Conergy has finished work on its new 2.2MW PV park in north Brandenburg, Germany. Once connected to the grid, the system, which is made up of 27,300 modules and spans 12 acres, will generate 2,134 MWh of electricity every year.
Despite this year’s harsh winter, Conergy took just six weeks to complete the system, with project developers Helonius even resorting to using Bunsen burners to free mounting systems from the thick ice. “Snow, ice and extreme cold posed huge challenges. However, despite the extreme conditions, Conergy managed to finish the solar park due to their great commitment in record time,” said Helonius’ general manager Harald Winter.
Conergy project manager Lars Grönke added, “We strengthened the team on site in order to make headway on the large amount of work. This allowed us to meet the tight schedule and timely grid connection of the solar park – and thus ensure our customers a very lucrative feed-in tariff.”
Due to their successful collaboration on the north Brandenburg plant, Helonius and Conergy are already making plans to work together on more PV installations in the future.
