SIMO SOLAR PARK

The Simo 70 MWp solar park is a project of Exilion Tuuli Ky, where Solarigo Systems Oy works as the projects EPC constructor.

Simo's solar park is Lapland's first industrial solar park and it will be one of the largest in Finland with its 70 megawatt output capacity. The solar plant's annual production is approximately 65,000 MWh, which corresponds to the electricity consumption of approximately 26,000 apartment buildings. The park will be connected to already existing Exilion wind turbines, forming a hybrid power plant that improves energy self-sufficiency and supports carbon neutrality goals. The solar park project area is about 70 hectares.

Solarigo Systems Oy is responsible for the planning and implementation of the project. Solarigo will also manage the maintenance of the solar park after completion. The solar park will contain approximately 120,000 solar panels and the total value of the project is approximately 40 million euros.

The project has received investment support of 8.9 million euros from the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment as part of the NextGeneration EU green transition funding.

The effects on nature have been taken into account by delimiting, for example, valuable wilderness area outside the project. The park is estimated to be completed towards the end of 2025. For the municipality of Simo, the park brings significant real estate tax income, estimated at around 250,000 euros per year.
