Ørsted has completed its Muscle Shoals photovoltaic project of 227MWac located in Colbert County, Alabama, Ørsted informs in a statement Monday afternoon.
The project, comprised of 670,000 solar modules, files under the Tennessee Valley Authority's service area (TVA), also supporting a sustainability target set by a Facebook-owned data center in Huntsville, Alabama.
"We're very excited to add to our high-quality, diverse customer base through this long-term partnership with TVA and Facebook," writes Chief Commercial Officer Vishal Kapadia of Ørsted's Onshore business:
"The acquisition and completion of Muscle Shoals represent the continued successful execution of our expansion strategy in which we seek to complement our core market greenfield development activities with opportunistic acquisitions in new markets to diversify our portfolio."
Ørsted purchased Muscle Shoals in 2020 from Longroad Energy. Combining PV with energy storage capacity, the facility features 1.4GW in capacity either installed or under development, the statement informs.
The solar farm boosts Ørsted's consolidated PV capacity to beyond 647MW.
