Canadian Solar announced that it has supplied solar modules for an 8.5 MW power plant in Lindenhof near Neubrandenburg in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Berlin-based saferay expects to complete the project next month.
With this cooperation to build the Lindenhof solar power plant Canadian Solar further extends its successful collaboration with project company saferay. The PV system uses a total of 36,000 CS6P-P solar modules manufactured by Canadian Solar. These modules are particularly powerful with high quality, reliability and good energy yield. "We continue to rely on Canadian Solar modules in our projects due to their outstanding quality and performance, and excellent customer service. This makes Canadian Solar a strong partner for us," said Dr. Marko Schulz, managing director of saferay. "Thanks to favorable weather conditions, we are on track to complete the solar park installation so the power plant will be turnkey ready in December. So far, we have completed 5.5 MW."
Successful partnership for large-scale projects
The solar park is the second large-scale project delivered by Canadian Solar and project development company saferay. In September 2011, saferay completed the Senftenberg II/III 78 MW partial complex in Brandenburg, part of the world's largest solar power plant (166 MW) using Canadian Solar modules. "This is a showcase partnership for us, where we are able to work with a strong local partner on large scale projects in a strategic geographic market. We look forward to continuing to work with saferay in the future and to providing the high efficiency, high performance modules essential for any successful project," said Dr Shawn Qu, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. "The project makes an important contribution toward the development of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Solar energy generates green energy and is a driver for the creation of qualified jobs in German cities and communities. Wherever PV plants are built, the local economy will also benefit."
