Last month, construction began on Solarpark Roitzsch in the district of Anhalt-Bitterfeld, Germany. 45,000 modules will be supplied by Schott Solar to the 10.5MW project developed and financed by Capital Stage.
The solar power plant is expected to connect with the grid by the end of the year and then generate approximately 12.8 million kW hours of power. Through the Renewable Energy Sources Act, Solarpark Roitzsch will receive remuneration of approximately €0.22 kW/h for 20 years.
Capital Stage hopes Schott Solar’s 50 years of experience in the PV industry and reputation for high-performance modules will make this project a success. Schott Solar recently showcased its new 72-cell ‘SCHOTT POWER’ POLY 275 – 285W module at SPI 2011 in Texas.
Each of the 45,000 of these polycrystalline modules that Schott Solar will be delivering for the project has an output of 230W peak.
“With Solarpark Roitzsch, we are now able to add yet another major project to our reference list,” says Burkhard Söhngen, the vice president responsible for the project business at Schott Solar”.
Capital Stage currently owns and operates solar parks with a total capacity of 94MW and is thus Germany's largest independent power producer.
“We attach a great deal of importance to the durability of the modules we install in our solar parks. In Schott Solar, we not only found a reliable supplier for the Roitzsch project who guarantees first-class quality, we also view Schott Solar to be a partner with whom we will be able to extend our cooperation even further and thus expand our solar park business in a consistent manner to the benefit of both parties,” notes Felix Goedhart, chairman of the board of management of Capital Stage.
