A 4.6 MW photovoltaic carport system
At the beginning of November 2020, Coruscant Développement, a French subsidiary of the Obton group, commissioned a new carport plant on the site of the automotive logistics company STVA Egerland (CAT Group) in Forbach.
This 4.6 MWp project brings the total power of plants built by Coruscant Développement on CAT group’s parking lots to 33 MWp.
Coruscant Développement designed and carried out a tailor-made project while respecting the activity of the site. The installation meets the needs of the customer by maximizing sheltered spaces while limiting the impact of structures on the ground.
For this project responding to a CRE call for tenders, the developer chose GCL (with local support from SYNAPSUN) to equip the carport with low carbon solar panels.
This installation, including 14,400 GCL P3 / 60 H 320 photovoltaic panels, will produce 4,430 MWh each year according to Coruscant Développement‘s estimates, i.e. some 101 tons of CO² avoided per year of operation or the equivalent of the annual electricity consumption of 1,000 French households.
Despite the particular health context, Coruscant Développement has shown adaptability and professionalism to finalize this project.
This commissioning reflects the ambition of the Obton group, parent company of Coruscant Développement.
Obton is a leading Danish investment group in Europe with nearly 900 MW in operation in sola renergy. In its 2020 listing, Solarplaza* lists Obton as the 9th solar portfolio operator in Europe. In line with its expansion strategy, Obton recently announced a partnership with Shannon Energy in Ireland for the construction of 500 MWp of solar power plants, and won 120MW of the Irish government tender projects.
