Canadian Solar has supplied solar modules for an 8.5MW power plant in Lindenhof near Neubrandenburg in the German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany.


Berlin-based saferay expects to complete the solar power project in December 2011.

The solar photovoltaic (PV) system uses a total of 36,000 CS6P-P solar modules manufactured by Canadian Solar.

These modules are particularly powerful with high quality, reliability and good energy yield.

In September 2011, saferay completed the Senftenberg II/III 78MW partial complex in Brandenburg, using Canadian Solar modules.

Canadian Solar chairman and CEO Shawn Qu said the project makes an important contribution toward the development of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

"Solar energy generates green energy and is a driver for the creation of qualified jobs in German cities and communities. Wherever PV plants are built, the local economy will also benefit," Qu said.
