The meeco Group contracted 200 kW rooftop projects in Greece

Installations to be connected to the grid by end of Q1 2012

SunCarrier Services Hellas S.A., the fully owned Greek subsidiary of the Swiss-based meeco Group has recently contracted two new roof turnkey PV projects. The projects are located in the municipality of Aspropyrgos, Attica with a nominal capacity of 100 kWp each.


George Kitoudis, Director of SunCarrier Services Hellas S.A. explains: "The projects will utilize 850 units 235Wp modules of BYD, as well as six units KACO Powador 39.0 TL3 inverters. The parks are estimated to yield a total of 280.000 kWh of energy produced per year, which amounts to yearly savings of approximately 180 tons in CO2 emissions.

The construction will be executed by THRICON Energy Co. The connection to the grid is expected by the end of the first quarter 2012

Active in the Greek PV market since late 2008, The meeco Group's subsidiary has been continuously adding projects to the Group's portfolio.

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
