Hanwha Q CELLS Completes 13.3 MW Solar Power Plant in Portugal
- PV power plant supplying clean energy to 5,475 households
- Hanwha Q CELLS acts as EPC and supplied 51,000 Q.PRO-G3 modules
[Montijo, Portugal / Thalheim, Germany, 12 August, 2014] Europe´s largest provider of photovoltaic solutions, Hanwha Q CELLS, announced today 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 Q.PRO-G3 modules. The power plant has been fully connected to the grid in 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 has built the plant within 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 reduced the construction time for one MWp from 3.9 days to less than a day. The fast construction as well as the successive connection to the grid thanks to modular power plant construction significantly reduce costs, ensure earliest possible yields and thus enable a quick return on investment (ROI).

As one of only a few players, Hanwha Q CELLS offers all development as well as planning and construction work from one source and provides financial stability as part of the Korean Top-Ten and Global FORTUNE 500 company Hanwha Group. The PV farm is yet another proof point for the company´s growing global footprint, especially highlighting its expertise as an EPC.
