Hanwha Q CELLS Completes 13.3 MW Solar Power Plant in Portugal

Hanwha Q CELLS announced that it has completed its first solar park in Portugal as engineering, procurement and construction provider (EPC). The installation in the municipality of Montijo (South-East of Lisbon) features around 51,000 of Q CELLS modules and was fully connected to the grid as of May 2014.

The 13.3-MWp plant is expected to provide clean energy to some 5,475 local households with an average consumption of 4,000 kWh per year. Hanwha Q CELLS said that it was able to build the plant in just five weeks, with an additional time for connecting it to the grid and completing all test runs.

Since 2009, Hanwha Q CELLS´ EPC team has been working to reduce the construction time for power plants.  Over the five years time, the company said that it reduced construction time 1-MWp from 3.9 days to less than a day.

Quick construction as well as the successive connection to the grid significantly reduces costs and ensures earliest possible yields and thus enable a quick return on investment (ROI), said Hanwha Q CELLS.

To date, the company has installed more than 600 MW of solar power plants with outputs greater than 1 MWp since 2007.

"The PV system in Portugal proves Hanwha Q CELLS´ expertise as full-service-provider regarding the development and EPC of PV power plants," said Frank Danielzik, Vice President Development/Sales & EPC at Hanwha Q CELLS.
