The sites vary from 20.5MWp to 2.5 MWp and all were connected under the Renewable Obligation schemes that came to an end on March 31st. The £88m funding for the sites was provided by German bank Bayern LB.
“Through the collaboration of our sub-contractors, Land & Power, Solfen, 33 KV, Mind4Energy and Secure-Site, we have created a team that is both nimble in the deployment of sites whilst maintaining quality levels which I believe are second to none,” said Mark Hogan, Managing Director of WIRSOL. “We have used OST as our technical advisors across all sites, both through the placing of the £88m debt and the ongoing construction monitoring.”
WIRSOL now is looking forward to further deployment of solar in the UK under non-subsidized schemes and is building a large portfolio in Australia. Last month WIRSOL announced a 198 MWp solar deal across three sites which is fully funded and financed, the largest solar deal to date in Australia with construction starting immediately. The company is looking at other projects in Netherlands, Spain, France and Germany.
