Dutch firm invests in UK solar farm plan

Eneco, the Dutch sustainable energy company, has invested in a solar farm near South Marston, the Swindon Advertiser has reported.

The Sevor Farm project was given planning permission last June and work on the site began last month.

Eneco will work alongside the solar farm’s developer AEE Renewables to complete the construction phase of the project, which will be operational this year.

Once complete, the project’s output will be used to contribute to the energy needs of the nearby Honda Manufacturing Plant.

The solar farm will provide 64 per cent of Honda’s annual energy requirement.

The step into solar energy investment mirrors the strategy taken by Eneco in the Dutch and Belgian markets to diversify and widen its renewable asset base.

Sevor Farm Solar joins the company’s 36mw solar project portfolio that spans The Netherlands, France and Belgium.
