How to erect a solar power plant: reference project by mp-tec

How to erect a solar power plant: 5 MW green field PV installation in Eberswalde, Brandenburg built in 2011

A five megawatt solar installation at the Technology and Business Park was connected to the grid on July 12, 2011, within a short distance of Eberswalde, Germany, based solar system company Mp-tec GmbH & Co.KG. Mp-tec was not only involved in the project planning, but also responsible for the solar power plant’s substructure for which its in-house developed Quick-line assembly system was used. Installed for the first time, the new single-foot assembly system allows for a quicker mounting of modules than conventional systems, resulting in less than three months from the start of the construction until the connection to the grid. The modular designed system will also be used in future ground-mounted solar plants and is module agnostic. Up to three rows of framed modules can be assembled horizontally, while five rows are possible with laminated modules.

The 36,720 thin-film modules from Solar Frontier, a 100 percent subsidiary of Showa Shell Sekiyu K.K., which have been manufactured in the 900MW Kunitomi plant in the south of Japan, are especially environmentally friendly due to the absence of lead and cadmium. The completion of the solar power plant represents the first connection to the grid of an installation with Solar Frontier modules in Brandenburg. “This power plant is an additional important step towards developing our project business segment and achieving bankability for the Solar Frontier products in collaboration with Mp-tec and financing by the DZ Bank. We will increase our efforts in the future in order to further expand our project pipeline together with EPCs”, said Wolfgang Lange, CEO of Solar Frontier Europe.

The 17-hectare installation will produce 969 kWh per kWp according to the yield report and therefore generate energy for up to 1,500 two-person households. Moreover, it will save up to 3,900 tons of CO2 emissions per year. Michael Preißel, Mp-tec’s CEO, said regarding the successful connection to the grid: “This project is of particular importance to us. On the one hand, we were able to prove our know-how with regard to assembly solutions and project development yet again, on the other hand the connection to the grid contributes to the realization of county Barnim’s motto: ‘the future is renewable’.”
