Hi, what are you looking for?


A floating power station in a former mine. Right at our border

Germany will build a floating photovoltaic power plant next to the Polish border. The farm will be built on the site of a former open-pit lignite mine.

The Germans will build a floating photovoltaic power plant six kilometers from the Polish border, near Cottbus. The facility will be built on the artificial Cottbuser Ostsee Reservoir, which was built on the site of a former open-pit lignite mine.

PV . Journalists looking at About the fact that permission has been given to build a floating solar farm in the Cottbuser Ostsee Reservoir. The solar power plant, which will be built in the Lusatian Basin, will have a capacity of 21 megawatts. Project companies Leag and EPNE said construction could begin in the spring of 2023.

– Although the solar system floating on Cottbus Ostsee has an area of ​​1.9 thousand square meters hectares takes less than 1 percent. The surface of the lake will contribute significantly to the environmentally friendly energy supply of the Cottbus port area, said Fabian von Ossen, Head of Renewable Energy at Lea.

The facility may be expanded in the future. We are talking about the possibility of adding wind turbines and heat pumps to it.

– As part of the project, we combine the production of CO2 neutral energy with the protection of the ecosystem and the interests of society. There are many other lakes in Lusatia that have been built on the site of the former opencast lignite mines, where we would like to operate the floating PV installations. In this way, we gain additional space for the gigawatt plant and energy conversion – commented Dominique Guillou of EPNE.

GigawattFactory is an energy conversion project in Lusatia. The two companies intend to invest 10 billion euros in the development of the energy sector in this region. The money will be spent on developing solar and wind energy projects.
