Masdar PV and Beck Energy have finished work on a ground-mounted solar system in the east German town of Luckenwalde. Around 6.1 million kWh of electricity will be generated by the site – enough to power over 2,000 homes in the region. The 30-hectare facility is fitted with 65,000 Masdar modules and was connected to the German grid in just two months.
“We have created a reference project here for future utility-scale photovoltaic power plants and for our Masdar PV product”, said Masdar’s CEO, Frank Wouters. “We are convinced that large-scale plants of this type will make an important contribution to the local and regional diversification of the energy mix.”
Wouters added that Masdar had agreed to collaborate with Beck Energy on several smaller-scale projects, including plants in Abu Dhabi. “We are confident that we have found a powerful partner in Beck Energy with whom we can successfully carry out projects in our target markets around the world.”
