Oldenburg/Prenzlau, 07. April 2011, aleo solar AG [ISIN: DE000A0JM634] will be attending the 2011 Ecotec trade fair in Athens, Greece, from Thursday 7th April to Sunday 10rd April. The company's current product portfolio will be presented by experts from the aleo's Greek branch office. Ecotec is one of the most important trade fair for renewable energies in Greece.
The German premium module manufacturer has recently delivered more than 9,000 of its aleo S_18 modules for a two-megawatt open-field solar power plant in Theben, northwest of Athens. The plant is expected to produce 2,800,000 kilowatt hours annually - equivalent to the annual energy consumption of 830 Greek three-person households. This will prevent 2,500 tonnes of harmful CO2 from being emitted each year. The solar farm was constructed by one of Greece's leading solar energy companies: RSEnergy Hellas Solartechnik Ltd., based in Volos, installed photovoltaic plants with a total output of five megawatts in 2010.
The collaboration of aleo solar AG and RSEnergy Hellas Solartechnik Ltd. will continue in 2011; a master agreement for the delivery of five megawatts has already been signed. The premium modules will be used for solar roofs on private homes and commercial buildings as well as for open-field installations. "We are excited to have signed this master agreement, which extends our collaboration that began in 2007," said Thanasis Sakkas, Head of Sales for aleo solar in Greece and Cyprus. Ralf Müller-Polyzos, CEO of RSEnergy, adds: "The excellent quality of aleo solar's modules
combined with the direct local support provided here in Greece are important factors for both RSEnergy and our customers."
The plant will be operated by the Greek investor Nea Elektra A.B.E.E. "We decided to make a sustainable, safe and environmentally friendly investment. The modules fromaleo solar are designed to last and are optimised to deliver maximum yields," said Loukas Saridis, Chairman of Nea Elektra.
