Located near the Luxembourg border, the plant is scheduled for completion this August and should generate around 2.3 million kilowatt hours of energy annually. This, says Scatec, is enough to meet the electricity needs of over 600 families.
Copcon developed the project, while Scatec designed, commissioned and will build it. When complete, it will comprise over 10,600 REC solar modules; SMA will supply the inverters.
In a statement, the company said: "The municipality of Utscheid will operate the plant themselves and produce more electricity than their 400 inhabitants consume on a yearly basis."
Scatec Solar operates mainly in Germany, Italy, the Czech Republic, France and Italy. Pictured is its 1.7 MW photovoltaic park, near Neumarkt.
