The investment plans, submitted by the companies for Environmental Impact Assessment, read that installed capacity of the three power sources is projected at 11.1 megawatt at peak supply. Thus, the facilities are expected to supply a maximum of 9.9 gigawatt hours to the transmission network annually. The investors plan to start power production in August 2010. The facilities are to be built on an area of almost 233,000 square meters to the south of Hurbanovo, SITA wrote.

Almost 53,000 photovoltaic panels will be used as the power sources. The national electricity transmission network operator SEPS has issued a positive opinion for the investors, a condition to obtain a construction certificate from the Economy Ministry. According to the Commercial Register, European Electroning Trading was established in 2007. Its main business line covers information and services provided through the Internet as well as data processing. Estates-Reality was founded in 2006 and, apart from others, deals with mediation of real estate purchase, sale or rentals and market research. Maltech was established in 2004.
