Martifer Solar, a subsidiary of the Portuguese company Martifer SGPS, is building photovoltaic systems with a total of 50 MW in the UK. The plants are to be built in Wiltshire, Swindon, Kent, Devon and Hampshire.

The projects confirm the ambitions of Martifer Solar in the British photovoltaics market, says Joao Cunha, Country Manager of Martifer Solar in the UK: "It (the U.K) is truly becoming a high-potential country for this industry, unlike much of Europe, where the solar market is already mature."
