Project Focus: Suntech supplies 93,000 modules to 24.5MW solar plant in Germany


Construction has started on a 24.5MW solar plant at a former military airport in the village of Schorfheide near Eberswalde, Germany using 93,000 Suntech multicrystalline modules and inverters from SMA. General contractor for the €58 million project is solarhybrid and its partner, Enerparc. The project is expected to be completed by the end of April 2010.

Solarhybrid said that the installation of solar panels, rack equipment, and inverters, including the connection to the substation, would be handled by  Conecon, with the connection to the substation by WT energy systems. The double module frame system is being supplied by Technology Mounting Systems.

“The sizing on 77 acres allows for efficient planning and assembly, and thus a rapid construction progress,” noted Tom Schröder, president/CEO, solarhybrid.

WVZ Finow owns and operates the airport. Funding for the project came from solarinvestra FinowTower and Commerzbank.
