Groundbreaking in the Hardthausen forest

Work starts in the Hardthausen forest

Heilbronn-based ZEAG has been operating Baden-Württemberg’s largest and most powerful wind farm in the Hardthausen forest since 2015. Now, the plant will be supplemented by a solar park. With MKG Göbel, ZEAG and Bürgerenergiegenossenschaft Widdern have found a competent partner right in their region.

Solar park Lauperath (D)

Solar park Lauperath

The Lauperath field installation consists of two sections and is built in slope parallel construction.

Solar park Bavelse Berg (NL)

Solar park Bavelse Berg

On a former landfill site east of Breda (NL), a large solar park is being built which will supply electricity for approx. 13,000 households after completion in spring 2021.

Solar park Lelystad I + II (NL)

Solar park Lelystad I + II

After installing solar park project “Lelystad I” with approx. 28 MWp in 2019 we are near to completion of “Lelystad II” with a power of approx. 12.7 MWp for our customer Goldbeck Solar GmbH.

GMS® DOUBLE plant at Büren

New approaches with GMS® DOUBLE

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.

Solar park Schornhof (D)

Construction start for 110 MWp solar park

One of Germany’s largest solar plants is currently under construction: the Schornhof solar park located near Berg im Gau, southwest of Ingolstadt.

Roof-top systems, Plauen (D)

Roof-top systems in Plauen (D)

In March 2019, we implemented a whole series of photovoltaic roof systems in Plauen, in the beautiful Free State of Saxony.

Solar park Eemshaven (NL)

Eemshaven: gas and solar energy

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.

Solar park Lelystad (NL)

Lelystad: fully packed with GMS® MAX

During August this year, we completed another large solar park in Lelystad, not far from Amsterdam in the Netherlands. This plant is oriented from east to west and has an extremely close row spacing.

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.

Solar park Zierikzee, NL

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.

Solar park Helbra during construction

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.

Roof-top system Veghel (NL)

Major contract: roof-tops in the Netherlands

On 14 March 2016, the MKG Team started the construction of a 1,280 KWp-power output photovoltaic power plant on the roof of a mid-sized enterprise in Veghel (NL). Despite the large surface area to be covered, the solar power plant could be completed within three weeks.
