Phoenix Solar to build project in Texas for Apex Clean Energy

Phoenix Solar Inc., a subsidiary of Phoenix Solar AG (ISIN DE000A0BVU93), said July 26 that it has been awarded its first project that will provide energy to the U.S. military and the company’s first project in the state of Texas.

Phoenix Solar’s scope of services will include the design, procurement and construction of the solar facility of a hybrid project for Apex Clean Energy. Apex is currently overseeing construction of the hybrid wind/solar energy project, which is designed to optimize solar energy produced on-site at US Army Garrison Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas. The project will incorporate low-cost wind energy produced at the Cotton Plains Wind facility in Floyd County, Texas.

“Apex is among the most active companies in the US renewables market, providing energy solutions for the corporate and public sector markets,” said Tim P. Ryan, CEO of Phoenix Solar AG. “We appreciate their broad knowledge regarding wind energy facilities. From our side, we are very pleased to contribute our excellence in engineering, procurement and construction to the solar part of their projects.”

The Fort Hood project is the first installation that Phoenix Solar will construct as a part of a hybrid plant in the U.S. as well as a foray into the growing solar market in the state of Texas.

Phoenix Solar AG, with headquarters in Sulzemoos / Munich, Germany, is an international photovoltaic systems integrator. As an EPC contractor specializing in the design and execution of solar power plants, Phoenix Solar places special emphasis on the “on-time and onbudget” construction and delivery of solar power plants, optimized to deliver superior output.
