Masdar PV commissioned the largest solar park in Thuringia, Germany, in record time

Masdar PV, an innovative manufacturer of thin-film photovoltaic products, has completed the largest solar power plant in Gotha, State of Thuringia within less than two months. The solar park has, therefore, completed all the conditions for obtaining the EEG feed-in tariffs of 2011.

On a former military property, more than 50,000 solar panels will provide a nominal output of 11.7 MWp for the local power grid. With an annual energy production of 10.5 million kilowatt hours, the installation will produce enough power to supply around 2,500 four-person households. In addition, this project will enable Masdar PV to save approximately 9,300 tons of CO2 emissions annually, the equivalent of the emissions of more than 4,000 medium-sized cars.

In the new solar park, a mixture of Masdar PV?s state of the art dual-junction micromorph and established amorphous modules will operate. The application of 17,320 micromorph full size modules was especially responsible for the fast and efficient installation of the park. The Gotha project also confirms Masdar PV?s commitment to provide sustainable energy in the State of Thuringia.


The solar power plant is designed and constructed by UAE based system integrator Enviromena Power Systems, who previously collaborated with Masdar on a variety of photovoltaic projects including a 10 MW solar power farm installed in 2009 at Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Aside from Masdar PV?s solar modules, the plant incorporates technology from solar inverter manufacturer SMA, and solar racking manufacturers Krinner and PUK. Before end of 2011 Enviromena performed extensive commissioning tests, which verified the proper function of the modules.
