Hanwha Q CELLS and its development partner Golden Square Energy (GSE) have put two solar power plants in operation near Cambridge in the United Kingdom. The 24.8MW Fenland Farm and the 20.4MW Green End PV parks were started constructing in late 2014, and have been connected to the grid in the first quarter of 2015, on time to operate under the 1.4 ROC scheme.
GSE is a joint venture between AG Renewables and Ingenious Clean Energy which was established in 2014. The JV developed both solar power plants by using Hanwha Q CELL’s PV modules. Hanwha Q CELLS was also responsible for the EPC and O&M services.
"We are very happy to continue our successful partnership with Hanwha Q CELLS on these projects," said Oliver Breidt, one of the directors of GSE. "Together we have proven that we deliver fast and reliable development and EPC capabilities as well as attractive Return on Investment."
The two projects were consisted of some 172,500 solar modules and are expected to produce around 44,000 MWh of clean electricity annually. With both parks on Hanwha Q CELLS’ balance sheet, the company now owns a portfolio of more than 45 MW of solar plants in the UK and has been responsible for EPC of another 25 MW of solar parks, totalling a track record of around 70 MW of successfully constructed and operating PV parks in the UK.
Mauro Di Fiore, Vice President Global EPC / Utility at Hanwha Q CELLS added: "Both Green End and Fenland Farm are yet further proof that Hanwha Q CELLS is the right partner when it comes to reliable Power Plant Solutions in the UK. We are very satisfied about the established and reliable partnership with GSE and we are looking forward to working together again in the future."
