Conergy Greece has completed nine solar parks on the island of Crete. The plants are spread out across the island, located in the Prefectures of Chania and Lasithi. The company has installed more than 2,500 Conergy PowerPlus modules on Conergy SolarGigant and Conergy SolarLinea mounting systems, together with a total of 90 Conergy IPG 5 S inverters. The solar parks are expected to produce a combined total of approximately 1.2MWh a year.
“The parks may be not the biggest of the world – however, they are small but mighty”, said Conergy Greece-chief, Dieter Schmitt. “The sun shine hours on the island are impressive. Due to the excellent conditions, we experience a great demand for our Conergy system technology also on the Greek islands. Our modules feature quality ‘Made in Germany’ – this is an important factor for our investors since they can be sure to benefit from the high yields for the entire lifetime of the installation.”
Project manager, Themis Lagorkopoulos said, “Despite the obstacles that we faced in terms of the extremely rocky grounds and the big slopes of the fields, we managed to develop customer-fit solutions for every single installation: Some parks are equipped with SolarLinea mounting systems. At some others, where it was impossible to ram the posts, we designed with SolarGigant ground-mounted systems. This is where we benefit from our long-lasting knowledge at Conergy in the designing, engineering and installation of solar parks.”
The parks have now been sold to different investors.
