Hanwha Q CELLS has teamed up with AGRenewables (AGR), to power up a 24.3MW photovoltaic power plant for Ingenious Clean Energy in record-time. More than 94,500 Q.PRO-G3 solar panels were installed in only three weeks. The ground-mounted plant will generate around 22,445MWh of clean energy per year; enough to power 24,800 local households and save approximately 9,650 tons of carbon emissions each year.
AGR led the project development of the Stowbridge project. Hanwha Q CELLS was in the lead for supplying its PV modules as well as construction and delivery of the PV park under an EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) contract. Ingenious Clean Energy will sell the clean electricity from the PV Park under the 1.6 ROCs scheme.
Sebastian Speight, MD of Ingenious Clean Energy, said: “Putting the Stowbridge PV Park in operations ahead of the changes in ROC´s scheme was one of our top priorities – and quite a challenge given the heavy rainfalls in the initial constructions stages. Thanks to the full commitment and outstanding work of Hanwha Q CELLS and AGR the Power Plant was grid connected on time and has since been delivering very attractive and reliable yields.”
“We are very happy to have teamed up with Hanwha Q CELLS on this project in such a high-flying way,” said Oliver Breidt, one of the founders and co-owners of AGRenewables. “Together we can deliver fast and reliable development and EPC capabilities as well as attractive LCOE.”
“The Stowbridge project underlines that investors can rely on Hanwha Q CELLS to deliver complete power plant solution services and reliable ROI – even in challenging conditions” said Frank Danielzik, Hanwha Q CELLS’ Vice President Development/Sales & EPC.
