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.

  • Photovoltaics International 24th Edition

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
