Based in Northern Germany, BALTICSOLAR is an innovative and leading company, founded in 2004 by solar energy specialists with deep experience in developing and marketing photovoltaic facilities. From consulting to purchasing and planning by its engineers, right up to installation by the experienced BALTICSOLAR construction team – all theses services are delivered by the same company.

In July 2011, a roof mounted solar power plant was connected to the grid as one of the largest installations all over the city of Hamburg. HAMBURG ENERGIE and Hamburg Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA) built a sustainable energy generating solution on a roof area of 29,000 m². By realizing this project, the local energy provider was able to complete its ambitious urban solar project of installing solar modules with a total capacity of ten megawatt in 2011.

The installation with Solar Frontier CIS modules can provide 170 two-personhouseholds per year with solar energy. The 3,918 CIS modules are efficient and economical at the same time and have a total installed capacity of 509.34 kWp. Another achievement of the energy provider was the aesthetic integration of the power plant into the character of the harbor, which could be realized through the uniform black appearance of the modules. This project is the excellent proof that traditional and future technologies can exist side by side.
