Vattenfall has won the contract for a solar farm in Uppsala north of Stockholm.

Commissioned by the property company Vasakronan, Vattenfall is going to construct what will be one of Sweden’s largest solar farms; 11,000 solar panels in an area of about 70,000 square metres.

Vattenfall is responsible for design, installation and operation of the plant, which is planned to be commissioned before the summer.
