- By using the international network of Industrial Services, Lamers will have the opportunity to globally serve its customers, that more often need a local tailor-made service.


- Within Flow Control the Lamers systems can be sold together with the clean gas activities in laboratories, universities and research centres. Aalberts Industries has a worldwide presence in these markets.


- Besides this Lamers can use the manufacturing machining capacity within Industrial Services to develop and deliver their systems faster and more efficient.


The acquisition will be financed from credit facilities and will be realised after fulfilment of all formalities and approvals, which is expected before the end of June 2011. Lamers’ results will immediately contribute to the profit per share.


Phoenix Solar inaugurates two CdTe solar parks


With a total peak power of 18 MW, the Jocksdorf and Preschen solar parks in Germany will save around 10,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year.


Phoenix Solar AG, a German based photovoltaic (PV) system integrator, celebrated the inauguration of two solar parks in Jocksdorf and Preschen, together with its financing partner KGAL GmbH & Co. KG, on 20 May 2011.


The solar parks are located on a former military airbase and will supply green electricity to more than 4,300 four-person households in future. Both solar parks employ First Solar CdTe thin-film modules.


The Jocksdorf park employs 55,360 modules of the FS275 and 50,092 units of the FS277.


The Preschen facility houses 129,600 FS-277 modules.


A large number of guests from politics and the business community took part in the ceremony.


In her opening speech, Anita Tack, Brandenburg’s Environment Minister, underlined how important the expansion of renewable energies for Germany’s future is. She commented, “Today Brandenburg is already sourcing 15.6 % of its primary energy requirements from renewable energies. This brings annual savings on CO2 to almost 10 million tons. Brandenburg is viewed as a role model for an ambitious energy and climate protection policy, and has made it possible to convince entrepreneurs, investors and scientists to translate their ideas into reality here in particular. In the meantime, a branch of industry has successfully developed on this basis, with more than 12,000 jobs, 3,000 of which are in the photovoltaic sector alone.”


In other speeches, District Administrator Harald Altekrüger, Eberhard Müller, the Mayor, Klaus Wolf of KGAL and Ralph Schneider of Phoenix Solar AG underscored the special features of both projects and gave an insight into the development, construction, expected electricity yields and the significance of the solar parks for the region.


KGAL commissioned Phoenix Solar AG with building the solar parks and has incorporated them into a fund for institutional investors. “We have been realising projects with Phoenix Solar for our investors for many years now. With both these projects as well, we relied on the experience and professionalism of our partner Phoenix Solar and have successfully added to our investment portfolio in the field of renewable energies”, explained Klaus Wolf, member of KGAL’s Board of Directors.


Phoenix Solar was responsible for the turnkey construction of both power plants in the capacity of
