German developer Goldbeck Solar has started construction of a 37.3MW solar farm in Bournemouth, Dorset.

When connected to the grid the project will be one of the largest solar farms in the UK.

The plant will use SMA inverters and REC modules, with Goldbeck Solar offering full EPC as well as operations and management services.

Joachim Goldbeck, CEO of Goldbeck Solar said that the company was well positioned to take advantage of the booming UK market – both commercial rooftops and ground-mount projects.

The German company claims to have connected more than 90MW of solar capacity in the UK.
