28MW in just seven weeks

While the Indians are doing it on a large scale, the Germans are doing it fast.

The 28MW solar park in Amsdorf, central Germany, was built on 55 hectares of former opencast mines and slag heaps, and took less than seven weeks to finish from the time construction commenced, with energy first being generated on 20 April 2012.

The €50 million solar park, owned by GERO Solarpark GmbH, was planned and developed by joint partners Getec Green Energy AG and the Romonta Group, with Q.CELLS as the system integrator.

The park is the latest in a series of multi-megawatt solar parks installed by Q.CELLS, which has now installed over 548 megawatts of photovoltaics in numerous solar parks.
