DEGER equips new solar park in Greece

CET Technology on board as German installation partner

Horb a.N., 28. January 2013. A 100 kilowatt solar park near the Greek city of Komotini has started operating. It is equipped with 10 DEGERtraker 9000NT tracking systems. DEGER is world market leader in the field of solar tracking systems and its technology is being used in 51 countries.

Solar energy is among the most important resources in Greece. Therefore, it is not surprising that photovoltaic energy is a source of hope for the Peleponnese peninsula in these times of economic depression. The solar park, which started operation near the city of Komotini in Eastern Greece, is now a small sign of hope for better times ahead.

The customer is the Technomechaniki Komotini company and the DEGERtraker were delivered by the CET Technology company located in Höchstadt near Nuremberg. Additionally, CET supported the on-site technicians during the installation. CET managing director Lothar Seifert: "Komotini is our first project with DEGER in Greece. Two further solar parks of this scale have already been approved. They will be built as soon as the funds have been released. We will use DEGERtrakers there, too."

It is proven that the DEGER MLD* tracking technology is the most efficient technology worldwide for producing solar energy. The operators estimate that with the yields which can be achieved and the generated feed in tariffs, their investments will be amortised within 5 years at the latest.

Lothar Seifert: "We are very satisfied with the technology developed and supplied by DEGER. The price-performance ratio is excellent. The systems are robust, reliable, easy to install and technically up-to-date. We will continue to work with these systems in the future."

About CET Technology (
CET Technology GmbH is specialised on systems in the field of photovoltaic and wind power. Besides planning and installing PV systems, the company located in Höchstadt produces independent island systems for power supply and lighting. The systems are exported outside of Europe, among others to Afghanistan, Columbia and Iran.

About DEGER (
DEGER is the leading manufacturer with the globally largest product portfolio for single and dual axis solar tracking systems. Its market position is based on the unique, patented "Maximum Light Detection" - or MLD technology, developed by Artur Deger. It provides the possibility of increasing the yield of solar power plants by using an "intelligent" control. The MLD-sensor thereby always aligns the solar modules with the energetically most potent point in the sky. This way MLD-guided solar systems achieve on average a 45 percent higher yield than fixed systems – in peaks this value is even considerably higher. With more than 50,000 systems installed in 51 countries, DEGER is world market and technology leader. The enterprise offers all solutions of relevance for the product – from development and planning to production and sales right up to maintenance and repair.
