September 27 (Renewables Now) - German renewable energy company Murphy&Spitz Green Energy AG has put into operation a 12.75-MWp agrivoltaic plant in Bavaria which supplies electricity to a regional energy company under a medium-term off-take deal at a fixed price.
Located in the district of Weissenburg-Gunzenhausen, in Middle Franconia, the solar park generated its first power in June, Murphy&Spitz said on Monday.
The Meinheim plant is designed as an agri-PV system with solar modules mounted on racks with a height of between two and four metres to allow the use of the land for agricultural purposes.
Murphy&Spitz noted that the realisation of the project was not hampered by supply chain disruptions as the delivery of the solar modules, frames and other components took place with little or no delay.
The commissioning of the park has boosted the company's portfolio to 32.9 MWp. Bonn-based Murphy&Spitz Green Energy AG is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Murphy&Spitz Green Capital AG. The company acquires, develops and operates large-scale renewable energy plants.
