German solar developer ib vogt has completed about 30MWp of new solar power installations in the UK during the first quarter of 2013.
ib vogt completed four new solar power plants in March in the UK, with a total rated output of about 30 MWp, which takes the company’s UK capacity to over 55MWp.
PV-Tech’s sister site Solar Power Portal reports that two of the new completed projects, an 8MW development in Pembrokeshire and a 5MW site in Pyworthy, Devon, add to the existing 16MW of capacity the company managed to complete before the Renewable Obligation rate was revised downwards on 1 April 2013.
A further 10MWp was added through an installation at Manston Farm in Kent and Langunnett in Cornwall which was over 6 MWp in size.
The four new solar parks will supply over 8,100 households with clean electricity, saving 14,500 tonnes of CO2 a year.
The UK arm of the company will continue to service the solar parks through ongoing operation and maintenance contracts.
The company is expected to develop an additional 100MW of capacity in the UK during the remainder of 2013.
