Hanwha Q CELLS finishes construction of Maulbeerwalde solar farm in Germany
Wednesday, Jun 20, 2018
Hanwha Q CELLS has completed construction of a 9.8 MW 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 (engineering, procurement, construction) and construction funding. Hanwha Q CELLS installed more than 34,000 Q.PLUS-G4.1 solar modules of its renowned product brand Q CELLS and finished the entire construction process on the 142,000 m2 site in under 10 weeks. The solar power plant is expected to feed around 10,000 MWh 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.

Hanwha Q CELLS – experienced EPC partner in Europe
The solar power plant in the German federal state of Brandenburg is the latest of many projects that Hanwha Q CELLS has successfully constructed as an EPC firm. The company looks at a track record of more than 1,200 MW of solar systems installed since its foundation in 2012. That includes installations in Germany, Portugal, the UK, Poland and Turkey, which are all delivering reliable returns on investment.

After subsidy cuts for utility-scale solar burdened the business segment over the past couple of years, the market has recently been gaining momentum again. “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.”
