Clenergy’s General Manager Daniel Ruoss said “the solar farm project will employ around 50 people during construction and Clenergy has appointed GP Joule for the engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) of the solar farm and Energiequelle for the HV EPC works. Clenergy has issued to both contractors NTP and we’re collaborating closely with local stakeholders to maximise the benefits for the region and communities. Greentech is contracted as O&M Service Provider taking over the site after COD is reached.

A big thank you goes to our local team in our Hamburg office, who succeeded to turn a disused mining site into a perfect site for solar electricity generation, allowing upon completion nearly 19,000 local homes to be powered by sustainable electricity from our solar farm. This solar farm will become a milestone project in Germany; with over 1,600 million tonnes of soil & sand moved during the civil work stage and the connection 25km from the site in Lutheran.
