- Hanwha Q CELLS GmbH Hanwha Q CELLS Connects Polish Solar Plant to the Grid
Hanwha Q CELLS’ Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) division connected the first megawatt (MW) of an extensive solar portfolio in Poland. Located in Smętowo Graniczne, this 1MW plant was built to Hanwha Q CELLS’ stringent quality, design, engineering, and construction standards.
The completion of this plant comes at a time as Hanwha Q CELLS finalizes the acquisition of 30MW of shovel-ready PV projects throughout Poland, bringing the company’s total solar portfolio up to 45MW in the country. This portfolio represents 15% of all solar projects secured through the RES auction system.
Hanwha Q CELLS’ solar projects in Poland are spread across 50 solar plants, awarded with a 15-year Contract for Differences (CfD) agreement from the Polish Energy Regulator (URE), which secures a fixed price for every kWh produced by these plants.
The Hanwha Q CELLS EPC team is very active in Poland, having identified the country as an appealing solar market due to the country’s PV potential and the government’s competitive auction process. 360MW worth of solar power capacity has been awarded according to Polskie Towarzystwo Fotowoltaiki, the Polish Solar Energy Association. The association also estimates that Poland’s total solar energy capacity could reach 1.2GW by 2020.

- Hanwha Tecwhin Plants Its Flag in Europe and North America
In September of 2018, Hanwha Techwin took part in two concurrent security exhibitions in North America and Europe, demonstrating its strong position in the security technology industry in both continents.
Security Essen, held in Essen, Germany, is the largest security device exhibition in the DACH region of Europe, covering Germany, Austria, and Switzerland while Global Security Exchange (GSX) is a major North American security event that takes place in a different American city each year.
At Security Essen, which attracted over 1,000 exhibitors from 40 countries, Hanwha Techwin showcased its award-winning Wisenet series of security cameras along with a selection of multi-direction, thermal, and scanning cameras. One popular attraction at the Hanwha Techwin booth was a darkened room where visitors could try and identify different objects with a thermal camera. Hanwha Techwin’s scanning camera was also of particular interest to the European audience at Security Essen as the technology can be used to identify damage to the countless shipping containers that go in and out of Europe’s many seaports.
At GSX, which was held in Las Vegas this year, Hanwha Techwin also showcased the Wisenet series, particularly the Wisenet X Plus, which has a modular design that allows for easy installation while also reducing the total cost of ownership. GSX 2018 featured 550 companies and attracted 20,000 security experts from around the world.
“Europe and North America are core markets for many security companies,” says a spokesperson for Hanwha Techwin. “We were able to solidify our position in the European market by participating in Security Essen while GSX 2018 will help us increase our rising market share in North America.”

- Hanwha Life Insurance Vietnam Ltd. Hanwha Life Vietnam Taps Drivers for “Love Hanwha, Love Your Car” Brand Campaign
Hanwha Life Vietnam recently kicked off “Love Hanwha, Love Your Car”, a street-level campaign to increase brand awareness in the country. Through this campaign, the company is looking to catch the eye of everyday people through stickers attached to the campaign participants’ vehicles.
Hanwha Life Vietnam employees and customers are encouraged to affix “I Love Hanwha” stickers onto their cars in exchange for fuel subsidies and special gifts throughout the duration of the campaign that will run for six months. The amount of fuel subsidies that drivers will receive is determined by how prominently the sticker is displayed on their cars.
In October, drivers participating in the campaign will also get to participate in a special Facebook photo contest. They just have to post a photo of their vehicle in a public place with the sticker clearly visible, and send the link to the campaign organizers for the chance to win prizes like suitcases, umbrellas, and travel pillows.
Response to Hanwha Life Vietnam’s campaign has been positive and nearly 500 car owners have registered to participate so far. Branding of cars is an effective promotional method in Vietnam due to the high amount of vehicle traffic. Cars with eye-catching branding are able to attract attention as they drive around, increasing brand awareness at a very low cost.
