Hanwha and AGR power up 24MW PV Park in UK

By Editor


Hanwha Q CELLS has partnered with AG Renewables (AGR), to power up a 24.3 MW PV plant for Ingenious Clean Energy.

The PV park in Stowbridge, Cambridgeshire, England, was constructed and grid-connected at the end of March. More than 94,500 Q.PRO-G3 solar panels were installed within three weeks.

The plant will generate around 22,445 MWh of energy per year; enough to power 24,800 local households and save 9,650 tons of carbon emissions each year.

AGR, a UK renewable energy developer was responsible for the project development of the Stowbridge project.

Hanwha Q CELLS, the European PV provider and provider of Power Plant Solutions, has supplied PV modules as well as the EPC contract provider for the construction and delivery of the PV Park.

Ingenious Clean Energy will sell the electricity from the PV Park under the 1.6 ROCs scheme which was in place in the UK until 31 March 2014.

Putting the Stowbridge PV Park in operations ahead of the changes in ROC’s scheme was a top priority and a challenge. Due to the commitment and efficient work of Hanwha Q CELLS and AGR the Power Plant was grid connected on time and has since been delivering reliable yields, said, Sebastian Speight, MD, Ingenious Clean Energy.

In addition, the levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) of the plant is a result of its low balance of system cost, low running cost and in- class yield, ensured by the high performance Q CELLS solar modules.

Additionally, the minimal construction time and the consecutive connection to the grid ensure an earliest possible yield of the power plant.

Hanwha Q CELLS possess a track record of more than 700 MW of large scale power plant solutions around the globe, offering development, planning and construction work as well as quality PV panels.
