It has won the contract to build the Kupehau solar project, consisting of a 60 MW solar farm and 240 MWh of battery energy storage system on the island of Oahu. Hanwha Energy will be responsible for building the plant and operating it for 20 years.
A spokesperson for Hanwha Energy said: “The project is quite meaningful in that we have consecutively won orders for solar and energy storage systems for power generation facilities in the USA.”
