Chinese PV developer ReneSola has provided PV modules totalling more than 31MW to power a commercial solar plant in the UK. The company has delivered 31.7MW of its Virtus PV module range for Spanish solar construction firm Isolux Corsan for the grid-connected PV plant in England. The commercial solar project marks Isolux Corsan’s fourth solar plant for the UK.

ReneSola said it has delivered 9.7MW of Virtus I PV modules and 22MW of Virtus II modules to Isolux Corsan's project site location in Suffolk, England. The company said the project used ReneSola PV modules exclusively for the plant, which was connected to the grid in December 2013.

Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer, said: "This shipment boosts our market share in the region, as we become a top supplier in the UK's growing solar market.

Furthermore, working with Isolux Corsan, one of the industry's top constructors of turnkey EPC PV power projects, will open new doors for supplying modules to other large-scale projects. Isolux Corsan's selection of our modules speaks to the quality of our products and our brand image among customers. We will continue to enhance our products and customer relationships to supply additional large-scale products in the UK and worldwide."

Antonio Gonzalez Torralbo, Isolux Corsan's chief executive of EPC activity, added: "This is the fourth solar park we've built in the UK. We're thrilled to work with a top-tier PV supplier like ReneSola. We chose ReneSola modules because of their compliance with relevant anti-dumping measures, strong reputation for quality and comprehensive insurance."

The news marks another Chinese solar firm announcing it has supplied PV modules for solar projects in the UK this year. Earlier this week, Trina Solar announced it has supplied 4,000 PV modules for a UK social housing project in Scotland.
