With industry veteran and former Q-Cells CEO Anton Milner as advisor, vogt group is planning the UK’s first solar power plant. The 5MW installation will be located on a 12.8 hectare site on a quarry in the southwest of England, and on its completion, the vogt group will be the first German PV developer to conduct such a scale of business in the United Kingdom.
The vogt group seems to be eyeing up overseas markets, having enlisted the expertise of Anton Milner, whose experience in the global PV market will undoubtedly stand the German company in good stead.
“As an Englishman and industry insider, I naturally find this entry into the market extremely interesting and very promising. I will support these ventures in the new market environment and look forward to accompanying the vogt group in this step,” commented Milner.
The news is well timed; coinciding with the Doing Solar Business in the UK event, which is being held in Munich on June 8th, it seems that the reach of the solar industry is penetrating those markets that might once have been seen as unlikely contenders.
