Cowdown Solar

EMS has been managing this 40 MWp grid connected solar PV plant since 2017. We have retendered the O&M contract in 2018 and supported our client’s refinancing of the project in 2019 to a new lender.

The solar farm was commissioned under the ROC subsidy regime in 2016 and generates around 40GWh of electricity per year; enough for 75% of the needs of the town of Andover next to the site.

This site is one of the largest Huawei inverter installations in the UK and contains a number of environmental schemes including a working apiary for the Andover Beekeepers Association.

EMS support the client with close technical management of the long-term asset strategy, helping to balance the full lifecycle plan against the financial model.
