EPC built largest solar project in Germany The Ganzlin Solar Park

Solarpark Ganzlin

From stone to sun: Germany's largest solar project was being built on the 71-hectare site of a gravel pit, in accordance with 2013 calculations. The impressive solar park in Ganzlin, Ludwigslust-Parchim district, generates an output of 65 MW following a construction period of only eight months. This is enough to supply around 16,500 households with CO2-free electricity. GP JOULE, as the general contractor, was responsible for the entire planning process, from the selection and procurement of components, the awarding of contracts to service providers to the complete construction of the park.

Where in autumn 2019 a large crater still bore witness to the work of the gravel excavators, are placed a total of 165,000 modules today. Meik Georg Gessner, head of EPC plant construction at GP JOULE attests that the Ganzlin solar park makes maximum use of the area. And even though the schedule was tight, he and his employees accepted the project as a sporty challenge. "This can be achieved with good coordination between the contract work sections," Gessner says and he can draw on years of experience.

Passionate partners for patent solutions

This expertise was also one of the reasons for awarding the contract for the client and initiator of the Ganzlin solar park, the company Clenergy Global Projects Hamburg. "It wasn’t the price that is decisive for us", says Daniel Ruoss, Vice President of the Clenergy Group and Managing Director of Clenergy Global Projects Germany. "Instead we were convinced not only by the experience but also by the high level of competence. GP JOULE always thinks in a solution-oriented manner and has accompanied our different changes of direction constructively and purposefully". The careful selection of subcontractors also played an important role. "We chose regional partners where possible. Of course, the quality of our previous experience with the subcontractors was also decisive," says Meik Georg Gessner.

Ambitious mammoth project

In order to turn the pit into a construction site for the Ganzlin Solar Park, Clenergy moved 1.1 million cubic metres of earth and thus levelled the area. In addition to the enormous substructure, the 165,000 solar cells and the transformer stations, the pioneering solar project includes a 25 km long medium-voltage line to the transformer station.

"With GP JOULE we have a top team that delivers A 1 quality. The team has its focus on safety and reliably ensures compliance with the construction schedule - a truly professional cooperation in every respect."

Daniel Ruoss, Vice President of the Clenergy Group and Managing Director of Clenergy Global Projects Germany.
