Everything is ensured in Romania for a successful green energy turn – told Mr. Keresztes. The high number of sunny hours, and the attractive economy for the investors are ideal for the new investment in the renewable sector.

The group is preparing to implement 1,2 GW projects in Romania
The group is preparing to implement 1,2 GW projects in Romania and three factories to serve the material needs of solar power plants from 2024. Using the financial sources of European The Recovery and Resiliance Facility (RFF) Astrasun plans to build and operate an ingot wafer, a solar cell and a photovoltaic modul factory in Romania in cooperation of European Solar Manufacturer Council in South Romania, in the region of Turnu Măgurele.
The first factory producing ingot-wafer for 1,8 GW capacity ensures jobs for ca. 480-500 people, which means 6% of the human resource of the whole project. The expected income is 260 million euros a year after the investments cost 102 million euros in the first 24 months.
The second, solar cells factory planned 195 million euros income a year needs ca. 240-250 employees producing cells for 1,5 GW capacity. This investment will cost nearly 110 million euros in the first two years.
Solar panels are complex system capable of generating electricity for at least 25 years. The expectations against solar panels factory are producing panels for 1,2 GW capacity of pv modules on yearly basis, which generates 285 million euros revenue and ensure jobs for ca. 80 people−10 % of the human resource of whole project−after investing 55 million euros in the first 2 years.

More than clean energy – EXTRA CLEAN PRODUCTION
Solar plants covering a previous landfill
Clean construction and facility operation
We use as little concrete as possible during installation. We use less concrete and use small machines to leave less carbon foot on our lands.
The Solar sheep® service
ASTRASUN has launched its Solar sheep® program based on its own good experience. Sheep breeding and grazing take place in the self-maintained solar power plants, and the Company has already made this available to its partners. Mowing is carried out by a flock of sheep, so the use of petrol mowers doesn’t pollute the air, and the natural fertilization of the soil also enriches the wildlife.
