World's biggest photovoltaic power system

The juwi group has received building approval for the world's biggest photovoltaic power system. At a former military air base to the east of Leipzig, juwi is installing a 40-megawatt solar power system using state-ofthe- art thin-film technology, to be finished by the end of 2009. The installation in the Muldentalkreis district in the state of Saxony in eastern Germany will be built on half of the location's 220 hectares in the townships of Brandis and Bennewitz. The area is about one kilometre wide and approximately two kilometres long. It takes more than an hour to walk around it.

First Solar is supplying the modules for the Waldpolenz solar park. Most of the approximately 550,000 modules will be produced in the German town of Frankfurt on Oder.
