Photovoltaic Power Plant, Feasibility Study

Photovoltaic Power Plant, Feasibility Study
Solar energy is foreseen to have a significant share in South Korea’s renewable energy mix. The project developer Samyang Eco Energy has awarded Lahmeyer International a contract to perform a feasibility study for a photovoltaic power plant with a total capacity of approximately three megawatt.
The study includes a solar resource assessment based on existing data from nearby weather stations, an estimation of the technical solar potential on the selected site, and the design of a preliminary technical conceptual layout considering several current cell technologies (mono crystalline, polycrystalline, thin film).
