September 20 (Renewables Now) - German solar installer and power plant operator Anumar Solar GmbH has put into operation the 120-MWp Schornhof solar park located near the Bavarian city of Ingolstadt and will sell the bulk of the electricity from the facility to Norwegian renewable energy producer Statkraft AS under two power purchase agreements (PPAs).

The plant, which Anumar claims to be the largest solar park in southern Germany, features about 350,000 solar modules installed on an area of 140 hectares (345.9 acres) and will produce 110 GWh of electricity, saving 76,800 tonnes of carbon emissions annually.

About 90 MW of the electricity generated by the Schornhof solar park will be sold to Statkraft AS under two long-term PPAs.

The realisation of the project, whose construction started in the spring of 2020, cost a total investment of about EUR 60 million (USD 70.68m).

Ingolstadt-based Anumar plans to expand the solar plant next year, adding 60 MWp in capacity on an area of 60 hectares. The expansion plan has been already approved by the local council of the Bavarian municipality of Berg im Gau where the park is located.

Anumar will continue to operate the plant.
