Tier one module supplier Hanwha Q Cells connected two new solar plants with a total capacity of 45MW prior to April’s 1.4ROC deadline.

The supplier worked alongside its development partner, Golden Square Energy (GSE), to put the 24.8MW Green End solar farm and 20.4MW Fenland Farm project into operation, with both parks now added to Hanwha’s UK portfolio.

Planning consent was received for Fenland Farm in November 2014 and for Green End in December, and Hanwha tasked GSE – a joint venture between AG Renewables and Ingenious Clean Energy – with the construction and grid connection of both projects.

Hanwha provided Q Cells Q.Pro-G3 modules and has assumed the operations and maintenance of both plants, which take the supplier’s UK portfolio to 70MW in capacity.

Mauro di Fiore, VP global EPC/utility at Hanwha Q Cells, said the company was satisfied with its partnership with GSE and would look to collaborate with them in the future.
