Siemens to construct Czech plant

Power-generation company Siemens Energy has received its first order from the Czech Republic for the turnkey construction of a large ground-based photovoltaic plant, from Prague construction company DPES.

The plant, with a rating of 4MWp, will be erected in Dobré Pole, around 50km south of Brno.

After completion, scheduled for end of 2010, the solar-power plant will provide nearly 1,000 households in the Czech Republic with environmentally friendly power.
