ib vogt GmbH in Berlin has sold three new UK solar farms of total 46 MWp to Primrose Solar in London. The three plants are located at Littlebourne near Canterbury, Kent (17 MWp), at Ninfield near Bexhill-on-sea, Sussex (11.5 MWp), and at Herne Bay, Kent (18 MWp).
The construction started in July and the projects are soon to be completed and connected to the grid in the coming weeks.
The PV plants will generate total 48 GWh of electricity saving over 600,000 tons of carbon dioxide in 25 years. Each site will be soon commissioned qualifying for the 1.4 ROC scheme.
The projects were developed by ib vogt GmbH, with vogt solar, which is also responsible for EPC and O&M contractor. Ikarus Capital Partners was the financial adviser to ib vogt GmbH on this transaction.
All three projects are on sites in the south-east of England with high levels of sunlight. The sites are well-screened and company will work to enhance biodiversity and to improve ecology on the sites, said, Giles Clark, CEO, Primrose Solar.
With this transaction the solar portfolio has been increased to 175 MWp of projects, either operating or under construction, and our sites are making an important contribution to local and national renewable energy targets and reducing carbon emissions, added Clark.
With these three latest projects a total of around 220 MWp of high performance PV projects in UK have been constructed demonstrating the long-term commitment to this market and to contributing to the UK’s renewable energy generation and CO2 reduction targets, commented, Anton Milner, managing director, ib vogt GmbH.
