Mochau, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Signet Solar and BSC-Solar are jointly developing a solar power plant in the Czech Republic, located in the Blížkovice region near the Austrian border.
Signet Solar will supply single junction silicon thin film solar photovoltaic modules totaling 1.8 megawatts (MW) for the project. The installation of the solar farm is set to start by end of October, 2009.
BSC-Solar will construct the project on five hectares of land using an estimated 20,000 single junction silicon thin film modules. The solar farm will be completed and connected to the grid by the end of the year 2009, and will generate approximately 2.4 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity annually.
“This order is a testament to the growing acceptance of Signet Solar’s thin film photovoltaic modules in the European market,” said Gunter Ziegenbalg, managing director of Signet Solar GmbH. “In the future, solar energy in the Czech Republic will play an increasingly important role. We are pleased by this supply agreement with the BSC Solar Group, one of the leading solar photovoltaic project developers in the Czech market, and it will further strengthen and expand our market position in the Czech Republic.”
