5 MWp in capacity, was implemented on the north side of the municipality's center. The project area was approximately 8.6 hectares in size. The solar park can be utilized as part of Hirvensalmi's climate program. Project company Järvi-Suomen Aurinko Oy has agreed a 20-year land lease agreement for the project area with Hirvensalmi municipality.

Fences and service roads were built around the park. The park does not affect the nearby outdoor trails.

The solar park's investor is Järvi-Suomen Aurinko Oy, which is a project company founded by Suur-Savon Sähkö Oy. Solarigo Systmes Oy acts as an EPC constructor of the park, and the produced solar electricity is sold by Lumme Energia.

Development

The north side of the town's center was specified as the project area. In a soil survey, the area was found to be load-bearing and thus well suited for a solar park. An environmental survey was conducted and its results have been taken into account in the implementation. Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment conducted a needs assessment for an environmental impact assessment, which was concluded not necessary for the project.

Construction

The town zoning change, which was a prerequisite for the project's implementation, became legally binding on November 10, 2023. Solarigo Systems Oy made an investment decision on the project and started construction of the solar park in December 2023. A fence and roads were built around the solar park. The surrounding fence is landscaped, so the effect on the overall appearance is minimal. The park does not affect the nearby outdoor trails.
