Hamburg, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Meridian Neue Energien GmbH and BP Solar Deutschland GmbH have signed a 5-megawatt contract for module supplies. The BP Solar will be allocated to five rooftop projects, which are already in the construction phase and are to start operation in August this year.
Four of the solar electricity systems are to be installed on agricultural buildings in the new federal states. The fifth project to use the modules from BP will be built on a large roof of the Michelin tire factory in Bad Kreuznach. With the current projects, Meridian Neue Energien continues its business model that includes the decontamination of roofs covered with asbestos.
“Our strategic aim is to continuously expand the portfolio of self projected photovoltaic systems and in this way to develop in the long term into a renewable energy provider. As solar company with decades-long experience and a large product portfolio, BP Solar is an optimal cooperation partner for this long-term plan,” said Henry Bolz, managing director of Meridian Neue Energien.
