Parabel has been commissioned to develop one of Europe’s largest solar systems, the 41MW park in Brandenburg, Germany. The park, situated on the site of a former military training ground, is currently in the first planning and approval phase, with construction expected to take place between June and August; the final phase will increase output to 90MW and be completed in 2012.
“Using conversion areas for photovoltaic facilities is a sensible and attractive option from both an ecological and an economic point of view,” said Jürgen Will, managing director of Parabel. “We are currently conducting an investor selection process and we invite all investors with an interest in the project to contact us by the end of February.”
The initial development will see around 180,000 modules installed across 94 hectares and at a cost of €90 million.
