Germany’s BayWa r.e. renewable energy GmbH said today it has finalised the construction of a 10-MWp solar park in Bavaria that will be part of a hybrid power complex.
The photovoltaic (PV) plant was installed on behalf of a company that manages the property accommodating the installation, located north of Bayreuth. Germany-based Renerco plan consult also took part in the project by providing insight for the design and planning and the development of its interconnection.
The solar park is tied to the grid of a 24-MW wind farm that was built back in 2013, also with the participation of BayWa r.e. in the project.
The renewables unit of German diversified group BayWa AG (ETR:BYW6) also noted that the “positive experiences” from the scheme have triggered the idea of some additional extensions to the solar farm by up to 22 MWp. The company’s project manager Jan-Gerd Bayerkohler pointed out, however, certain challenges that occurred during the implementation of the PV scheme due to the limited experience with such projects as solar-wind hybrid developments are not that common in Germany.
