Provektor to set up its largest solar energy solution for agriculture

Soltech company Provektor, a solar technology firm, has been awarded a contract to install a solar array spanning over 5,200 square metres on the roof of Åkerholmen Lantbruk in Falköping. This solar installation is intended to provide solar-generated electricity to the cow sheds, fuelling milking machines, fans, and milk coolers.

As the flagship electrical engineering company within the Soltech Group, Provektor possesses extensive knowledge in electrical installations and automation. In addition to their established expertise, their integration into the Group has further enriched their proficiency in solar energy solutions.

Provektor will now construct its largest solar energy installation to date when Åkerholmen Lantbruk will get a rooftop solar solution of just over 5,200 square metres. The farm is run by Morgan and Camilla Dahlberg and is home to 750 dairy cows and another 1,150 young animals. According to Morgan, the choice of energy solution fell on solar cells was an obvious choice. Both in terms of smart use of unused space but also in terms of maintenance.

“Animal welfare and planning are key for us. I want an energy solution that doesn’t take my time and requires minimal maintenance. Since we need our land for grazing and grain, a rooftop solar solution is therefore a good fit. We also have great confidence in Provektor and it will be fun to get our own solar energy solution”, says Morgan Dahlberg, farmer.

“This project is very exciting for us. Åkerholmen has perfect installation conditions with large metal roofs with suitable slopes. In addition, we get to work in a beautiful environment and we looking forward to ensuring that agriculture can utilise the sun’s rays onwards”, says Johan Svensson, Project Manager, Provektor.
