Lieberose Photovoltaic Park
The solar park love rose on the former military training area in the municipality Turnow- Preilack in Brandenburg is one of the largest photovoltaic power plants in the world and was at the time of commissioning with a nominal peak power of 52,790 kW, the largest solar power plant in Germany. It was realized by the company juwi in cooperation with the thin-film module manufacturer First Solar.
The park covers an area of 162 acres ( 1.62 km ² = ) and consists of 700,000 thin-film modules. These solar factory in Frankfurt / Oder were mainly produced at the ridge. The module area is approximately 500,000 square meters. Hold units in the building was the Leichtmetallbau Schletter GmbH from Bavaria.
Due to the long-standing use as a military training area of the site was contaminated by munitions residues. For the construction of the solar park love Rose the surface of the ammunition was freed and thus stood after the project again as usable space.
The financing of the investment costs of about 160 million euro was made at 20 percent equity and 80 percent by debt.
The solar power plant includes 700,000 thin-film modules of type First Solar FS 272-277 with an efficiency of about 10% and 38 inverters from SMA Solar Technology. It produces 52 gigawatt hours per year (equivalent to the annual needs of about 15,000 households ). This corresponds mathematically to an average power of about 6 MW in 8760 years operating hours. It saves around 35,000 tonnes of CO2 per year. This is the same amount of CO2 that can be stored in an area of approximately 27 square kilometers in a year an average German forest. The solar park will remain on schedule for at least 20 years at the network.
The electrical energy generated is fed into the power grid of Envia. The compensation amounts to € 0.3194 per kWh.
On 20 August 2009 the grand opening of the solar park took place, to which the Minister President of Brandenburg Matthias Platzeck and the then Federal Minister of Transport were on site.
