SolarWorld noted that its large-scale system business expansion has been successful thus far with the company pointing to 33MW of total power being connected to the grid in Germany during Q2 2012. The company connected five solar farms in commercial and industrial areas in the Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Lower Saxony and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. The farms will supply over 30 million kWh of power per year.
The company noted that its success was bolstered with the integration of Solarparc earlier this year. Solarparc is expected to handle the operational management for some of the projects. SolarWorld supplied 79,800 modules for the 18.8MW solar farm near Magdeburg. The company additionally provided 41,808 modules for a 10.2MW solar farm in Barth.
“Getting a volume of over 30MW ready for operation in such a short time and successfully selling installations this large is something to be proud of,” said Dr. Frank Asbeck, chairman and CEO of SolarWorld AG. “You need the years of experience of Solarparc as well as the support of a strong manufacturer like SolarWorld to be able to pull off such an achievement.”
