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.
At the Intersolar fair trade in Munich (June 22 – 24), MKG was represented on a spacious fair ground. After a strenuous period of preparation, our team was happy about the great interest of our visitors: Beside successful presentations and new contacts, many of our custumers came to see our latest developments.
For the occasion of the Intersolar 2016 trade exhibition, MKG has announced a new mounting system: GMS max offers maximum efficiency for mega solar parks with intense space utilisation which thereby causes self-shadowing.
At the beginning of June, MKG technicians installed in only two days a 65 kWp roof-mounted PV-power plant at a newly built car-wash at the Globus market in Saarlouis. At the opening on 30 June 2016, the car-wash was powered by 80%.with self-generated electricity.
Second IT, a PC-specialist company, wanted a modern, personalized gate in their fresh green corporate colour for their store in Schwäbisch Hall. That was not a problem for the MKG team, as it could gladly attend to such special requirements.
The inauguration ceremony with a traditional blessing of MKG’s next building site took place in Hamada, on Japan’s west coast. The ceremony, which took place according to Japanese customs and traditions, was a truly high-profile event appropriate for the significance of the solar park Hamada.
