Obton, Ambassador, King's Commissioner and Mayor inaugurate 14 MWp solarpark in the Netherlands

Anders Marcus CEO of Obton unveiled the solar-lit sign to be mounted at the entrance of Obton’s first solar park in the Netherlands. The solar park is inaugurated by the honorable guests: the Mayor of Stadskanaal, the Danish Ambassador to the Netherlands, King’s Commissioner and the Dutch bank, ING. 

- It has been a great experience to have worked with such competent and straight-forward professionals throughout this project. At Obton, we cherish and embrace the work effort that has been put into the completion of the project, says CEO Anders Marcus.

Obton sees great potential in the Netherlands where the ambition is to supply the future Dutch energy market with power from solar energy. For the next couple of years, Obton is expected to expand its portfolio in the Netherlands with 100-200 MWp.

Obton’s Chief Project Officer, Bent Hansen, has the following comment on the completion:

- I’m extremely satisfied with how the project came together. There can be no doubt that this is an extremely professional and ambitious group of people we have had the pleasure to work with – and we are thrilled to start the projects to come. 

The lender of the project, ING, is also expressing their enthusiasm over the project and the collaboration with Obton. Director – Head Sustainable Project Finance, Marc Borghans, says: 

- I look forward to continue cooperating with the professional and experienced people from Obton, who for several years have proven that they are capable of planning and executing major solar projects. I’m convinced that together we will be able to make a real impact in the Dutch market. 

Over a number of years, Obton has become one of the major players in the European PV market; however, the ambitions extend much further, therefore Obton’s entry into the Dutch market matches perfectly with the company’s ambitious growth strategy.
