The open-land PV project developers at GP Joule based in Reußenköge, Germany, have put into operation the 40 MW solar power station Pompogne in the Départment Lot-et-Garonne near Bordeaux, France. The project consists of four sections with a central transformer station.
The electricity from the solar power plants is carried via four cable routes with a total length of 57 km to the transformer. This has been purpose-built in Castelajoux for the solar power station and works at 63 kV on the high-voltage side. In the four sections of the project, GP Joule installed approximately 175,000 PV modules and 57 central inverters, which cover a total area of 75 hectares. The power plant is located in the districts of Pompogne, Barbaste and Fargues, which are around 150 km from the coast of Aquitaine.
In addition to solar projects the general contractor GP Joule also plans and builds wind farms as well as biogas plants and new storage systems.
