9.5 MWp solar power plant commissioned
Berlin, 19 July 2011: The plant meets the annual electricity requirements of around 2,600 households
Berlin/ Vockerode, 19th Juli 2011: vogt solar GmbH was commissioned by Sunspa3 GmbH to build a 9.5 MW solar photovoltaic power plant in Vockerode, Saxony-Anhalt (Germany). The plant will consist of 40,320 ground-mounted photovoltaic modules over an area of 19 hectares. This fallow industrial site (once home for a greenhouse owned by the administrative district of Wittenberg since 1992) can now be used commercially to create energy. The plants’ total output will meet the annual electricity requirements of around 2,600 households, saving 4,800 tonnes of CO2. Grid connection is planned for August 2011.
Professor Dr Birgitta Wolff, Minister of Science and Economic Affairs for the State of Saxony-Anhalt, symbolically turned the first spade of earth at Tuesday’s ground breaking ceremony. This marked the official start of the construction works.
vogt solar GmbH is proud to have developed the project, and to obtain the building permit and construction approval for this solar power plant. In addition, the company is responsible for the realisation of the complete project, acting as EPCM. Construction services are primarily conducted by local companies.
