International PV developer, Gehrlicher Solar, has completed three ground-mounted solar installations in Romania with a total capacity of 9MW.
The three arrays were built in just six weeks for a private investor in Mures, Transylvania, north-west of Romania’s capital, Bucharest.
It is hoped each of the three systems will produce around 4 million kWh of electricity a year.
The projects will be supported for 15 years by Romania’s Green Certificate renewable energy incentives, despite recent cuts in the government programme.
Klaus Gehrlicher, CEO of Gehrlicher Solar, said: “We are very pleased to have been awarded the contract for the design and construction of three additional solar parks in Romania.”
Gehrlicher installed its in-house developed ‘GehrTec’ Base substructure, a flexible mounting system customised to the local territory, supposedly suitable for any terrain.
Gehrlicher also used 36,168 modules manufactured by Chinese module manufacturer, Jinko Solar, and nine central inverters produced by SMA Solar Technology to convert the projects’ generated solar power into grid-compatible direct currents.
Gehrlicher Solar aims to reach a total installed capacity of more than 23MW in Romania, with two more 2.5MW Romanian solar projects already under construction in Brasov, southern Romania.
German manufacturer and EPC firmConergy also recently announced plans to build 540kW rooftop projects in Romania, despite the latest cut in Green Certificates from six to four.
