China’s state-owned engineering company PowerChina plans to build 660 MW of solar capacity on agricultural land in the northern municipality of Kula in a joint venture with the Serbian companies Fintel Energija and MK Group.

The agreement for the Agrosolar Kula project was signed in Belgrade on Wednesday and it has an estimated value of EUR 340m.

It will be the first agrivoltaic project in Serbia and the largest in Europe. It will enable the simultaneous production of agricultural crops and solar energy over the same surface area.

During the first stage of the project, a small 50 kW pilot solar park will be constructed. Its construction will commence in the next three months, Fintel Energija CEO Tiziano Giovannetti said at the signing ceremony.

The second stage will entail the construction of a solar powered facility for the production of green hydrogen, said Andrija Vukovic, CFO of MK Group, adding that this new technology would also enable the production of 300 tonnes of urea fertilizer per day.

Once it is completed, the Agrosolar Kula agrivoltaic plant will produce 832 GWh of electricity, which is enough to power 200,000 households.

Last July, the Serbian government adopted a regulation allowing state-owned agricultural land to be leased for non-agricultural use, including the installation of wind and solar plants.
