At BroadcastAsia2014 Ampegon is showcasing its solutions in the sector of green technologies. Offering complete photovoltaic power plants from project development to installation and monitoring, the company says the power plants can be installed at existing antenna sites or other open spaces.
The firm has developed a unique solution to transform large areas of land at transmission sites into photovoltaic power plants in order to produce renewable energy onsite. It promotes the optimized utilization of fallow land and explains that the key conditions for the creation of PV power plants are fulfilled by most AM transmitter stations.
In 2012 Ampegon GmbH in Schifferstadt, Germany began working on a pilot PV project, including the planning of land usage and the securing of necessary construction permits, at a shortwave antenna site in the Wertach valley in southern Germany. The 20 MW solar power plant has been delivering energy since December 2013. Ampegon says that at present it is working, together with partner companies, on up to 20 other projects.
Ampegon will be present on the German Pavilion Booth 4D1-14 during BroadcastAsia2014.
