While five of the new solar farms were sold to investors before completion, the remaining two plants were built for direct customers.

Primrose Solar Holdings acquired two plants in Dorset and one each in Norfolk and Wales, with a combined capacity of 39MW. Bluefield Solar Income Fund purchased a 19MW plant in Wiltshire developed by Wirsol Solar UK.

The company aims to build more than 200MW in the UK by year end, based on robust development pipeline of 150MW.

Conergy constructed the UK’s first large solar farm (5MW) in 2011, and has now built or supplied large-scale plants with installed capacity of more than 100MW.
