Hanwha SolarOne gains steam in UK

A PV array on the UK's Isle of Wight.
Two ground-mounted PV arrays totaling 16MW, kitted out by Hanwha SolarOne and built by Germany’s ib vogt, are on track for completion this month, the companies say.

Berlin-based ib vogt has quietly emerged as one of the biggest engineering, procurement and construction players in the booming UK PV market.

Having already built several arrays around the country, it will wrap up work this month on a 9.8MW project in Kent and a 6.2MW project in Cornwall, which will collectively feed more than 16.3GWh of electricity into the grid each year.
