Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. (the "Company", or "Hanwha SolarOne"), a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, cost-competitive solar modules, announced the completion of a 9.5 MWp delivery of high quality solar modules to Belgian headquartered solar company Ikaros Solar. The modules have been installed in a 3 MWp solar park in Hampshire and a 6.5 MWp in Oxfordshire, both UK. In January 2014, Hanwha SolarOne had already completed a 11.4 MWp delivery to a solar park realized by Ikaros in Norfolk County, UK.
Headquartered in Belgium, Ikaros Solar operates internationally as a developer, EPC company and wholesaler. Hanwha SolarOne has delivered high-quality PV modules to a number of projects realized by Ikaros over the last years. 'Our track record in the utility-scale segment is substantial and we have tangible plans to realize further projects throughout our seven locations world-wide. Looking ahead, the potential for solar parks both in the EU and in other parts of the World is significant,' said Yves Devis, Group CEO at Ikaros Solar. 'Throughout our previous projects, Hanwha SolarOne has demonstrated high quality as well as reliable services, including timely deliveries under tight deadlines. We look forward to continuing the cooperation.'
Both parks are equipped with polycrystalline 72-cell modules from Hanwha Solar, the HSL 72 Poly, characterized by excellent output under real-life conditions and backed by a linear 25-year performance warranty.
'Ikaros Solar has installed close to 21 MWp of solar projects in UK within a relatively short period of time, an impressive achievement which confirms the high efficiency of the involved companies,' said Laurent Bodin, Sales Director for France and Benelux at Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. 'As is often the case in our industry, the timeline requirements for the deliveries are challenging. But with advanced logistics systems, extensive experience and close communication with the customer, we are able to integrate the deliveries seamlessly in the construction process.'
