The producer of cellulosic fibers, Lenzing AG, Lenzing/Austria, plans Upper Austria’s largest ground-mounted photovoltaic plant on an area of around 55,000 m².
The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled to take place in summer 2021. After the expected commissioning in the 2nd half of 2021, with approx. 16,000 modules, the plant will generate nearly 5,500 Mwh/year. This corresponds to the average annual electricity demand of more than 1,700 households and is unique in Upper Austria on this scale.
The photovoltaic plant is an important symbolic milestone for Lenzing on its way to becoming a CO2-neutral manufacturing site. This project is part of Lenzing’s global energy concept, which aims to provide electricity from 100% renewable sources in order to reduce CO2 intensity by 50% by 2030 and to be globally climate neutral in 2050.
