The solar park consists of two separate areas, one covering 9 hectares with a capacity of 4.6 MWp, the second covering 11 hectares with a capacity of 6.4 MWp.
Approximately 50,000 crystalline solar modules have been installed and the solar energy systems represent an investment of approximately € 30 million.
The solar park will now be officially connected to the network operated by the energy provider EnBW Regional.
Jörg Eßer, Managing Director of the MCG Management Capital Group, says: “The Ahorn solar park is the latest addition to our investment portfolio which focuses on solar energy systems. Since 2007, we have invested a total of approximately €400m in solar energy projects since we believe that these sustainable investments represent both high-yield as well as low-risk capital expenditure.”
“For Q-Cells, the Ahorn solar park plants are reference projects for medium-sized photovoltaic systems in commercial and industrial applications. In order to expand this segment, we have been extending our product portfolio since the start of 2010 as part of our strategic realignment,” adds Winfried Owtscharenko, Managing Director of Q-Cells International GmbH for the Commercial & Industrial systems.
