vogt group, advised by former Q-Cells CEO Anton Milner, has won the contract for the UK’s first solar photovoltaic power plant. The 5MW installation will be located on a 12.8 hectare site on a quarry in the southwest of England.

With this step, the vogt group is the first German PV projector to be active in the UK. The company is also set for success in the overseas markets by enlisting the expertise of Anton Milner, whose experience in the global PV market will undoubtedly stand the German company in good stead.

“As an Englishman and industry insider, I naturally find this entry into the market extremely interesting and very promising. I will support these ventures in the new market environment and look forward to accompanying the vogt group in this step,” commented Milner.

This news came in just before the opening of the Doing Solar Business in the UK event, which is being held in Munich on June 8th.
