a+f receives again new major order of Euro 41.1 million ​​​​​​​

Bielefeld. a+f GmbH, a GILDEMEISTER group company, has concluded again a new major order for a total value of Euro 41.1 million. GILDEMEISTER is thereby strengthening its presence on the Italian solar market. 

Nine solar parks with an output of 1 megawatt each will be installed in Apulia in the next months. Southern Italy is regarded as a growing market in the solar business as the conditions for operating photovoltaic plants are attractive. With its new major order, GILDEMEISTER is further expanding its leading position in the Italian solar market. 

After the Intersolar, the largest trade fair worldwide for solar technology, a+f GmbH received "SunCarrier" orders from the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, India, China and Japan and could thereby aquire reference plants in these markets. In the future the US American market will also be interesting for the "SunCarrier". For implementing the international market strategy a+f can draw upon the global comprehensive GILDEMEISTER sales and service network.

Since its entry into the future-oriented market of solar technology, GILDEMEISTER has installed solar plants with total output of up to now 51 megawatts in Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece and South Korea. Another 25 megawatts are actually being built and realised. At the Intersolar for the first time the new tracking system "SkyCarrier" – which has been specially developed for countries in the equatorial region and is intended primarily to tap into markets in the Middle East – was presented to the market.
