Central inverters from KACO new energy power Europe's largest solar roof

Neckarsulm, 12th June 2013 – It is Europe’s largest PV installation on a single roof: in the German town of Leinefelde-Worbis (Thuringia), a logistics complex is topped by an 8 MW solar power plant. For feeding the solar power into the grid, the project partners decided on the Powador XP550-HV TL by KACO new energy GmbH.

One roof, 8 MW: in the Thuringian town of Leinefelde-Worbis, Europe’s largest solar roof is feeding into the grid.

The Powador XP550-HV TL by KACO new energy is the reliable and future-proof backbone of the plant.

The most powerful central inverters by the German manufacturer of solar inverters and around 32,000 polycrystalline Jinko modules form Europe’s largest rooftop PV system. On a surface area of 80,000 m², 245 and 250 W modules are strung together to an overall power of 8 MW. This amount of solar electricity is enough to supply power to 2,000 households.

Solar-Dacheinkauf GmbH & Co. KG of Mannheim supplied the components, planning and turnkey installation have been in the hands of Solar-Energiedach GmbH of Sembach. Both companies have their origins in the roofing sector. This combination paid off; including the refurbishment of the roof, the modules, substructure and inverters were installed within only eight weeks.

Dominik Daub, Managing Director of Solar-Dacheinkauf, explained the decision to use the Powador XP550-HV TL thus: "The price/performance ratio was just right. The transformerless Powador XP550-HV TL is highly flexible and was very easy to integrate into the overall system. What's more, the versatile monitoring options are really practical – which is very important when it comes to safeguarding an investment such as this."
