Construction work has begun on one of Germany’s largest solar parks, reports PV Magazine. The 40MW system, located on the site of a former military airport in Fürstenwalde, is being built by solarhybrid at a total cost of €76 million.

Suntech is supplying the 173,712 modules for the installation, while SMA is providing the accompanying 46 inverters and Gestelltechnik the mounting systems. Grid connection has been pencilled in for late October. When complete, Fürstenwalde is expected to produce around 36.5 million kWh of electricity per annum.

Fürstenwalde is the latest system solarhybrid and Suntech have collaborated on after forming a strategic partnership in May. The partnership will help solarhybrid fulfill a project pipeline totalling 81.5MW.
