Opening ceremony for 50 MW project in Akadyr

Goldbeck Solar opens another solar project in Kazakhstan. With the new Akadyr power plant, Goldbeck Solar has completed another project in Kazakhstan and installed a total of 150 MWp. This makes Goldbeck Solar the market leader for ground-mounted plants in Kazakhstan. At yesterday’s opening ceremony, the solar park was officially connected to the grid. Well-known personalities from politics and the energy sector were invited as guests.

Short construction time despite challenges

This was Goldbeck Solar’s second own project in Kazakhstan. Despite the various challenges, the EPC company from Hirschberg therefore felt well prepared for factors such as climate, long transport routes and high bureaucratic hurdles. “Thanks to our experience in the Kazakh market, we knew about the special features here,” explains Raphael Beringer, project manager at Goldbeck Solar. “This was of particular benefit to us when it came to logistics and importing the components. But of course we were also able to better assess the climatic conditions and plan accordingly”.

One of the biggest challenges for the Akadyr project was certainly the weather conditions – not only for the installation itself, but also for choosing the right components. Not all manufacturers provide products that can withstand the harsh winter temperatures of around -40 degrees Celsius, which is why only high-quality parts were considered for the project. And there were also special conditions to consider during the planning phase. For example, the groundwater frozen in winter required a deeper foundation of the posts of the substructure.

Based on its experience, Goldbeck Solar was able to complete the construction project in just three months. The erected transformer station required most of the time, the PV park itself was even erected in just 2.5 months. The detailed planning and good cooperation with the local partner companies ensured that all parts were available at the right time and could be installed.

Sustainability thanks to green energy

The construction of the solar plant offers several advantages for the city of Akadyr. On the one hand the project created jobs for people from the surrounding area, on the other hand the approximately 150,000 modules with an annual energy production of 82,000 MWh now supply several thousand households in and around Akadyr with green energy. This will save around 500,000 tons of CO2 over the next 15 years. Joachim Goldbeck, Managing Director of Goldbeck Solar, adds: “Power Plant Akadyr is an important step in the right direction, especially with regard to sustainability. With green energy from solar power, immense savings in CO2 emissions can be achieved, which can do something good for the environment in the long term.”.
