On January 23rd, 2013, Conergy AG (Hamburg, Germany) announced that it has completed three solar photovoltaic (PV) parks in Greece totaling 1.5 megawatts (MW) for the solar companies Diasindesi SA and Photovoltaika Karditsa Ltd.

Conergy acted as main contractor for the first two solar projects each with a generation capacity of 500 kilowatts (kW) in Livadia in the province of Viotia.


Over 6,200 Conergy P Series modules installed

Conergy was responsible for the planning and engineering, supply of the system components and construction of both power plants on an area of around 120,000 square meters.

For the third 500 kW solar project in Karditsa, Conergy supplied the solar components. The three projects used over 6,200 Conergy P Series modules.


2.2 million kWh of solar power per year

The solar installation will produce 2.2 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of solar power per year, which will be fed into the grid by 51 inverters.

The installations supply electricity to over 560 households, while avoiding the production of more than 1,100 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year.

"The economic situation in Greece is still very difficult," Conergy Greece Managing Director Dr. Stefanos Melissopoulos stated.

"However, in 2012 we have proven that we can act very successfully in the Greek market, working closely with our strong network of partners. By doing so, we can still get things moving, even in these tough times. A solar power plant is one of the safest investments in our country, and combined with the growing importance of environmental issues, we feel we can be optimistic about the future of our industry."
