Martifer Solar is building a 78.4 MW portfolio of photovoltaic plants in the U.K. The five utility-scale facilities are located in the counties of Cambridgeshire, Devon, Nottingham and Swindon.
Martifer Solar has sold one of these projects located at Spittleborough Farm and entered into an engineering, procurement and construction agreement with Lightsource Renewable Energy to construct four additional projects. All five PV plants will be added to the Lightsource asset management portfolio in the U.K., and Martifer Solar will be retained under an operations and maintenance contract.
With project capacities between 9 MW and 24.67 MW, the five PV plants consist of 308,418 modules in total, installed in ground-mounted fixed structures. The full portfolio is expected to generate approximately 69.05 GWh of electricity per year.
‘We have been very active developers in the U.K. market and are looking forward to a continued healthy pipeline of utility-scale projects in development to be ready to build throughout 2014 and early 2015,’ says Joao Cunha, U.K. manager of Martifer Solar.
