The pipeline of 100MW of development projects are scheduled to be fully-developed and completed by early 2015.

Martifer Solar CEO Henrique Rodrigues said that new 100MW projects in development will position UK as a leading developer in the global PV market.

"Driven by momentum and our strategic objectives, Martifer Solar is reshaping its core business into a world-class solar developer across our geographies - the company celebrates this announcement as a significant milestone along the path to our future success in achieving this target," Rodrigues said.
