COLEXON connects world's largest rooftop PV power plant of thin film technology to the grid

Rooftop solar power plant with a capacity of 4.64 MWp commissioned according to schedule \ Fast project realization within six months underscores COLEXON's market position as a leading system integrator

Hamburg, (PresseBox) - Today, COLEXON Energy AG grid-connected the world's largest rooftop photovoltaic power plant of thin film modules with a capacity of 4.64 MWp in Hassleben (Brandenburg/Germany) - built in a construction time of only six months. The project's order volume amounts to EUR 17.5 million. Contracting partner is a dutch investor, who also owns the rooftop via the "Biogasanlage Hassleben GmbH". The plant will generate an estimated electrical power of 4.35 million kilowatt hours per year, which corresponds to an annual reduction in carbon dioxide emissions of more than 3,800 tons. Based on the current feed-in-tariff of 43,99 cent/kWh the installation will generate revenues of more than EUR 1.9 million per year.

Next to the extremely quick installation of the power plant, another highlight during construction was the airlift of modules. Due to costs and efficiency, 10,000 of the total 64,000 First Solar solar modules to be installed were lifted to the roof by helicopter. With a roof area of approx. 224,000 sqm, this special way of module transport enabled enormous time savings.

Thorsten Preugschas, CEO of the COLEXON Energy AG, is proud of the successful completion of the project: "With this flagship project we once again prove our strengths as project developer of large rooftop solar power systems, demonstrating high product and service quality, quick implementation and excellent price-performance ratio for our customers." Thus, COLEXON once again underlines its position as one of the leading system integrators in the field of large rooftop PV systems.

For the third time in a row COLEXON sets this world record for powerful solar rooftop systems. Already in 2006 and 2007, the company had completed projects in this segment that earned recognition as the world's largest solar power plant at that time: The Gescher project (2006) with a capacity of 1.4 MWp and the Ramstein project (2007) with a capacity of 2.5 MWp.
