Schott Solar intensifies Greek activities


The company has opened a new sales office in Thessaloniki, and says that it has secured further orders for next year. Dr. Martin Heming, chairman of the board, Schott Solar added that it is looking, in the medium term, to secure a market share of between five and ten percent.

Additionally, at the start of next year, Schott is looking to realize a two megawatt (MW) project.

“The Greek photovoltaics market is developing rapidly: already in this year, around 120 megawatts (MWs) have been installed,” commented Heming. “We are counting on the fact that in the next year, between 180 and 200 MWs will be added.”

He continued by saying that the company has been involved in the Greek market for many years and, in 2004, along with local partners, installed a solar system on the roof of Athens’ international airport. In the same year, Schott installed what was then the largest Greek rooftop solar system, on the Deutschen Schule Athens (DSA).
