The ground-breaking ceremony for the Balder 01 project took place on 2 July 2020, and the new solar plant in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is due to be completed and connected to the grid in the next six months. For GOLDBECK SOLAR, the Zietlitz solar park is the largest project in Germany with subsidies.

Conversion of former gravel pit for solar park

 Last week the construction of the Zietlitz solar park in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern started. Not only those involved in the project from GOLDBECK SOLAR were present, but also those responsible from the clients WEMAG and SENTUS. “As the largest tendering project under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), Zietlitz is naturally something special for us,” says GOLDBECK SOLAR Managing Director Tobias Schüssler. “But the location of the new solar park is certainly much more exciting. It is being built in a former gravel and sand mine. The area will thus be converted to a new use in the sense of the energy turnaround”.

Solarpark Zietlitz produces green electricity for up to 16,000 households

 At the end of the six-month construction period, the new Balder 01 solar park will have a capacity of 76 MW. This results in an annual yield of just over 72,000 MWh and a CO2 saving of 37,000 tonnes. “With the Zietlitz solar park, up to 16,000 households of four people each can be supplied with green solar power per year,” says Tobias Schüssler. “This is enormous for the region around Zietlitz.”

This performance is achieved with modules of the SunTech brand and inverters from SMA Zentral. The feed-in will take place according to the tariff from the beginning of 2021, when the solar park will be connected to the public power grid after its planned completion.
