UK: Martifer Solar completes 28.1 MWp PV project


The five photovoltaic systems, which range between 4.4 and 6.63 MWp in size, are located in Cornwall, Hampshire, Devon and Wiltshire. Lightsource Renewable Energy has purchased all of them for around €40 million, a spokesperson told pv magazine.

Over 114,000 of Yingli Green Energy's photovoltaic modules were installed across an area of 75 hectares. Siemens provided the necessary inverters. The systems are expected to generate enough electricity for 18,000 people.

While Martifer Solar will undertake operations and maintenance, the systems will be added to Lightsource’s U.K. asset management portfolio. "The entire cluster was completed on time, fitting in line nicely with the ROC (Renewable Obligation Certificate) changes from April onwards," commented Nick Boyle, CEO of Lightsource Renewable Energy.

The Martifer Solar spokesperson further told pv magazine that it is planning to build more photovoltaic parks in the south west of the U.K. "We are currently assessing different opportunities to increase our pipeline for 2013. Each site size should be above 5MW," they said.
