The Eggebek Solar Park was Germany's largest photovoltaic power station when completed in August 2011, and one of the largest in the world. It is built on a 160 ha (400 acres) plot of land near the Eggebek municipality in Schleswig-Holstein state, Germany near the border with Denmark.[1] The solar park has a power generation capacity of 83.6 MW and uses roughly 360,000 state-of-the-art multicrystalline solar modules of the TSM-PC05 series produced by the Chinese company Trina Solar.

The solar park is built on the site of a former German Navy military base where the Naval Aviation Wing 2 was stationed until 2005.[1]
