Samsung C&T Deutschland GmbH and GICON® cooperate on ground-mounted photovoltaic systems

On Tuesday (16 April), GICON®-Großmann Ingenieur Consult GmbH and Samsung C&T Deutschland GmbH signed a cooperation agreement for the development of ground-mounted photovoltaic systems. The signing took place at GICON® headquarters in Dresden. Both partners intend to jointly plan and develop ground-mounted photovoltaic systems in Germany in the future.

Leveraging its global presence stretched over 70 overseas offices in 40 countries, Samsung C&T is a committed value creator involved in trading key industrial commodities in the fields of chemicals, steel, and industrial materials, and constantly develops new businesses in renewable energy, battery recycling, hydrogen, etc.

GICON® to provide complete planning services

In addition to communication with the authorities, the contract also includes transparent project development at a municipal level and early discussions with citizens, landowners and land users to assess the fundamental feasibility of projects. GICON® will take on this role on behalf of Samsung. As a company based in Germany, GICON® has been driving forward the energy transition for many years and developing projects in the field of renewable energies (photovoltaics, wind and bioenergy) as pioneers of a future worth living. The engineers are therefore very familiar with the official requirements for approval planning. The current contract with Samsung stipulates that GICON® will take over the complete planning services. This includes construction management, approval, design and implementation planning as well as construction supervision.

GICON® Managing Director Prof Jochen Großmann sees this as confirmation of the company's course: "As a group of companies, we have made a name for ourselves in recent years in the planning of major projects for Intel, TSMS, Bosch and other globally active companies. With Samsung, we have now been approached by another top global brand to intensify our cooperation. We take this as an incentive to maintain our company philosophy of 'everything from a single source'. Because, as our clients repeatedly assure us, it is this unique range of services that sets us apart."

GICON® and Samsung C&T Deutschland GmbH expand successful collaboration

Ingo Senftleben, Head of Project Development at GICON®, is looking forward to working with Samsung: "We are already working with Samsung on other projects in a spirit of trust. The ground-mounted photovoltaic systems are another indispensable pillar of the energy transition. In addition to the technical and approval-related planning services, GICON® will support all future projects with environmental impact assessments, plan compensatory measures and ensure compliance with statutory species protection through intelligent solutions. As GICON®, we stand for sustainability and the success of the energy transition so that the supply of green energy can be secured for families, communities and companies."

Another advantage of GICON® is its interdisciplinary cooperation, which means that legal and regional planning aspects are also taken into account. Interdisciplinary teams ensure short coordination channels without any loss of information.

Mijung Chae, Head of Samsung C&T Deutschland GmbH: "We were looking for a partner in Germany with technical expertise and a thorough knowledge of local laws and regulations like GICON.”
