Solarhybrid AG, a German developer of solar projects, is in talks to raise about $364 million to build a 150 MW plant at an airbase dating back to the Nazi era.

“There are different options available, including full equity, full debt, and there’s high interest in the project,” Chief Financial Officer Albert Klein said in a phone interview.

Solarhybrid has signed contracts to rent about half the Neuhardenberg private airport in Brandenburg to develop the project, the Brilon-based company said today in a statement on its website. The power plant, which would be the company’s ninth and biggest on former airfields, will be constructed and connected to the grid by December 2012.

Built in 1934 as a secret airport, Neuhardenberg was at one point used by the Luftwaffe to test rocket-propelled airplanes, according to the airport’s website. East Germany’s communist army and then the country’s combined armed forces later used the facility, which was privatized in 2001.
