Hanwha Q CELLS, Europe’s largest PV provider headquartered in Germany, announced the supply of more than 42,000 modules of its Q.PRO-G3 series for an 11MW solar farm in South of France. As one of the world’s largest solar companies Hanwha Q CELLS has teamed up with Martifer Solar for the project. Moreover both companies expand their co-operation in Europe by collaborating on more than 30MW module supply of Q CELLS solar modules in different European countries.
“We are satisfied with the commitment and quality of Q CELLS modules and look forward to continue collaborating in our future PV plants. Martifer Solar is prepared to develop and maintain key strategic partnerships in order to advance our business model and drive down the LCoE in post-FIT markets, such as France,” said Bernardo Mota Veiga, Head of Manufacturing, Purchasing & Trading of Portugal-based Martifer Solar. And Hanwha Q CELLS’ Key Account Manager for Portugal, Luis Perez, added, “We are glad to supply our ‘Engineered in Germany’ solar modules for another PV project of Martifer Solar in Europe.” Martifer Solar was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the 11 MW solar farm in the south of France and will manage the subsequent operations and maintenance (O&M). The PV park has been installed in just ten weeks’ time on an area of approximately 200,000 m2. The ground-mounted plant will generate an estimated 17 GWh of clean energy per year; enough to power approximately 1,860 local households and save approximately 1,345 tons of carbon emissions each year.
