Sputnik Engineering AG and system supplier Sunflow have formally dedicated a 1 MW solar plant located on former NATO bunkers in Markt Taschendorf, Germany. The project features 27 inverters made by Sputnik, 5,700 solar modules and a tracking system developed by Sunflow that the company says can boost the system's yield by up to 30%.
‘We have developed this system in cooperation with the Amberg-Weiden University especially for industrial roofs,’ notes Sunflow CEO Stephan Ri§. ‘In the case of these roofs, you have to take into account their varying static and design characteristics. Because the roofs are very light, they cannot support heavy loads. Moreover, the sun sail must not be too large, so that it will not be damaged by the wind.’
