German-based solar manufacturing company BELECTRIC has become the first company in the world to install more than 1 gigawatt (GW) of photovoltaic power.

With several photovoltaic systems commissioned early last week, this brought the total cumulative installed solar power by BELECTRIC over the 1 GW mark.

The solar power plant in Alt Daber near Wittstock (Germany) was commissioned at the end of 2011. With 67.8 MWp photovoltaic power it stands for one of the biggest solar power plants BELECTRIC has constructed.

“This is an outstanding event for BELECTRIC and the photovoltaics industry in general. My special thanks go to all the employees who have driven forward the development of the company in all parts of the world in the past 10 years,” stated Bernhard Beck, CEO of BELECTRIC. “At BELECTRIC, we employ over 2,000 people across the globe in areas such as research, plant construction and maintenance. Our machine park, the development and production of system components in our production areas and the in-house construction of power plants are the unique selling points of our company.”

BELECTRIC employs over 2,000 professionals across the planet, and recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.
