Feasibility Study "Photovoltaik Plant to Cover the Disposal Site"
City: Münster
Field of activity: Precautionary Environmental Protection
Project description:

The objective of this study is to determine the chances for the realisation and the effect of an extensive photovoltaik site (PV) to cover the disposal site. Due to the planned transposition of the central disposal site, questions are being considered regarding the reduction of the area needed, the suitability and the substitution of materials (the adoption of insulation tasks). At the same time, the question of transferring the technical realisation of the PV plants to similar locations is being examined.

The findings have shown that no proof can be found of the equivalent properties for a surface covering of a disposal site with PV modules. In the next step, the questions of resource protection, the transfer to similar sites as well as the technical and, if necessary, legal changes were examined in order to attain proof of the equivalent properties. In addition to this, a concrete test field has been planned for the implementation of a PV plant taking a simply constructed support system into consideration. In addition, the possibility of getting such a plot authorised will be examined and coordinated with the appropriate authorities. Only after these steps have been taken, can any findings and results be expected regarding obtaining legal approval and expecting the transference of such a solution for covering waste.
Current status: The research assignment and initial planning stage for the test field has been completed.
