The agreement is expected to be completed by April 2022 after fulfilment of the conditions precedent.
Arlandastad Group is committed to developing the 484 hectares of airport land in partnership with the municipality of Nyköping. The local urban plan has already been initiated, paving the way for the development of a logistics zone and a large-scale business park.
In this context, Arlandastad Group and VINCI Airports have signed an agreement enabling SunMind, a VINCI Concessions subsidiary, to develop, finance, build and maintain a solar farm on the airport site.

Connected to the public grid, it will help supply energy to the municipality of Nyköping. Arlandastad Group and VINCI Concessions will together explore opportunities for developing a programme of photovoltaic power plants in Sweden, in particular by using the land in Arlandastad Group’s portfolio.Email Post to a Friend
