Hanwha SolarOne supplies Ikaros Solar UK projects


Hanwha SolarOne has completed a 9.5 MWp delivery of PV modules to Belgian solar company Ikaros Solar.

Ikaros will install the panels at two projects it is constructing in the U.K., a 3 MWp solar park in Hampshire and a 6.5 MWp in Oxfordshire, both in southern England.

Both parks are equipped with polycrystalline 72-cell modules from Hanwha Solar, the HSL 72 Poly, backed by a linear 25-year performance warranty.

Hanwha SolarOne’s latest delivery to Ikaros follows a 11.4 MWp shipment in January for a solar park built in England’s Norfolk County.

Ikaros operates internationally as a developer, engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company and wholesaler. Hanwha SolarOne has delivered its PV modules to a number of Ikaros projects in recent years. "Our track record in the utility-scale segment is substantial and we have tangible plans to realize further projects throughout our seven locations world-wide," said Ikaros CEO Yves Devis. "Looking ahead, the potential for solar parks both in the EU and in other parts of the world is significant. Throughout our previous projects, Hanwha SolarOne has demonstrated high quality as well as reliable services, including timely deliveries under tight deadlines. We look forward to continuing the cooperation."

Laurent Bodin, Hanwha SolarOne’s sales director for France and Benelux, added, "Ikaros Solar has installed close to 21 MWp of solar projects in U.K. within a relatively short period of time, an impressive achievement which confirms the high efficiency of the involved companies. As is often the case in our industry, the timeline requirements for the deliveries are challenging. But with advanced logistics systems, extensive experience and close communication with the customer, we are able to integrate the deliveries seamlessly in the construction process."
