May 28, 2014

Leading developer behind four new solar parks featuring high-quality HSL 60 Poly modules

Hanwha SolarOne Co. Ltd. (the “Company,” or “Hanwha SolarOne”) (Nasdaq: HSOL), a top-10 global photovoltaic manufacturer of high-quality, cost-competitive solar modules, today announced that four solar farms with a total of 60 MWp of Hanwha SolarOne’s high performance HSL 60 PV modules were completed by vogt solar ltd., a fully-owned subsidiary of ib vogt GmbH, in March 2014. The projects are located in the southern parts of the United Kingdom.

Spanning U.K. regions Devon, Kent, Manningtree and Hampshire, the solar farms have a total expected annual output of 60.5 MWh – enough to power more than 18,000 British homes.

ib vogt GmbH is specialized in the development, financing, turnkey realization, operation and asset management of large scale solar power plants.

“The implementation of several parks within a limited time frame and partly in parallel requires a high level of experience, tight planning and streamlined processes,” said Carl von Braun, Managing Director and CFO of ib vogt GmbH. “These projects represent the largest PV parks we have realized in U.K to date. With high quality products and reliable deliveries, Hanwha SolarOne strongly contributed to their successful and timely completion.”

In total, more than 230,000 high-quality HSL 60 Poly solar modules were supplied to the four projects, of which the first batch was delivered in December 2013.

“A long-time partner of vogt solar, we are proud to work with this solar farm pioneer once again to complete these impactful solar projects,” said Maengyoon Kim, Managing Director of Hanwha SolarOne GmbH. "With the four solar farms connected to the grid, our durable HSL 60 modules will generate clean, reliable solar energy in the U.K for many years to come.”

HSL-60 modules, characterized by excellent performance and extended durability, are backed by a 12 year workmanship warranty and a 25 year linear performance warranty.
