Germany's largest solar PV thin-film roof inaugurated

Germany’s largest solar photovoltaic (PV) plant using thin-film technology on a pitched roof has been inaugurated in Moers, near Duisburg, Germany.

The system provider Solaxis GmbH and Solardach GmbH have jointly developed a solar PV thin-film power plant on the roof of Riedel Recycling.

The solar modules have a total output of 837 kW. More than 10,000 cadmium-telluride solar modules from First Solar cover the entire southern roof of the former coal mixing hall in Moers.

Sputnik’s engineers combined solar modules of the same inclination and connected them to four different SolarMax inverters with nominal outputs of 300 kW (two devices), 100 kW and 30 kW.
