Hanwha SolarOne to supply 80 MW in Chile


Hanwha SolarOne has signed a deal with an unnamed PV developer for the supply of 80 MW of solar PV modules to a project in Chile's Antofagasta region.

The delivery, totalling 258,000 of the company's new HSL 72 S Poly modules, will begin in the first quarter of 2015 and is scheduled to be completed in the second quarter. The generated power will be sold under a power purchase agreement (PPA).

Hanwha SolarOne said its new S Series modules feature a four busbar design, yielding more efficient energy production and industry leading weak light and high temperature performance.

The news follows impressive figures released in December by Chile's Center for Renewable Energy (CER) showing a 50-fold increase in completed projects in the course of 2014 to 326 MW-ac.

South Korean solar conglomerate Hanwha Solar Holdings announced last month that it was merging its two brands – Hanwha SolarOne and Hanwha Q Cells – into one consolidated company in a move valued at around $2 billion.

The group also said in December that it would build a $12 million module facility in South Korea. The 230 MW-capacity plant is scheduled to begin production in the second quarter of 2015.
