Renewable Energy Limited has struck a deal with Juwi Renewable Energies for its solar project in Cornwall.
The engineering, procurement and construction contract means Juwi will assume responsibility for the supply, installation and commissioning of equipment at the Mendennick solar project.
The deal is in addition to a further five year contract to provide long term operations and maintenance services.
The move comes after Renewable Energy Limited vowed to increase its current 111MW output at its UK operational energy projects across wind, bio-power and solar to 300MW within three years.
Renewable Energy Limited said construction has already begun at the project, which is due to be completed by 2015.
REG’s chief executive Andrew Whalley said: “Mendennick is part of a 132.4MW pipeline of consented wind, biopower and solar projects at various stages of procurement and construction which, once commissioned, will increase REG’s total renewable power generating capacity to 243.6MW.
“We are therefore on course to materially increase our diversified portfolio of 111MW of operational renewable energy projects, and in the process transform REG’s revenue profile and already substantial asset backing.”
Once the project has been commissioned, it will generate around 2.7GWh per year and will be operated under the small scale feed-in tariff regime.
