Solarpraxis Engineering GmbH launched

Solarpraxis AG creates new subsidiary

Berlin, January 16, 2014. New energy service provider Solarpraxis Engineering GmbH was launched on January 1, 2014. The former engineering division of Berlin-based Solarpraxis AG, a knowledge service provider for renewable energy, has now begun trading as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company. Its CEO is Felix Eichhorn, who has been a prominent figure in the solar industry for ten years through his work at firms including thin-film module manufacturer Soltecture and systems wholesaler SEN Solare Energiesysteme Nord. By becoming an autonomous spin-off of the Solarpraxis group, the subsidiary is able to react even more swiftly to the rapidly changing market conditions in the solar industry. At the same time, the engineering division – which has grown continuously in recent years – should consequently be better able to position itself in the market under its own brand.

Solarpraxis's engineering division has advised manufacturers, wholesalers, planners, investors and system constructors on photovoltaics, solar thermal technology, combined heat and power plants, heat pumps, pellets and energy efficiency for over 15 years. "We are continuing to provide both our longstanding industrial clients and new customers with high quality services through our reliable team," explains CEO Felix Eichhorn. "The new structure allows us to create specialist teams that are even better suited to each individual project. This means that we are able to react with greater flexibility to our clients' wishes and implement them with the best results."

"The products and services provided by Solarpraxis's engineers have played a role in driving forward development in the solar industry for many years," underlined Solarpraxis AG Chairman Karl-Heinz Remmers. "In our capacities both as expert consultants and planners, we have been involved with photovoltaic installations boasting a total output of over three gigawatt peak. This transition from a division to an autonomous subsidiary is therefore an important and logical step in guaranteeing the best possible service for our clients."

Solarpraxis Engineering GmbH comprises a team of 16 engineers offering comprehensive solutions for renewable energy and energy efficiency in the fields of system planning, technical marketing, expert reports and plant operation. Within the scope of system planning, the team implements all steps required to produce the fully finished system – from DC/AC planning, through supervising construction to final quality controls. Technical marketing involves developing system solutions such as planning software and interactive assembly instructions. In addition, the team develops and writes documents such as planning manuals in line with the standards and legislations relevant to the manufacturing industry. In their capacity as white-listed, TV-certified consultants, the Solarpraxis engineers compile expert reports for banks, insurers, investors and operators. These include assessments of yield, glare, damage and direct/self-consumption, as well as covering handover inspections and declarations of conformity. Plant operation has also recently been added to the portfolio as a result of increased market demand. This service is primarily intended for operators of ground-mounted PV systems.

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?
