BAUER Solarenergie puts a new Logistics Center into operation
Photovoltaic systems on the roof of the Logistics Center generate enough power to cover the annual power needs of up to 40 households
BAUER Solarenergie GmbH with it's headquarters in Selzen has put a new Logistics Center in Sörgenloch into operation. The company purchased the 8,000 square metre large property with a hall and neighbouring administration and storage facilities back in the summer.
With around 4,000 square metres of useful area, the hall offers plenty of space to store modules, inverters and all other materials required for the construction of photovoltaic systems. In addition, the warehouse administration and the entire installation department have been relocated to Sörgenloch. There is also sufficient space for the storage of the comprehensive trade fair and international print materials of the company. The system materials can be loaded and unloaded at six ramps with three additional ramps available for loading the company's trucks with trade fair materials. Alongside the size, the convenient location of the site close to the Autobahn was one of the key reasons for the purchase.
"The hall has sufficient space to cope with our greatly increased storage requirements," explains head of marketing Christian Ludwig. "The previous storage facilities in Hahnheim were only taken into operation in 2008, but we are full to bursting already," he continued. Bauer Solarenergie exports modules for photovoltaic systems throughout Germany and into other countries in Europe and is consistently expanding their project business both at home and abroad. A 1 MW open-space system is currently being constructed in Apulia, in South Italy.
On the roof of the storage facilities in Sörgenloch, the company has installed a photovoltaic system which produces electricity at a rate of 163.17 kWp (Kilowatt peak). This is approximately equal to the annual power consumption of 40 households. "In this way, we are able to save in excess of 95 tonnes of CO² annually," says Christian Ludwig. This enables Bauer Solarenergie to highlight the company aim, the use of solar technology to achieve greater quality of life and progress in tune with a clean environment.
Intersolar 2010: KIKAM donation campaign is a true success!
On the occasion of Intersolar 2010, BAUER Solarenergie GmbH in conjunction with Arthur Abraham called for a large-scale donation campaign
The enormous level of interest could scarcely be handled, but in view of the good cause, Abraham, the BAUER team and the visitors happily put up with the close conditions. "No-one could have imagined this number of visitors, but refreshments are provided. It is good to see that our commitment has paid off and that we found such a great willingness to donate amongst the visitors to the trade fair. We would like to say a heartfelt thank you, both on our behalf and in the name of KIKAM e. V.," says Christian Ludwig, head of marketing at BAUER Solarenergie GmbH.

But there is still much left to do. Above all, the constant readiness of the K-NEF (Kinder-Notarzt-Einsatzfahrzeug – children's emergency doctor vehicle) and the resuscitation courses for care personnel, doctors, pupils and laypersons are high on the list of priorities. The association relies primarily on financial support and would be pleased to receive any donation, however much it is (account for donations, account number 29 000 445, bank sort code 550 501 20, at Sparkasse Mainz). Every euro counts!
