Only one month after foundation: subsidiary Kirchner Solar Hellas with strong order situation

Alheim-Heinebach, Germany, March 15, 2012 – Kirchner Solar Hellas, the newly founded Greek subsidiary of Kirchner Solar Group, shows an exceptional business performance despite the currently difficult market situation. According to the company, the comfortable order situation is a result of the in-house developed financing solutions, many years of market and service experience as well as individual solutions tailored to specific customer requirements. With this, the solar company is continuing on its path of success.

One of the biggest customers is the agricultural trade association of Central Greece. Until June 2012 Kirchner Solar Hellas will install ten mounted solar parks on its behalf with an individual capacity of 100 kilowatt (kW). The volume of this project amounts to 2 megawatt (MW). Another assignment is already planned: the association will set up a 1-MW solar park with sonnen_system sun tracking systems of the Kirchner Solar Group.

The company is optimistic regarding business in 2012. “Since 2009 Kirchner Solar has constructed nine solar parks with about 750 kW peak photovoltaic capacity on the Greek mainland,“ says Volkmar Schönenberg, who manages Kirchner Solar Hellas together with his Greek CEO colleague Stylianos Petrantonakis. „This experience now pays off. Already after one month since founding the subsidiary we can say: it had been exactly the right decision. Our pipeline is well filled. As soon as the Greek economy picks up speed again, we expect further orders.”

The product portfolio of Kirchner Solar Group will be presented by Kirchner Solar Hellas at the trade fair for environmental technology and renewable energy Ecotec Athen, March 15 – 18, hall 5 / booth H7.

About PV tracker systems
The „sonnen_system“ PV tracker systems, a product by Kirchner Solar Group, are astronomically controlled biaxial systems. Using a rotatable mount, the solar modules are continuously positioned at a 90 degree angle against the sun. This innovative technology makes sure that the radiation angle against the module is optimal at all times. This way, these solar systems will deliver up to 45% more yield than systems sitting on a fixed structure. So far Kirchner Solar Group produced and installed 11.000 tracking systems worldwide.
