Reinecke + Pohl Sun Energy AG: World’s largest PV roof-top power plant of thin-film modules implemented according to schedulege

(PresseBox) (Hamburg, ) The world largest thin-film rooftop photovoltaic power plant has been grid-connected yesterday after only four month of construction. The official handover from the RPSE subsidiary COLEXON to the investor, the British Consensus Business Group, is to take place at the beginning of September. The contract has a volume of about 9.5 Mio Euro and is an important milestone for the RPSE AG.

Over 37,000 First Solar thin-film modules have been installed on the 90,000 sqm large rooftop of a logistic centre in Ramstein, Germany. Moreover, 115 tons of cable and 24,000 m aluminium tanks with 1100 t of ballast chipping were used. Three inverters convert the continuous current into alternating current. Under the supervision of COLEXON up to 40 mechanics and electricians were working at the construction site. Thorsten Preugschas, board member of RPSE AG, is proud of the success:” With this landmark project we were able to confirm our strong position as a project developer, demonstrating high product and service quality, a quick implementation and excellent price-performance ratio for our costumers.”
The solar power plant will produce about 2,4 million kWh per year. Based on a feedin-tariff of 46,3 cent/kWh the installation will earn over 1.1 Mio Euro per year. This also accounts for saving of 2 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
