70 MW under Construction at Solarcentury

Business is thriving at Solarcentury as it continues construction of 70 MWp of solar PV installations across the UK.

Its in-house team has developed 38 MWp of this over the past 6 months. The latest site to obtain planning consent is the Stratton Hall Solar Park – an 11.6MWp site near Felixstowe, Suffolk.

The majority of the installations are ground mounted PV parks, all of which are due for completion by the end of March 2013.

This new wave of sites marks the start of Solarcentury as a Developer as well as a pure EPC contractor. To date, the company has built 12 utility-scale solar parks and is still keen to maintain operating as a contractor.

“After the 70 MWp is completed, we aim to keep up the pace with an additional 100MWp this year” says Frans van den Heuvel, CEO, Solarcentury. “We are always interested in offers of developed sites and to hear from potential investors.”

The company, which started in 1998, has been a market leader in the UK by virtue of its engineering and programme management teams’ ability to design and build world-class systems.

The company has taken its vast experience and applied it to the development of solar parks. It has paid particular attention to site selection with low visual impact and protection of the natural environment. To date, it has had a 100% success rate with its planning applications.

Investors are receiving a quality, secure asset and a serious return on investment. Now that the ROC level has been set by the Government, this is set to continue in 2013.
