The Energy Solutions division of German technology manufacturer Gildemeister has been awarded contracts worth €29.2 million (US$38.5 million) to deliver PV power plants and energy storage technology in Romania, Germany and Italy.

As part of the contract, the company will install an 8MW solar park just north of Bucherest in Romania while another project, whose capacity has not been revealed, will be set up west of the city.

Meanwhile, in Italy, the company has sold a 6.5MW PV plant near Rimini in Italy to a German investor.

In Germany, Gildemeister will deliver a major vanadium redox flow battery for the SmartRegion Pellworm project owned by electricity supplier E.ON. The battery has a capacity of 1.6MW and stores electricity generated from wind and solar installations on the Germany-owned islands in the North Sea.

The projects for the production and storage of solar power in Romania and Germany will begin by the end of 2012.
