Frankfurt, November 22, 2010, The Sinosol-Group has grid connected a 2.7 MWp solar power plant in Engstingen-Haid, Germany (close to Reutlingen), which it has developed and realized. The project is the largest solar park in Reutlingen County. Approximately 12,400 modules from the Chinese-manufacturer Yingli and central inverters from SMA have been used to build the PV park.
The project is built on a brown field, which was formerly used as a practice shooting range by the army in Engstingen. The construction of the project started in August 2010 with an approximate value of EUR 7 million. The works at the site of the former training area are nearly finished. "The conversion has worked exceptionally well in the Haid,” says Klaus-Peter Kleiner, the very pleased mayor of Engstingen and Head of the industry park Engstingen-Haid.
Raphael Krause, responsible for the project business on behalf of the board of Sinosol AG, states: „The project is successful proof for an ecologically expedient use of a brown field area. We hope that PV component prices in 2011 will allow further realization of PV power plants on brown fields in Germany for our institutional investors.“
