German-based PV system integrator Carpevigo said that it successfully completed a 1.33 MWp solar plant in Bavaria, Germany, before the end of 2009. The solar power plant in Osterhofen was constructed on a 4.46ha area at the edge of the community of Osterhofen in the county of Deggendorf and is expected to generate 1,416 MWh of electricity annually. Carpevigo will take the plant into its own portfolio and Carpevigo Management GmbH will manage it during the scheduled period of operation for 20 years.
The company noted that similar specified plant located in the neighboring district of Deggendorf has delivered revenues 10% above target since it was put into operation in 2007.
The new plant has a fixed orientation of the solar panels and a mounting system delivered by PV-EIWA, a subsidiary company of Solea. Thin-film modules were provided by First Solar, while the inverters were provided by SMA Solar.
