Hanwha Q Cells modules in 15 MW UK project


German solar manufacturer Hanwha Q Cells – part of the South Korean Hanwha Group – supplied more than 58,000 of its modules for a 15 MW solar farm installed in the U.K. in March.

The Thalheim-based manufacturer supplied Q.PRO-G3 modules for the Ellough project developed by Lark Energy in Suffolk.

Solar developer Lark is part of the East Midlands-based Larkfleet construction and development group.

The UK is being seen as a growth market after the publication of a new solar strategy by the government’s Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) last month.

Market research agency NPD Solarbuzz raised its 2014 estimate of new solar capacity in the UK from 2.27 GW to 2.5 GW in March.
