Korea-based module supplier, Hanwha SolarOne, has supplied 8.2MW of PV modules to a solar park in Germany.
Hanwha SolarOne, part of the Hanwha Group, delivered the modules for the Schlechtenberg solar park, developed by AIC Projects in southern Bavaria.
Due to the damp climate, the park was built on land not suitable for farming, beginning operation in September.
The expected annual generation from Schlechtenberg is 9.84 million kWh, with 33,000 Hanwha modules installed to power 2,000 households.
AIC developed the park with funding from a private investor who is also funding five other solar projects in the area; AIC Projects will also operate and maintain the park.
The installation was grid connected just a few months after legal permits obtained “which is very impressive for a project of this size”, said Thomas Junghans, account manager at Hanwha SolarOne.
“Financial conditions for large-scale solar projects in Germany have become extremely challenging and as a consequence, streamlined project planning and execution are absolutely crucial to secure profitability,” said Matthias Gerhardt, head of project development and project management at AIC Projects.
Hanwha has already supplied several of AIC Project’s solar parks,with more than 110,000 Hanwha Solar modules are producing clean energy in solar parks developed by AIC Project globally.
