Former NATO airfield to be site of one of the largest PV plants in the world

Danfoss Solar Inverters will deliver its TLX Pro string inverter solution for German project developer Möhring Energie’s huge photovoltaic plant at the former NATO airfield in Eggebek, 20 km south of Flensburg (Germany). With a capacity of more than 80 MW the plant will be among the largest in the world.

The string inverter solution from Danfoss makes it possible to significantly increase the energy output of the former airfield area compared to traditional central inverters, because it allows more solar modules to be installed while at the same time utilizing the solar modules to the maximum.

“We are well-known in the market for our string inverter solution for large PV power plants, and many projects are now realized with our concept. However, for utility scale projects with multi megawatt capacity central inverters have so far been preferred. With the size of this project it is evident that our modular concept literally has no size limit” says Gert Taul Pedersen, Senior Director of Sales and Marketing.

CEO and owner of Möhring Energie GmbH, Sascha Möhring, explains the reason for choosing Danfoss’ string inverter solution: “We are able to achieve a much higher energy output with Danfoss’ solution at the airfield area compared to central inverters. Moreover Danfoss’ technology with three MPP trackers makes it possible to optimize even further compared to other string inverter solutions, because shading losses are minimized.”

Another advantage of the string inverter solution is that installation can take place in several parts of the plant at the same time with the teams eventually meeting up in the middle. This makes the installation process far more efficient thus bringing down costs significantly.

The Master functionality feature of Danfoss’ TLX Pro inverters also makes the installation more efficient. The master inverter can handle a large group of inverters – the settings of the master are replicated to the inverter network thus lowering commissioning costs.

Danfoss inverters already produce solar energy in another big plant of 12 MW developed by Möhring Energy GmbH. The plant is located in Busenwurth in Northern Germany.
