As part of the collaboration agreement, AGR will lead the project development, while Hanwha Q CELLS will supply ‘German-made’ PV modules and will be responsible for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of the plant.

To be operational in March 2014, the plant featuring 94,500 Q.Pro-G3 solar panels is estimated to generate around 22,445MWh of energy per year, which is enough to power 24,800 local households and curb around 9,650 tons of CO2 emissions annually.

Hanwha Q CELLS Vice President EPC Frank Danielzik said "The latest project strengthens its footprint in the UK market and underlines its position as full service provider for advanced power plant solutions – from design development through to the supply of high-class modules to EPC."

"Our high quality PV power plants make sense for UK investors, since they offer attractive and reliable returns on their investments," added Danielzik.

AGR’s one of the founders and co-owners Oliver Breidt said, "We are very happy to be cooperating with Hanwha Q CELLS on this project. Together we can deliver fast and reliable development and EPC capabilities as well as attractive LCOE."
