Solar farms with total panel output of 75 megawatts will be built at the Hitura mine in Nivala and the Callio mine in Pyhäjärvi in vacant mining infrastructure. The purpose of the project is to create preconditions for harnessing vacant mining infrastructure in the Nordic countries for the production of renewable solar energy. The project includes the construction of two solar farms in an area covering a total of 160 hectares. In addition to this, electricity storage facilities with a capacity of 7.5 MW will be built in connection with the solar farms. The total budget of the project is approximately EUR 61 million.
