Bicker Fen solar park (previously Manor Farm), owned by Innova and Schroders Greencoat JV ISG Renewables, has been successfully energised in the UK.

The 22.6MWp site, originally developed by Innova, was granted planning permission in May 2022 and awarded a Contract for Difference (CfD) by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy in their July 2022 auction.

Innova’s delivery team managed the design, module procurement, and the EPC and ICP construction contracts.

Bicker Fen Solar Park was subsequently acquired by ISG Renewables in September 2023, as part of the JV’s ambition to finance, construct, and operate 5GW of renewable energy capacity over the next three to five years.

Now energisation of the site is complete, it will be handed over to Innova’s in-house asset management team to oversee its operation and maintenance alongside Carn Nicholas, which was acquired by ISG Renewables in February 2023.

Andrew Kaye, joint chief executive and founder at Innova, said: "After a successful construction period, we are delighted to have energised Bicker Fen Solar Park.


"The energy now being generated from Bicker Fen will be enough to power 2,266 households in the local area, and will save 5,020 tonnes of carbon each year, taking the UK another step towards Net Zero and reducing its reliance on fossil fuels.


“We look forward to seeing the positive impact Bicker Fen Solar Park has on the environment and local communities in the months and years to come, as well as continuing to strengthen and develop our relationship with Schroders Greencoat.”
