Hanwha SolarOne modules equip 20.5 MW UK solar park


Hanwha SolarOne will supply the modules for a U.K. solar park developed by Vogt Solar, a subsidiary of Germany’s IB Vogt.

The high-performing HSL-60 PV modules will be installed in one of the largest solar parks in the U.K., although the companies did not provide details of the plant’s exact location.

"We are very pleased to work with IB Vogt once again, as we continue to expand our presence in the United Kingdom – one of our key markets in Europe," said Hanwha SolarOne managing director Maengyoon Kim.

"With our high-quality PV modules, flexible ordering structure and capable sales team, we are ideally positioned to meet the United Kingdom’s solar power needs. We look forward to continuing to serve this important market in the future."

IB Vogt specializes in the development, realization and operation of large scale PV power plants on a global level. Upon completion, the project will represent IB Vogt’s largest solar park in the U.K. to date.

Hanwha SolarOne delivered the first batch of HSL-60 modules in December and said it would complete the total shipment early in the first quarter of 2014.

Hanwha SolarOne has supplied modules to a number of large-scale solar parks realized by IB Vogt over the past two years. These include several projects in the U.K., including the 9.8 MW Manston PV park in Kent, the 6.2 MW Langunnett PV park in Cornwall, a 5 MW PV park in Wellow on the Isle of Wight, and a 5 MW PV park in Oving, West Sussex.

In addition to these projects, Hanwha SolarOne has also supplied 9.5 MW of solar modules to IB Vogt for use in the Thunpadel solarpark in Lower Saxony, Germany.
