Hanwha SolarOne to supply 11.5 MW to Ikaros Solar
Friday, Jan 03, 2014
Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. (the “Company”, or “Hanwha SolarOne”), a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, cost-competitive solar modules, today announced that it will supply 11.5 MW of high quality solar modules to Ikaros Solar Belgium NV (the “Ikaros Solar”). The modules are scheduled for delivery in January and February 2014. Ikaros intends to install the modules in a solar park in Norfolk County, United Kingdom. Hanwha SolarOne will supply its 72-cell module HSL-72, characterized by excellent real-life performance and extended durability.
“The partnership is based on mutual respect between two reliable companies that share the highest quality requirements. We look forward to contributing to more successful Ikaros projects in the future.”
Ikaros Solar operates as a project planner and wholesaler and is active in both large-scale and rooftop segments. Based in Belgium, Ikaros Solar has evolved into an international company with a global network of offices. Hanwha SolarOne has delivered high-quality PV modules to a number of solar projects constructed by Ikaros Solar.
“In Hanwha SolarOne, we have found a partner that can ensure both high quality and financial stability,” said Yves Devis, CEO at Ikaros Solar. “The PV modules from Hanwha SolarOne have demonstrated high performance and durability in our past projects. With the improved features of the new HSL-module series providing further benefits, Hanwha SolarOne was a natural choice for our latest large-scale project.”
“This project is the result of a strong, long-term collaboration with Ikaros Solar, a leading solar company in the Benelux region,” said Laurent Bodin, Director Sales France and Benelux at Hanwha SolarOne. “The partnership is based on mutual respect between two reliable companies that share the highest quality requirements. We look forward to contributing to more successful Ikaros projects in the future.”
Ikaros intends to start the construction of the new solar park in January 2014 and connect the new solar park to the grid by the end of March 2014. The solar park will include 38,334 modules supplied by Hanwha SolarOne.
