Spanish-British co-operation: Conergy supplies modules for 5MW solar power plant

5.3 million kilowatt hours of clean solar energy for 3,000 households in Cornwall

Hamburg / Madrid, 26 July 2012 – Just a few months after the 5.3 megawatt large-scale power plant in Murcia was connected to the grid, Conergy's long-standing Spanish partner Solaer has once again turned to the system supplier's quality and experience to help it take the plunge in the UK market. For its first major 5 megawatt project in the UK, the Spanish company has installed more than 21,000 Conergy PH solar modules. The solar power plant is located in the village of Eastcott near Bude in Cornwall, and it will produce around 5.3 million kilowatt hours of solar power each year – enough to supply more than half the population of the Bude area with environmentally sound electricity. At the same time, the solar park will prevent more than 4 million pounds of harmful CO2 emissions.


This project is a great example of how cross-border solar partnerships can really work," says Luis Jimenez Gutierrez, Managing Director of Conergy Spain. "We are delighted that our long-time partners Solaer have relied on our expertise to assist them in entering the UK market and that our partnership is moving forward so successfully. Conergy has been active in the UK market for some years and has already installed some large-scale plants, including a 5 megawatt installation in Hawton that at the time was Britain's biggest solar park."

Ignacio Arganza, Managing Director of Solaer, adds: "Conergy has in-depth knowledge of the UK solar market. This knowhow and our excellent experience of working with Conergy products were deciding factors for us. It's good to have Conergy as an experienced partner and expert at our side on whom we can rely on 100% at all times – especially when we're working on this important first project in a new market."

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
