Abakus solar plans 18 MW of PV plants for UK


Abakus will be responsible for both EPC and Operation & Maintenance services for the project, owned by Inazin Power. Together with Low Carbon, the company will install a 7 MWp park on the Isle of Wight and in Dorset, respectively, and one 4 MWp park also in Dorset.

Overall, 74,390 of Trina Solar’s polycrystalline photovoltaic modules are expected to be used, alongside central inverter solutions and transformers from LTi REEnergy GmbH. Meanwhile, abakus will provide the necessary mounting systems. The three parks are scheduled to be operational this March.

In 2011, abakus solar completed a 5 MWp photovoltaic park in Swindon. Low Carbon provided funding the development of this, and the three aforementioned projects, all owned by Inazin Power. It is also providing the construction equity, while debt financing is coming from Investec. Revenues will be generated from both the sale of the generated electricity and Renewable Obligation Certificates (ROCs).

"Together with Low Carbon we are looking forward to build one of the largest portfolios of solar photovoltaic power plants within the UK," stated Roland Wigger, head of sales for large scale projects at abakus solar AG.

He added, "abakus solar will further broaden its engagement in the UK in 2013 as an EPC and O&M contractor for large scale solar power plants and will continue the fruitful relationship with Low Carbon."
