Four new solar farms in the U.K. with a total of 64 MWp located in the UK regions of Gloucestershire, Telford and Wrekin, Sussex and Kent have come online. The projects are using solar panels from Hanwha SolarOne.
The solar farms have a total expected annual output of 64.6 GWh — enough to power more than 15,000 British homes. ib vogt GmbH is specialized in the development, financing, turnkey realization, operation and asset management of large scale solar power plants.
“During what has been a very challenging first quarter of 2015 for the UK market, Hanwha SolarOne has once again proven to be a reliable supplier of high quality products and has certainly contributed to our success,” said Carl von Braun, CFO of ib vogt.
Hanwha’s new HSL 60 S modules fit perfectly with our concept of highly optimized solar farms that incorporate state-of-the-art technology and top quality engineering components.
“As a long-time partner of vogt solar, we are proud to work with this solar farm pioneer once again to complete these impactful solar projects,” said Kyung Min Kim, Managing Director of Hanwha SolarOne GmbH, an EU branch of Hanwha Q CELLS.
With the four solar farms connected to the grid, our durable HSL 60 modules will generate clean, reliable solar energy in the UK for many years to come.
HSL-60 modules, characterized by excellent performance and extended durability, are backed by a 12 year workmanship warranty and a 25 year linear performance warranty.
