Photovoltaic record: Largest PV roof system in Austria

CCE – Clean Capital Energy is building Austria’s largest rooftop PV system
on the roof of AMAG Austria Metall AG in Ranshofen with a nominal output
of 6.9 MW.

A rated output of 6.9 MW and an area of over 55,000 m² makes the new CCE Clean Capital Energy installed photovoltaic roof system on the roofs of the aluminium manufacturer AMAG in Ranshofen Austria’s largest system to date. Importantly, CCE not only installs the system but covers the entire value chain from “in house” – development, construction, financing to full operation of the plant.

In total, the photovoltaic specialist is investing several million Euros on AMAG’s roofs. All of
the electricity produced is consumed by AMAG’s production facilities via a contracting
model. CCE and AMAG have concluded a longterm contract for this purpose. The plant will
generate around 6.7 GWh of electricity per year, which corresponds to the consumption of
around 1,700 households. Construction of the plant will begin in spring 2021. The construction
period is expected to last four months.

“In many respects, this project represents exactly the necessary steps to become CO2-neutral in Austria by 2030,” explains CCE Group owner and CEO Martin Dürnberger. “In order to
achieve this goal, the energy systems of cities and industries must be consistently converted to better protect the climate. This forward-looking project, which we are implementing together with our partner AMAG, is a significant milestone on our journey to shape the sustainable energy world of tomorrow. I hope that many more projects will follow this example”.

“An absolute showcase project in which we as CCE cover the entire value chain. This offers the perfect conditions for customers and is a decisive advantage of such contracts,” adds Robert Bogner, the Managing Director responsible for CCE Austria.
