Active Projects

Our three electricity production projects – Project B, SolWin, and SolWin1 – are a part of a comprehensive renewable energy production initiative in Latvia. With a combined capacity of 1 GW, these projects leverage the abundant solar and wind resources in the regions. Situated across diverse landscapes, they benefit from attractive insolation profiles and cover substantial acreages. Collectively, these projects represent a significant investment in renewable energy infrastructure, aiming to generate clean and reliable power while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Our four recently initiated PtX projects are a logical outcome of renewable production initiatives in Latvia, enabling a predictable flow of electricity production.

SolWin: Hybrid 400 MW

Jekabpils as a strong economic region in the east of Latvia has been chosen to accommodate one of two hybrid parks that PurpleGreen is developing. A hybrid park is a combination of solar and wind energy technologies, providing electricity production from renewables throughout all seasons and weather conditions. With a 400 MW AC reserved grid capacity, Project SolWin is expected to install 500 MW DC of solar power with a supplementary 60 wind turbines resulting in 360 MW wind power. The annual electricity production generated from renewables will reach up to 500 GWh of solar and 1200 GWh of wind energy.

SolWin 1: Hybrid 200 MW

SolWin 1 is the second of two hybrid parks that PurpleGreen is developing in the economic region of Jekabpils. With a 200 MW AC reserved grid capacity, project SolWin 1 is expected to install 250 MW DC of solar power with a supplementary 25 wind turbines resulting in 150 MW wind power. The annual electricity production generated from renewables will reach up to 250 GWh of solar and 500 GWh of wind energy.

Project B: PV 400 MW

With a total of 1200 ha secured land located in the region of Balvi and 400 MW AC reserved grid capacity, PurpleGreen is developing one of the largest solar plants in Europe reaching a total power capacity of 500 MW DC. After completing construction works, the solar plant will generate up to 500 GWh of electricity from renewables annually making renewable energy more available and helping to reach carbon neutral goals together.

Saldus: H2 400 MW

PurpleGreen has entered into an 18-hectare land lease agreement to establish a large-scale production plant for green hydrogen and its derivatives.
We have successfully secured a grid connection with a capacity of 400 MW for the production of green molecules at this location.

Ventspils: H2 550 MW

PurpleGreen has signed a 45-year, 10-hectare land lease agreement with the Freeport of Ventspils to develop a large-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia production plant.
We have also secured a grid connection with a capacity of 550 MW for the production of green molecules at this location.

We believe Ventspils is the perfect location for the production and export of green ammonia, given its historical infrastructure and experience in handling up to 1.5 million tons of green ammonia annually. The existing export/import terminal for green ammonia, combined with railway infrastructure, allows the servicing of up to 250 rail tank wagons per day.

Jekabpils: H2 500-1500 MW

PurpleGreen has acquired land for the development of a large-scale production plant for green hydrogen and its derivatives.

We have successfully secured a grid connection with a capacity of 400 MW for the production of green molecules at this location, with the potential to increase its capacity up to 1 GW of renewable electricity.

In Jekabpils, we are developing a green ammonia production plant with the intention to export the product through a well-established railway connection. This railway connection extends both to the Ventspils ammonia terminal and in a southern direction towards Lithuania, providing a link to central Europe.

Balvi: H2 400 MW

PurpleGreen has acquired land to develop a large-scale production plant for green hydrogen and its derivatives. We have secured a grid connection with a capacity of 400MW for the production of green molecules at this location. In Balvi we are developing the project to produce e-methanol and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF). Balvi is in the eastern part of Latvia, which is rich in forests and therefore provides us with the opportunity to produce renewable CO₂. After renewable CO₂ is produced, it can be combined with green hydrogen to produce e-methanol and SAF.

SUSTAINABLE FUELS

A substitution for fossil fuels that the world will not be imaginable without

The implementation of alternative sustainable fuels into everyday life will change the perception of infrastructure and transportation, also helping to reach carbon neutral goals together. PurpleGreen has thought about every part of this cycle.

POWER GRID

The fundamentally necessary infrastructure to PurpleGreen value chain

Power grid network transmits the electricity produced by PurpleGreen projects:
A) For production of Hydrogen (H2);
B) Into batteries for storage;
C) For end use (households, production facilities, public infrastructure, transportation).

BATTERIES

Works like a regular battery, but with much more power to it

With the implementation of batteries, grid network balancing and electricity trading is provided by PurpleGreen, expanding the range of our services.

AMMONIA

Hydrogen (H2) in combination with Nitrogen (N2) produces Ammonia (NH3)

Ammonia (NH3) is used for end use (alternative fuel, production of fertilizers). Ammonia (NH3) can be transported through EU H2 pipeline or cargo ship for further destinations, as well as transported with cargo trucks to nearest H2 stations.

SOLAR & WIND PARKS

From electrolysis process Hydrogen (H2) is produced

We use agricultural land plots for installing solar and wind farms. Land plots left out are used for agricultural purposes. With PurpleGreen projects, landowners and farmers get paid for land lease as well as harvested products.

Produced electricity is:
A) transmitted to grid network;
B) stored in to batteries, later transmitted to grid network;
C) in combination with added water used for electrolysis process.

HYDROGEN (H2)

From electrolysis process Hydrogen (H2) is produced

Hydrogen (H2) can be transported through EU H2 pipeline or Provaris H2 cargo ship for further destinations, as well as transported with cargo trucks to nearest H2 stations.
