KRAFTWERK Renewable Power Solutions will begin repowering PV systems in various locations in Germany by replacing solar panels that have high performance degradation.
The existing thin film PV modules have lost more than 30% of their overall power performance over the years and are being replaced with polycrystalline modules from LUXRA. Andreas Kaiser, KRAFTWERK’S Project Manager states, “The challenge we faced was to design a system upgrade as cost-efficient as possible to remain profitable for the investor” and adds, “Through careful cost planning and consideration we achieved an attractive business case and expect more repowering projects to follow in the future.”
A private investor has commissioned KRAFTWERK to upgrade rooftop PV installations totalling 406 kWp on three buildings.
Technical project information:
Locations: Frankfurt, Hanau, Hannover
System type: Grid-connected, rooftop
Components: LUXRA polycrystalline
Completion date: 1st quarter 2016
