Photovoltaics is one of the key technologies in the field of renewable energies. In a recent report, WDR portrays – as a representative of the entire PV sector – an innovative Agri-PV system from MKG Göbel.
Innovative and with vision, entrepreneurs from Büren have invested in two greenhouses with dual use. The roofs of the constructions are covered with translucent solar modules, which protect the plants from the hail and from drying out – and at the same time produce green electricity.
In September 2018, we already completed an outdoor plant in the north-east of the Netherlands. As the plant is located on the site of a gas-fired power station, high health and safety requirements had to be observed.
In 2018 MKG Göbel has built two more large solar parks in the Netherlands. Both plants are installed in an east-west direction and have an extremely close row spacing – this is where the GMS® max mounting system from MKG Göbel can fully show its advantages.
Since the last reform of the german Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz (EEG), new solar plants have to take part at a public tendering in order to get power remuneration from the state. This applies to plants from 750 kWp upwards, and so we see more and more plants below this threshold. MKG Göbel also benefits from this trend: At the beginning of 2018 the company is building several 750 kWp plants in Helbra, Wanzleben, Biburg and other locations.
At the beginning of 2018, the MKG team put into operation a greenfield power plant in Veendam, located directly at the Wildervanck canal. The in-time finalisation of the project was by no means guaranteed: Water and mud created unfavourable conditions for both, men and machines.
Surrounded by a spectacular scenery, MKG recently implemented a solar park project at Saidabad, Iran. In this country we had to face special demands concerning planning, export permits and conditions of the ground.
In the very northeast of the Netherlands, MKG completed one of the largest projects of the company’s history: On a site below sea level, more than 100.000 solar modules have been installed in just 20 weeks. MKG’s engineers faced the challenges of the peaty soil with a special, yet economic foundation, by which the substructure gains a secure hold in the soft ground.
