Germany: saferay and Canadian Solar work on 8.5 MW plant

Canadian Solar supplied the 36,000 CS6P-P photovoltaic modules needed for the project, which is scheduled for completion by Berlin-based saferay next month. To date 5.5 MW of the system has been installed.

"Thanks to favorable weather conditions, we are on track to complete the solar park installation so the power plant will be turnkey ready in December," commented Marko Schulz, saferay managing director.

The Lindenhof solar park is the second project to be completed by the two parties. In September, saferay completed 78 MW of the Senftenberg plant which, at a total size of 166 MW, is expected to be the biggest project of its kind in the world when finished.

Saferay has also worked on a number of other large-scale photovoltaic projects in Germany, including the 81 MWp Finsterwalde system in Brandenburg, and the 19 MW park, also located in Brandenburg, which Google invested in.
