Post date: 16/12/2020 - 10:37
Delta Electronics Europe BV is providing its high-efficiency PV string inverters M70A series to the solar company Anumar, an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services provider, which is building the »Solarpark Schornhof« project, currently the largest ground-mounted solar park in Southern Germany. The project has an installed capacity of 120 MW.
In total, Delta will provide approximately 1,500 inverters required to fulfill the site's needs, of which approximately one third have been deployed at the solar park to date. The first panels of about 70 MW recently went in operation and were connected to the grid. The facility is expected to generate 110 million kWh of electricity every year.
The project, located in the Neuburg-Schrobenhausen district to the southwest of Ingolstadt, is scheduled for completion by the end of the first quarter of 2021. It is financed based on 90 MW power purchase agreements (PPA) so far.
Only half of the 150-hectare site will be covered with solar modules. The remaining 70 hectares will be transformed to encourage biodiversity by the operator. This part of the project entails planting some 50,000 new shrubs and trees, with the existing perimeter woods being retained.
