Phoenix Solar will build three European photovoltaic power plants with a maximum output of about 21MW for KGAL. The plants include a 15.8MW solar power plant in Moos in Germany and two solar parks with generating capacity of 2.3MW and 2.7MW in the regions of Molise and Latium in Italy.<

Phoenix Solar will build three European photovoltaic power plants with a maximum output of about 21MW for KGAL.

The plants include a 15.8MW solar power plant in Moos in Germany and two solar parks with generating capacity of 2.3MW and 2.7MW in the regions of Molise and Latium in Italy.

Work has begun at the German solar project where approximately 160,000 thin-film modules from different manufacturers will be used.

The park will be connected to the high-voltage grid of EnBW and is expected to come online in June 2010.

Work on the two Italian projects has already begun and Phoenix Solar’s own crystalline PHX modules will be used for both the solar parks that are due to be connected to the grid by the end of June 2010.

Phoenix Solar will develop the power plants as a general contractor and is responsible for maintenance and operation of the plants.

The three new plants are part of a 2007 framework agreement between Phoenix Solar and KGAL, which aims to build 17 solar plants in Germany, Spain and Italy between 2009 and 2012.
