Luka Koper, as the leading partner of the SOPOREM project successfully applied for funding and will receive 1.2 million euros for constructing new solar power plant. With the construction of a solar power plant, we will ensure higher energy self-sufficiency of the port, less dependance on fluctuations in electricity prices on the market and contribute to increasing the usage of solar energy in our region.

By 2025, we plan to install 6 megawatts of photovoltaic systems which will generate up to 20 % of electricity for our own consumption. By 2030 the power will be further increased to 10 megawatts – this represents more than 30 % of today’s electricity consumption of the entire port.
