Hanwha SolarOne to supply 20K modules to PV park in AP
For the construction of a PV park project in Kadiri of Ananthapuram district in Andhra Pradesh Korean module provider Hanwha SolarOne has provided more than 20,000 modules. Hanwha SolarOne has partnered with Germany's AIC Project GmbH and its joint verture AIC Solar Projects (AICSP) for the solar park project in 20 acres. Kadiri is 160 kilometers northeast of Bangalore.
Hanwha supported the project with 21,120 Hanwha Solar modules. AIC Project and AICSP carried out the construction of the facility on behalf of Indian global IT services company ValueLabs LLP, completing it in 12 weeks' time. Commenting on the project, Maeng Yoon Kim, Managing Director at Hanwha SolarOne GmbH in Munich, said that the realisation of the PV park in Kadiri has been a truly international project, demonstrating the increasingly global nature of the PV market. Emerging markets represent huge potential, but also new challenges, he added.
The plant, which is expected to generate 8.4 million kWh per year, has been connected to the grid. In addition to the solar project in India, Hanwha also supported AIC Project with more than 38,000 modules to develop three solar parks with a combined capacity of 9 mw in Germany in March.
