Engineering, procurement and construction contractor Solarcentury has announced 70MWp of solar PV projects across the UK, reports PV-Tech's sister site Solar Power Portal.
The majority of the installations are ground mounted PV parks, all of which are due to be completed by the end of March 2013. The latest site to obtain planning consent was the 11.6MWp Stratton Hall Solar Park near Felixstowe in Suffolk.
“After the 70MWp is completed, we aim to keep up the pace with an additional 100MWp this year,” said Frans van den Heuvel, CEO, Solarcentury. “We are always interested in offers of developed sites and to hear from potential investors.”
Solarcentury said it paid particular attention to those with low visual impact and to protecting the natural environment in order to qualify for the UK government's Renewable Obligation Certificate.
To date, Solarcentury claims it has had a 100% success rate with its planning applications.
