Canadian Solar Supplies Solar Modules for the Biggest Solar Park in Hesse
Kitchener - Canadian Solar Inc., announced that it has delivered solar modules for a 8 MW PV installation built in the German city of Dreieich-Buchschlag. The Federal
State of Hesse's biggest solar park was finalized on the premises of a
former waste landfill site. The PV system installation supplies electricity
for up to 2,000 homes in Dreieich.
More than 40,000 Canadian Solar modules were installed on an area spanning
153,000 square meters within the period of a few weeks. The project
contractor was Frankfurter Entsorgungs- und Service GmbH (FES). Onsite
construction was carried out by the Sinusstrom GmbH. The solar park is
operated by the RMS Rhein-Main Solarpark GmbH, a joint subsidiary of the
Stadtwerke Dreieich and the FES. The project allocated 25 percent of the
modules for use as a public participation solar park, administered by the
Solar Initiative Marburg e.V.
"With a solar project of this size the smooth implementation and
installation of high performance quality modules is essential. Having chosen
the right partners, we accomplished installation and grid connection by the
end of 2011," said FES project manager Florian Benten.
"We are pleased that RMS Rhein-Main Solarpark GmbH and Sinusstrom have
chosen solar modules by Canadian Solar. The Federal State of Hesse set an
admirable target of fully meeting its energy needs through renewable energy
by the year 2050. Today, solar is a more powerful and cost efficient energy
solution than ever before. Solar can truly play an important role in helping
the Federal State of Hesse and all others worldwide to meet their renewable
energy goals," added Dr Shawn Qu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of
