Energiekontor And Hanwha Q CELLS Connect 10 MW Plant In Germany
Energiekontor AG and Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH, the German subsidiary of the world's largest manufacturer of solar cells, Hanwha Q CELLS, have put a solar power plant with a capacity of 10 MW into operation in Brandenburg. The ground-mounted system is comprised of 35,073 Q CELLS solar modules and will produce enough sustainable electricity to power around 3,000 homes. The system will produce approximately 10 million kilowatt-hours of clean electricity per year, saving almost 5,500 tons of CO2.
Bremen-based Energiekontor AG completed the project in 4 months. Internationally leading photovoltaic supplier Hanwha Q CELLS, whose Technology & Quality headquarters is located in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, supplied Q.PLUS BFR-G4.1 285 Wp high-quality solar modules for the project.
Piotr Jankowski, Project Coordinator for Energiekontor AG said: "The solar park is a great example that photovoltaic systems pay off in Germany. The crucial factors for the highest possible profitability are professional planning, smooth construction and especially the performance and quality of the solar modules used. The good price-performance ratio of Q CELLS modules make the decisive difference." Q CELLS modules have prevailed against competition due to the high yield they provide, even under conditions of low light and high temperatures. As a result, thanks to Q.ANTUM technology, they reduce the electricity generation ¬costs while increasing the economic profitability of the plant.
Marco Schweitzer, Senior Specialist Account Manager for Hanwha Q CELLS, commented: "We thank Energiekontor for relying on Q CELLS modules in this large-scale project. We share our high quality standards as well as our sustainable track record of project success, and thus, we are looking forward to continue and expand our cooperation in the future."
