Soltech and Fastec in major solar energy investment for Castellum

The solar energy group Soltech Energy continues to design and install large roof-mounted solar energy solutions. The real estate company Castellum will now have a solar plant of 1 MW on its property in Kungsängen, just outside Stockholm. Soltech and the construction company Fastec signed an agreement with Castellum for a roof-mounted solar energy solution with construction start at the end of 2021. The installation is about the same size as the solar energy panels on 130 villa roofs.

Soltech Energy has a vast experience in creating solar energy solutions for real estate companies. Previously, the solar energy group's subsidiaries have constructed one of the Nordic region's largest roof-mounted solar cell solution for the real estate company, Castellum, and now Soltech is gaining renewed confidence. The subsidiaries Swede Energy and Soltech Sales & Support will jointly construct and build what will be Castellum's new solar energy solution on their logistics property in Kungsängen.

– We want to contribute to tomorrow's society where increased electrification and climate changes sets new demands. To meet this, the share of renewable energy must increase. It therefore feels both great and valuable to be able to collaborate with Fastec and Castellum in the installation of this solar energy solution in Kungsängen, about the same size as the solar energy panels on 130 villa roofs. Together, we create great value for both the economy and the environment. We think this is reason enough for property owners to choose solar energy solutions and thus secure their future electricity supply, says Sebastian G Wibling, Sales Manager at Soltech Sales & Support.

– Fastec wants to act where change for a sustainable society is created. Therefore, it feels great to have the opportunity to collaborate with a solar energy partner in the forefront and a real estate company with an impressive sustainability focus. Projects like this are important in the green transition and we are very much looking forward to working with Soltech and Castellum, says Erik Lindmark, Marketing Manager at Fastec.

A real estate player with high sustainability ambitions
Castellum is one of the Nordic region's most sustainable real estate companies and the sustainability work is fully integrated into its core business. One of the objectives of the sustainability strategy is to increase the share of renewable energy to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions. An ambition that is now intensified when the real estate company once again collaborates with Soltech so that more of their properties operates on solar energy.

– This is completely in line with our overall sustainability goals. Castellum is a leader in sustainability in the real estate industry and takes great responsibility for developing society in a sustainable direction. Solar energy is one of the keys to securing the future of our properties, both in terms of ecological and economic sustainability, says Filip Elland, Sustainability Manager at Castellum.
