Joint venture Secursun has started the construction of the first solar parks in its portfolio of projects amounting to around 1.1 GW. In total, more than 50 of its utility solar PV parks are scheduled to be completed in Germany between 2023 and 2026. All the plants will be planned and constructed by the Berlin-based project developer Securenergy Solutions together with Sunotec, a prominent company in solar park construction. The two companies each have a half share in their joint venture, Secursun.

Construction of at least seven solar parks from the Secursun portfolio will begin this year. Amongst the first are the PV plants in Utzedel (near Demmin) and Brusow (near Kröpelin) both in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. Ground-breaking at the site in Dallgow-Döberitz in Brandenburg (near Berlin) will follow soon.

The average project size in the 1.1 GW pipeline will be around 20 MW peak (MWp). Individual solar parks with up to 150 MWp are also planned. For example the PV plant in Frankenförde near Luckenwalde, southeast of Berlin, will have a capacity of about 42 MWp. Construction is scheduled to start at the end of the year.

Last year, an overall photovoltaic capacity of 7.2 GWp was built in Germany, including ground-mounted and roof top installations. The Secursun portfolio alone planned for the next three years will amount to 15 % of that figure. “We are very pleased that we can contribute to the ambitious expansion targets in Germany with our more than 50 projects. It requires lots of speed to achieve what we need in terms of the energy transition in Germany,” commented Securenergy Solutions CEO Holger Stabernack,.
