Hanwha Q CELLS has put the 8.1MW "Tower Hill" solar farm into operation in South Gloucestershire, in the Southwest of England. Hanwha Q CELLS, owner of the project rights for the Tower Hill farm, managed the EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) and will be responsible for O&M (Operations & Maintenance). Only eight weeks after construction started in January 2015, the solar farm was fully constructed, grid connected and put into operation in March 2015 - on time to operate under the 1.4 ROC scheme.
The 8.1MW Tower Hill solar park is comprised of around 30,650 of Q CELLS' Q.PRO-G3 PV modules with power classes of 265W. The park has been built in Hanwha Q CELLS´ modular construction scheme. The park is expected to produce around 8MWh of clean energy per year, enough to power more than 2,400 average households in England. Thus the park will save approximately 4,100 tons of carbon dioxide per year.
Mauro Di Fiore, Vice President Global EPC/ Utility at Hanwha Q CELLS said: "We are very happy to add the Tower Hill solar park to our portfolio of timely built, successfully operating and fully owned PV parks in the UK, which now total 53MW. This latest park further evidences that Hanwha Q CELLS is the right partner for reliable power plant solutions that pay off."
