Phoenix Solar's Greek subsidiary, Phoenix Solar E.P.E., has been given the role of EPC contractor for a 1.1MW solar power plant in Kolindros, Central Macedonia.
Phoenix Solar is in charge of the design and construction of the solar park, as well as for the delivery of modules, inverters and components. Construction work began in September 2011 and has already been completed. Grid connection has been scheduled for the end of October. Over 5,600 crystalline solar modules will be producing more than 1,400 mWh of electricity a year. This will supply in excess of 450 average Greek households with electricity and avoid more than 1,600 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year. The feed-in tariff comes to more than €0.37 per kWh and is therefore significantly higher than in Germany where it is currently €0.2207 per kWh for PV plants on conversion sites. Today’s capacity in installed PVs has apparently reached 198MW and is expected to reach 2.200MW by 2020
Dr. Christos Protogeropoulos, general manager of Phoenix Solar in Greece said, “Having already built the largest photovoltaic power plant in Central Greece with a peak power of 2MW in Douneika this year, we are delighted to be making another contribution to promoting renewable energies in Greece with the power plant in Kolindros.”
The project has been commissioned by Sol Power Production and Trading Electricity SA, a US-based environmental company who creates fuel-enhancing agents, which helps to stabilise fuel, restrict the separation and oxidation process and limits fuel degradation.
