1.1 gigawatt portfolio: SECURSUN starts construction of first solar parks in Germany


SECURSUN has started the construction of the first solar parks from its portfolio of around 1.1 gigawatts. In total, more than 50 utility solar PV parks will be completed between the end of 2023 and 2026. All plants will be planned and constructed by the Berlin-based project developer securenergy solutions and SUNOTEC, Europe’s market leader in the construction of solar parks. The two companies each have a half share in the joint venture SECURSUN.

Construction of at least seven solar parks from the SECURSUN portfolio will begin this year. Amongst the first are the PV plants in Utzedel (near Demmin) and Brusow (near Kröpelin) both in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Ground-breaking of the site in Dallgow-Döberitz in Brandenburg (outside Berlin) will follow soon.

The average project size in the over 1.1 gigawatt large pipeline will be around 20 megawatts peak (MWp). Individual solar parks with up to 150 MWp are also planned. The PV plant in Frankenförde near Luckenwalde, about an hour’s drive southeast of Berlin, for example, will have a capacity of about 42 MWp. Construction is scheduled to start end of the year.

“Since the launch of our joint venture last November, less than a year has passed. The fact that the planning went so quickly was only made possible by the close cooperation between securenergy solutions and SUNOTEC. Now work has started at several locations at the same time,” says Holger Stabernack, CEO of securenergy solutions AG.“ The first SECURSUN projects prove how quickly things can be implemented when the right partners come together,” says Bernhard Suchland, CEO of the general contractor SUNOTEC. “We are proud that we can deliver everything from a single source.”

Last year, an overall capacity of photovoltaics of 7.2 GWp was built in Germany (ground-mounted and roof tops). The SECURSUN portfolio planned for the next three years accounts for comparatively 15 percent of this alone. “We are very pleased that we can contribute to the ambitious expansion targets in Germany with our more than 50 projects. It requires lots of speed to achieve what we need in terms of the energy transition in Germany,” says Holger Stabernack.
