Installed across 3.7 hectares in an industrial estate in the village of Oerzen, the park consists of 5,100 monocrystalline Hyundai solar modules and an SMA central inverter station, while Schletter provided the support structure.
SunEnergy acted as general contractor, while its partner company, IMS Erneuerbare Energien, was responsible for the DC side electrical work. It is expected that the project will generate enough electricity to cover the demand of 600 people per year.
The property belongs to a regional investor, who also developed the project. Christian Rolle, project engineer and site manager at SunEnergy Europe, explains that the task was a demanding one: "Our fitters did a great job. Neither temperatures of minus ten degrees Celsius nor twenty centimeters of snow could stop them.
"To make matters even more complicated, the soil was quite difficult to build on. A quick succession of sand, loam and topsoil required extensive engineering knowledge in order to find a solution which made both technical and economic sense."
