[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Having already closed a contract in mid-October for the construction of a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant using First Solar’s thin-film modules, Germany’s Phonix SonnenStrom received another large order last week — this time from mainfrankenSolar 4 GmbH & Co. KG, a company based in Veitshoechheim, Germany. The solar electricity plant will generate a peak power output of 1.02 MW with around 16,968 solar modules. The total investment volume comes to approximately EUR 4.5 million (USD$ 5.3 million). Due to the tight schedule — the plant is to be completed by the end of the year ready to feed into the grid –construction work on the green field plant has already begun. The solar electricity system is to be built in Burgbernheim in the District of Buchheim near Wuerzburg on a surface area of around 40,000 square meters. The Buchheim green field plant will fully comply with the criteria laid down by the Naturschutzbund Deutschland e.V. (NABU is a German association for the conservation of nature) and the Unternehmensvereinigung Solarindustrie e.V. (UVS) for green field sites that are compatible with nature.
