The solar farms include an 18 MW array at Hern Bay and a 17 MW facility at Littlebourne in Kent as well as an 11.5 MW facility at Ninfield in Sussex.
The projects were developed by ib vogt GmbH, with vogt solar Ltd. also acting as engineering, procurement and construction contractor. The firm will also provide operations and maintenance services.
Construction on all of the plants started in July, and they are expected to be connected to the grid by the end of the year, which will qualify them for the Renewable Obligation Certificate scheme. Combined, the three projects are expected to generate over 48 GWh of electricity per year.
‘All three projects are on excellent sites in the southeast of England with high levels of sunlight,’ says Giles Clark, CEO of Primrose Solar. ‘The sites are well screened, and we will work to enhance biodiversity and to improve ecology on the sites.’
