The meeco Group is on its way to completing another solar photovoltaic power plant, this time in the beautiful location of Prunu, Corsica (France). With a total installed nominal power capacity of close to 4500 kWp of fixed installations distributed across 17ha, the Prunu project represents what The meeco Group does best – the finest renewable energy production even in challenging but energy yielding terrains.

To achieve this, The meeco Group has been since the beginning in close collaboration with very strong project partners including, ABB for the engineering and logistics, Ralos GmbH and Amatec GmbH for the construction and execution, Canadian Solar supplying top-tier modules and finally KACO new energy for the inverters. For the first year of operation the installation is expected to generate well over 6000 MWh/year of power and thus save close to 4000 tons of CO2 emissions per year.

All of the structures have already been successfully installed and the solar modules are now being placed and connected. “The project could not be running better”, says Eric Borremans, heading the project for The meeco Group. “All of the teams involved have been doing a splendid job in Prunu. We are all convinced that the project will be certified by the CONSUEL by early September and we look forward to delivering it to our client”, explains Borremans. The project is expected to be fully operational and connected to the grid by early November this year.
