Located in Fürstenwalde/Spree on the site of a former military airport, the 39.61 megawatt (MW) project is being undertaken by solarhybrid AG. A total of 76 million has been invested in it.
Suntech will be supplying the 173,712 photovoltaic modules necessary for the installation, while SMA will deliver 46 inverters and Gestelltechnik the mounting systems.
In a statement, the company said the project should be ready to go online by the end of October. In order to reach this goal, it said that up to 350 local workers will be employed.
When complete, it is expected that the installation will generate around 36.5 million kilowatt hours of energy annually, which should be enough to supply 10,500 households.
Both Fürstenwaldes Mayor Hans-Ulrich Hengst, and Steinhöfels Mayor, Wolfgang Funke are said to support the project.
Just a few days ago, solarhybrid announced the construction of another German project, this time worth 30 MW and located in Cottbus-Drewitz.
