Hanwha Q CELLS Korea
Founded in April 2011, Hanwha Q CELLS Korea aims to become a global leader in the downstream solar market, delivering integrated solar power plant solutions encompassing development, construction, and operation. Beginning with the completion of a rooftop solar power plant in Changwon in November 2011, we have been creating innovative and environmentally-friendly approaches to the construction
of solar power plants. For example, we have made use of land and facilities that have stood dormant, including drainage pump stations, unused roads, and sewage treatment centers. We are expanding the 1.5GW cell plant in Korea aiming to start manufacturing early 2016.
We have also succeeded in developing solar power generation projects overseas. We signed an agreement to build a large-scale 18MW solar power plant in Lisbon and Setubal, Portugal in November 2013, where 74,000 modules were installed on an area of 1,110,000m² , the size of 155 soccer fields.
With the completion of the project, the plant is expected to supply about 37GWh of electricity on an annual basis, enough to power 6,200 households. We are also pursuing other local partnerships and project acquisition opportunities to sustain our competitive advantage in the Asia Pacific region. We are also seeking to build solar power plants in emerging markets such as India and the Philippines, as they experience a rapid rise in power consumption due to economic growth and industrialization.
