Hanwha Q CELLS Co., Ltd. announced that it has completed construction of a 9.8MW solar power plant in Brandenburg, Germany. The Maulbeerwalde solar farm has been developed by the German renewable energy developer Green Energy 3000. Hanwha Q CELLS was responsible for EPC and construction funding. The solar power plant is expected to feed around 10,000MWh of clean electricity per year into the grid. That will be enough to satisfy the electricity demand of 5,300 households and save more than 5,000 tons of carbon emissions per year.
"Today, utility-scale solar is attractive in many European countries, simply because solar electricity is absolutely price competitive," explains Mauro Di Fiore, Head of the EPC Unit at Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH. "The Maulbeerwalde power plant is an excellent example that solar power plants make economic sense in Germany and in many other European countries as well." Hanwha Q CELLS is currently working on EPC projects in Poland, Turkey, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal. "The potential is huge," added Mauro Di Fiore before emphasizing that "For investors and developers, what counts is that they work with an experienced EPC partner who reliably delivers quality components and meets deadlines. Hanwha Q CELLS delivers just that."
