In spite of constant bad weather, the experienced BayWa r.e. project team were
able to construct and commission the 18MWp solar plant in just nine weeks.
Matthias Taft, Managing Director of BayWa r.e., commented on this: " The rapid
implementation of the Whitland solar farm shows that our project team and
technical know-how put us in an excellent position. This enables us to finance
even larger projects without difficulties. This in turn ensures commissioning
on time. Together, this results in a dynamic and economical project
implementation at every project stage  -  from engineering and construction
to the ultimate project sale to institutional investors. "

The Whitland solar farm was established on a 28 hectare in the Welsh village
of the same name. It comprises 69,000 polycrystalline modules on freestanding
supports. Annually, this plant will generate around 17 million kWh green power
and can cover the electricity demand of around 5,000 households. Apart from
completed projects, BayWa r.e. has significant projects in the pipeline for
Great Britain.
