In May 2018, the first phase of the solar park Amer was completed on the roof of the power station building housing the decommissioned units 6, 7 and 8. The solar park produces sustainable electricity for the annual consumption of approximately 150 average Dutch households. In 2021, the park will be substantially expanded, including the addition of floating panels.
The panels on the roof face practically south and are installed at an angle of ten degrees. Each panel has a capacity of 275 Watt/peak. The roof of the building did not need to be reinforced to carry the solar installation, which weighs 91,000 kilograms. Of this, 71,000 kilograms are ballast in the form of paving slabs that must keep the panels in place in strong winds. The power is supplied to the site's utility grid.
