Conergy has constructed its fourth PV solar plant for German private investor Stephan Johannsen. The plant has a capacity of 3.4MW and closely follows the inauguration of the 8MW PV plant in Grimmen in March, which Conergy also built for the investor.
This latest solar park is located in Worpswede, Germany, and is part of the local project Energiewende Osterholz 2030 (Osterholz Energy Transition 2030). The park covers an area of 8 hectares and houses some 14,000 Conergy PowerPlus modules on around 16 kilometres of Conergy SolarLinea ground-mounted systems. There are also around 35 kilometres of solar cable laid out across the site which transports solar power from the modules to the ten Conergy IPG 300C central inverters, which feed the 3.1 million kWh of solar power into the Worpswede grid every year.
As general contractor, Congery held the responsibility of designing and engineering the park. It also constructed and supplied all of the components. Reon, a developer of renewable energy projects based in Worpswede, also gave a hand in developing this solar park. Reon has been involved in Osterholz Energy Transition 2030 a as project developer since the local project started.
So far, Conergy has installed more than 25MW of solar in capacity for Stephen Johannsen. “Conergy has been collaborating with us on our solar projects as a consistently competent and extremely reliable partner – for free-field as well as rooftop plants,” said Stephan Johannsen. “We have already installed over 25 megawatts of solar capacity together. With the power plant in Worpswede, we are jointly expanding our commitment to renewable energies in the region. Conergy is supplying us with everything from a single source and in genuine ‘Made in Germany’ quality, from the components from its own manufacture to the installation. Our experiences with their services have been outstanding and we shall continue putting our trust in them.”
