Roof-top plant on Hamburg-Moorburg power station

Solar roof for coal store

Roof systems can pose very special challenges, too: In early 2019, MKG installed a PV-system for Vattenfall on the dome roof of the Hamburg-Moorburg cogeneration plant.

Two GMS® MAX solar parks in the Netherlands

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.

New projects for 750 kW solar plants

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.

Solar park Veendam (NL)

Solar park Veendam (NL)

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.

Solar park Saidabad, Iran

Power from the desert

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.

Solar park Delfzijl (NL)

30 MWp solar park Delfzijl (NL)

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.

Solar park Herzogenrath (D)

Slope parallel installations

In late 2016, MKG erected a solar plant in a discontinued extraction site of a quarry company. Due to the strong inclination up to 20° we used a slope parallel construction design.

Festive construction inauguration in Hamada

Start of Construction at Hamada II (JP)

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.

The climbing tower was made possible by many donations from Öhringen

Opening signal for Laga2016

During the next few months, the city of Öhringen will be expecting many thousands of visitors to the Landesgartenschau (State Garden Show) to be held there under the motto ”The Limes is blossoming”. MKG also took part in the preparations, so that the opening of the „Laga” could start as scheduled on 22 April.

Solar park Hokkaido (JP)

Solar park Hokkaido (JP)

We build outdoors – even in winter: the first solar park of the year 2016 has just been built in Japan. A particular challenge in the process was the heavy snowfall.

Solar park Miyakojima (JP)

Solar park Miyakojima (JP)

The island of Miyakojima is not only a sunbathed paradise in the sea: A solar park in an extraordinary location overlooking the beach and the turquoise-blue sea has also been powering it since 2015.
