General information

Forus Oy is planning a solar power park in the areas of Röjsjön and Brännankärret in Loviisa. The project area covers 135 hectares for Röjsjön and 52 hectares for Brännankärret. The total area of the solar park is 187 hectares, and the estimated capacity of the solar power plant is approximately 120 MW

The project developer for the initiative is the Finnish company Forus Ltd, with the aim of developing solar power while considering biodiversity and promoting carbon neutrality goals. The project's funding, technical planning, and construction are managed by the Finnish project company of the Danish Better Energy. The company will also remain the owner of the power plant and be responsible for electricity production and sales.

The Loviisa City Council decided on March 15, 2023, to join the Towards Carbon Neutral Municipality (Hinku) network. Therefore, Loviisa commits to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2030 from the levels of 2007. According to the Loviisa City Strategy for 2022–2025, the goal is to become a carbon-neutral city by 2035. Read the full press release here.
