Vienna-based law firm PHH has advised Kommunalkredit Austria AG (Kommunalkredit) on the project financing of the Senyö photovoltaic plant with a peak capacity of 63 MW.
By early 2024, a major solar park will commence operations in Senyö / Hungary, fortifying Hungary’s energy infrastructure. GREEN SOURCE and CORE VALUE CAPITAL have commissioned the German-based Iqony Solar Energy Solutions GmbH to construct the plant on the basis of an EPC (engineering procurement and construction) contract. To date, GREEN SOURCE and CORE VALUE CAPITAL have developed and implemented more than 30 energy projects with a total capacity of more than 332 MWp and a total investment volume of over EUR 820 million in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Croatia, Romania, Russia and Hungary. In addition to the Senyö solar park, four additional PV plants are currently in development in Hungary.
Anna Hofmann, managing director of Green Source, comments: “With the construction of the Senyö solar park in Hungary, GREEN SOURCE, together with our partner Core Value CAPITAL, continues its expansion in the renewables sector in Central and Eastern Europe. As in previous projects, we have built on the financial expertise of Kommunalkredit.”

We are proud to have led this transaction, as it will provide communities with renewable energy and congratulate Green Source and Core Value Capital on realizing this important project. We are looking forward to continuing our co-operation with Green Source and CORE VALUE CAPITAL and provide our support to accelerate the green transition with future joint projects.”
