Prague, Czech Republic — The Conergy Group has started construction on its first megawatt solar park in the Czech Republic. The company is building a 1.1-megawatt (MW) power plant using its own technology near the city of Louny, 80 km northwest of Prague.
Conergy said that it plans to complete the plant as early as July. Once completed, the plant will be the largest solar installation in Louny and the surrounding area. The plant includes 5,112 Conergy PowerPlus solar modules and 71 Conergy IPG-T 15 inverters. The modules are attached to Conergy’s SolarLinea mounting system, which has been specially developed for open spaces.
“We’re celebrating a double premiere with the Louny solar park,” said Ales Spacil, the head of Conergy’s Czech division. Not only is Louny the first large-scale plant being built in the Czech Republic that is completely equipped with Conergy’s own system technology. It is also the first big project to employ in large numbers our new Conergy IPG-T model inverters – available only since the beginning of April. With the three-phase, grid-connected devices we were able to plan more flexibly locally. Its excellent collector efficiency will also provide the highest yields in the plant when completed.”
