History of maxsolar GmbH
With an output of 4 MWp, the rooftop installation on the Amazon logistics centre near Ludwigshafen in Rhineland-Palatinate is probably the largest to have been built in Europe in 2016. The plant with around 15,000 modules is planned and constructed in cooperation with Avantag Energy s.à.r.l., AMATEC GmbH and the local public utility company in Frankenthal. Almost 4500 shares are issued via the EnergieGenossenschaft Inn-Salzach eG. Thus, a large part of the plant is in the hands of citizens who have shown commitment and want to actively participate in the energy transition.
Germany's largest rooftop system in 2018, with 6.4 MW, is being built on a large hall in Dieburg. It is the first project to be realised through successful participation in a tender by the federal network agency. In total, the finished plant comprises over 20,000 modules.
Our office in Hamburg Altona is opened as the 3rd company site. The team led by branch manager Bjarn Röse is primarily responsible for projects in northern Germany.
The new electromobility business area is established with the "esolution by maxsolar" brand. As a certified charge point operator, we offer our customers all services from planning to installation and billing of charging infrastructure solutions.
We are realising Austria's largest PV ground-mounted photovoltaic plant in Vienna for WienEnergie. The plant has a capacity of 11.45 MW, supplying 4900 households with green electricity. Part of the plant is designed as an AGRI-PV and allows agricultural use between the vertically elevated bifacial modules.
The company has grown to almost 80 employees. Therefore, the site on Innerlohener Str. in Grabenstätt (Erlstätt industrial estate) with 35 workplaces for colleagues from financing, project development, sales and administration will be opened as an additional company site.
On 28 February it reached an agreement to sell 65 per cent of the company's shares to Nature Infrastructure Capital and 35 per cent to GREENVOLT. GREENVOLT holds additional rights to increase its stake in the future. The 100 percent acquisition is being carried out jointly with Nature Infrastructure Capital, GREENVOLT and the company's management team.
