UK developer AGRenewables (AGR) has teamed up with South Korea’s Hanwha Q Cells on a 23.4MW PV project in Stowbridge, Cambridgeshire.
The ground-mounted plant will feature 94,500 of Q Cells’ QPro-G3 solar panels, which the company said would generate 22,445MWh of electricity annually.
As well as supplying the modules, Hanwha Q Cells will be the main engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services contractor for the project, which is scheduled for completion in March this year.
“The Stowbridge project strengthens our footprint in the attractive UK market and underlines our position as full service provider for advanced power plant solutions – from design development through to the supply of high-class modules to EPC,” said Frank Danielzik, vice president of EPC at Hanwha Q Cells.
“Our high quality PV power plants make sense for UK investors, since they offer attractive and reliable returns on their investments.”
“We are very happy to be cooperating with Hanwha Q Cells on this project,” said Oliver Breidt, one of the founders and co-owners of AGRenewables. “Together we can deliver fast and reliable development and EPC capabilities as well as attractive LCOE [levelised cost of electricity].”
Q Cells said the competitive LCOE of the power plant was a consequence of its low balance of system cost, low running cost and “best in class” yields.
