Spanish solar manufacturer Tamesol has revealed that it has become Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) certified.

The move means that installs carried out with the company’s modules will now be eligible for support under green support mechanisms such as the feed-in tariff.

Tamesol hopes that the “considerable investment” made in attaining MCS certification will significantly reinforce its presence in the UK solar market. The move builds on the company’s £15 million deal to provide 36MW of its modules for a project in Rushden, Northamptonshire.

The Catalan manufacturer has identified the UK as an important solar market and has announced that it will be exhibiting at next year’s Solar Energy UK event, showcasing its TM series of products to the market.

Commenting on the UK solar market’s potential, Patxi Otamendi, Tamesol’s CEO, said: “Based on our research into the UK market and our reception here so far, we believe that the UK will provide 50% of our income in 2014. We know the country and we have the necessary experience here. If we also consider our recent agreement with Solar Insurance and Finance (Solarif), the prospects are unlimited.”

The manufacturer recently reached an agreement with Solarif which allows it to guarantee module production as well as enable the possibility of finance for projects which include its modules.
