Hanwha Q CELLS is partnering with French group VSB énergies nouvelles on a 4.5 MW project in southeastern France.
Hanwha Q CELLS, based in Thalheim, Germany, supplied 17,352 Q PRO-G2 260 Wp modules for the solar parl, located in the commune of Mazaugues, part of the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region.
VSB oversaw the planning and installation of the recently completed 4.5 MW project. While VSB said it chose Q CELLS panels due to their high quality and reliability, Hanwha Q CELLS also holds a Carbon Footprint certificate for France, also an important factor for VSB and the French market as a whole. Carbon Footprint certificates are a mandatory requirement to participate in French tenders for solar plants larger than 250 kW.
"VSB trusts Q CELLS solar modules, said VSB President Emmanuel Macqueron. "They are produced in Europe and have for us the important carbon certificate, which allows our customers to benefit from the feed-in tariff. With Hanwha Q CELLS, VSB has opted for a quality solution."
The Mazaugues plant will generate enough energy to supply some 4,000 homes.
The Nîmes-baed VSB énergie nouvelles, a subsidiary of WSB Neue Energien, headquartered in Dresden, Germany, has specialized in renewable energy projects, including solar and wind plants, since 2001.
