More than 58,000 PV modules from Hanwha Q CELLS will be used for a 15MW solar farm near the U.K. east coast, and Q CELL will cooperate with U.K.’s Lark Energy, a British solar firm which focuses on financing, developing and installing large-scale, commercial solar projects.
“We decided to use the Q CELLS Q.PRO-G3 modules, because the quality and stability,” said Paul Adams, Lark Energy’s Deputy Managing Director. Lark Energy is the constructer of a so-called “Ellough” power plant in U.K.’s eastern county of Shffolk. Its sister company Deepings Building & Plumbing Supplies provided the Q CELLS modules, inverters and cables and Armstrong Energy arranged the finance for the project at very short notice. After supply of the modules in March and successful installation and connection, the solar farm meets the country’s March 2014 ROC deadline.
“The UK is likely to become the No. 1 European PV market in 2014 and British customers increasingly value premium quality products securing reliable and long-term yields,” said Hanwha Q CELLS' director of sales for UK, Ireland and Scandinavia, Jonathan Goose. “In this context we are glad to supply our ‘Engineered in Germany’ solar modules for yet another PV project in the country and to contribute to the government’s aim of making solar energy central to the country’s renewable energy expansion.”
