Chinese solar manufacturer, Hanwha SolarOne has shipped 9.5MW of its modules to Ikaros Solar for two UK solar farm projects.

The modules were installed at a 3MW solar farm in Hampshire and a 6.5MW project in Oxfordshire.

The delivery builds on the 11.5MW that Hanwha SolarOne delivered to Ikaros back in January this year for a project in Norfolk.

“Our track record in the utility-scale segment is substantial and we have tangible plans to realise further projects throughout our seven locations worldwide. Looking ahead, the potential for solar parks both in the EU and in other parts of the world is significant,” said Yves Devis, group CEO for Ikaros Solar.

“Ikaros Solar has installed close to 21 MW of solar projects in UK within a very short period of time; an impressive achievement which confirms the high efficiency of the involved companies,” said Laurent Bodin, sales director for France and Benelux at Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. “As is often the case in our industry, the timeline requirements for the deliveries are challenging. But with advanced logistics systems, extensive experience and close communication with the customer, we are able to integrate the deliveries seamlessly in the construction process.”

Both of the projects used Hanwha SolarOne’s 72-cell modules, the HSL 72 Poly.
