J.v.G Thoma, Germany, provides solar energy for Estonia

The company J.v.G. Thoma from the city Freystadt in Germany (Bavaria, Oberpfalz) has received another contract. The company that offers complete solutions for the production of solar systems is required  this time  in Estonia with its know -how.

There a plant with 15 MW should emerge and supply mainly the Baltic States and Russia with modules. “First promising talks with the so-called EPC companies which build ‘Power Plants’, are already being done. The production of solar modules is also important for Estonia itself, because the country wants to become independent from the power supplies from Russia”, the company said in a press release.

Just recently J.v.G. Thoma GmbH and the Tunisian Green Tech Panel started a joint venture. The solar production will begin shortly, the company in Freistadt promised. In Tunis, the so-called Desert modules are to be provided by the Oberpfalz company. These are extremely heat resistant and have a high power output.

Meelis Ojasild, Estonia

Meelis Ojasild, Estonia:

“There is a joke in Estonia, that home is where the bills come,” said the Estonian Meelis Ojasild. Quite at home, the 30-year-old in Munich, however, still does not feel. Only in September last year, he moved here from Tallinn, has finished his studies at the LMU of intercultural communication. He misses his friends, the electronic music scene of Tallinn – “and the long bright nights with sauna and night swimming.” And just as he has yet to make friends with Munich, he is doing with the European idea. “I think we’re still looking for our soul,” says Ojasild. After all, he has already taken responsibility – for the common young, urban culture. Together with the Munich Department of Culture, he has engaged himself for the pan-European event “What the Deal”. mbr/SZ from 22/05/2014
