Martifer Solar is almost doubling is current PV project business in the UK with plans to build five solar farms with a total capacity of around 50MW.
The firm said that it intended to ensure the sale of the ready-to-build projects during the licensing process running until the end of 2013, located in southern regions of Wiltshire, Swindon, Kent, Devon and Hampshire. 
“Following the development of a large-scale PV cluster in this year’s first quarter, these projects reinforce Martifer Solar’s ambition to develop PV projects in the UK, said João Cunha, country manager of Martifer Solar in the United Kingdom. It is becoming a truly high potential country for this industry, unlike much of Europe, where the solar market is already mature.”
The company has previously developed and installed 28.1MW of plants in the UK with the entire portfolio of five plants having previously been sold to Lightsource Renewable Energy.
