- Agreement for construction of solar projects with total capacity of 200 MWp signed between AMPYR Solar Europe (ASE) and BELECTRIC
- Solar farms to be set up in Brandenburg are developed by ASE, with EPC works to be executed by BELECTRIC
- BELECTRIC and AMPYR Energy’s Global Centre of Excellence New Delhi to collaborate on engineering design and supply chain management for these projects
Kolitzheim (Germany) / London (United Kingdom) – AMPYR Solar Europe (ASE) and BELECTRIC agree to install a pipeline of more than 200 megawatts (MW) of solar capacity in Germany. The first power plants to be constructed are located in Brandenburg, Germany.
AMPYR and BELECTRIC signed a framework agreement to construct a pipeline of several large-scale projects in Germany within the next two years.
“We are pleased to have a strong partner like BELECTRIC who brings in extensive experience in large-scale solar plant construction, operations & maintenance. We are particularly excited about collaboration in engineering and supply chain management within teams at BELECTRIC and AMPYR’s Global Technical Centre (AMPYRTech), to bring in the latest solar PV technology, while at the same time navigating the supply chain volatility“, says Tarun Agrawal, Partner at AGP Group (AMPYR Energy).
Two of the solar farms to be constructed are located in Brandenburg. The largest solar farm will have an installed capacity of 85 MWp. The second plant will consist of six sub areas which together make for a total capacity of 65 MWp. This project is especially challenging as a 25 km long line as well as a substation need to be built. Construction works for the two solar farms are expected to begin by the end of the year 2022.
Dr. Thorsten Blanke, CEO of BELECTRIC GmbH, explains: “Our framework agreement with AMPYR is a great basis to implement further German projects in the future. We are delighted to expand our collaboration.”
AMPYR Solar Europe brings together AGP’s experience in developing large-scale renewable power projects, Hartree’s cutting edge power trading analytics and zero carbon solutions with NaGa’s in-depth local knowledge and land development prowess. Combining these complementary skills will speed up the build out of solar capacity and offers an attractive opportunity for institutional investors to deploy in excess of €1 billion of capital and generate a reliable, long-term income.
