Scandinavian solar power company REC has sold a German ground mounted 6MW PV plant in Bitterfeld to two Chorus Group investors, including Chorus Cleantech. REC took over the project in 2011 from the plant’s former developer, Grüne Energien, and successfully developed, financed and constructed the project with project financing from the Deutsche Kreditbank (DKB). Construction was finished in December 2011 to ensure the project’s eligibility for the higher 2011 FiT.
The plant is located on a 13ha site near Bitterfeld and equipped with 27,096 REC PV modules with a total capacity of 6,101MWh per year.
Thomas Laumont, managing director of Chorus Cleantech said: “We are extremely happy to acquire yet another state-of-the-art solar power plant from REC Systems. REC Systems’ management of the development and building of this project ensures the reliability of this solar power plant for the years to come.”
