Aquila Capital Acquires 9.9-MW Solar Plant in UK

Aquila Capital has acquired a 9.9-megawatt photovoltaic park in Sheffield in the UK for an undisclosed sum.

The project was developed by British developer Blue Planet Solar Holdings Ltd. in cooperation with Pfalzsolar GmbH, which also operated as the contractor. The plant was grid connected in March 2015 and qualifies for the ROC 1.4 support scheme.

The park benefits from high quality equipment with poly-cristalline modules from REC, inverters from Sungrow and fixed mounting system from CWF. Pfalzsolar GmbH is a subsidiary of Pfalzwerke Aktiengesellschaft, a leading German EPC and O&M provider who has become active in the UK photovoltaic market in 2014.

The transaction increases Aquila Capital’s extensive track record in photovoltaic investments to 505MW.
