PARABEL AG´S KREMPENDORF SOLAR PARK BEGINNING TO TAKE SHAPE
At the end of June 2012, the 40.5 MW Jännersdorf solar park in Brandenburg (Prignitz, in the municipality of Marienfliess)
At the end of June 2012, the 40.5 MW Jännersdorf solar park in Brandenburg (Prignitz, in
the municipality of Marienfliess) was completed and commenced operation in accordance with
the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG). The “sister” project in Krempendorf, which is roughly
10 km away, is designed to achieve an output of 50 MW and is Parabel AG’s next major
The solar power plant is being constructed on a roughly 70-hectare site that forms part of the former Jännersdorf military training area. Four project companies have been founded, which will each implement between 8 and 20 MW.
“We know how demanding it will be to get this plant into operation by 30 September. However, with the implementation of Jännersdorf we have impressively demonstrated that we can construct large-scale parks in a very short space of time,” explains Jürgen Will, CEO of Parabel AG. “For two of the project companies with a total of 32 MW we’re still looking for an investor, and we’re confident that we’ll be able to find one at short notice.”
Parabel has secured all necessary grid connections as well as additional ones. During the next two years, the company is planning to connect further projects to the grid in the Prignitz region with a total capacity of around 80 MW.
“As with Jännersdorf, we are receiving exemplary support during the approval procedures for Krempendorf solar park from both the local community and the responsible authorities,” adds Jürgen Will. “The experience of those responsible with renewable energy projects – the area around Meyenburg is already near the top of the rankings in Germany – has proved very helpful in implementing the project.”
Despite the difficult first half of the year for the solar power industry, Parabel is now confident that the Marienfliess Solar Cluster – which consists of Jännersdorf and Krempendorf solar parks – can soon be completed with its originally planned 90 MW.

About Parabel AG
Founded in 1992, Parabel AG has developed over a period of twenty years into a medium-sized solar power company with 55 members of staff and a turnover reaching the EUR 30 million mark in the year 2011. The company’s headquarters are located in Berlin.
In the photovoltaic sector, the company is currently focussing on the European-wide project business with large-scale photovoltaic rooftop systems and solar parks, and is thus a partner for investors, industry and local authorities. In recent years, solar power systems with outputs in excess of 90 MW have been realised. Parabel is currently developing projects throughout Europe amounting to around 70 MW. Product distribution rounds off the company’s range of services for solar components. Parabel is, for example, an authorised dealer for Siemens inverters.
In the solar thermal sector, Parabel manufactures the Juri Solar Heating Manager, an intelligent hydraulic station for large-scale solar thermal systems that is used in apartment buildings, healthcare facilities and the hotel trade. The company was awarded the German Solar Prize for this development, which enables up to 30% heating energy to be saved. In the end-customer sector, Parabel has been selling the excellent solar and heating technology from the Solvis company for the last 15 years.
