Q-Cells Building Europe's Largest Solar Park

Q-Cells has announced that it is building what it claims is Europe's largest solar park in Brandenburg-Briest, Germany. When completed the park will have a capacity of 91 MW. In addition, two sub-projects, Brandenburg-Briest West and Brandenburg-Briest Ost, are under construction and will have a total capacity of 60 MW.

Having signed investment contracts with Hamburg investment company LUXCARA and Berlin’s MCG Group, Q-Cells is building the park, with an area of 200 hectares (494 acres), on the site of a former military base.

LUXCARA has purchased the two sub-projects, while MCG has purchased another sub-project with a capacity of around 31 MW, which has been under construction in the Briest-Havelsee district since mid-October.

Q-Cells says it will complete all three solar parks by the end of 2011, in a construction time of eight weeks.
