Sungrow has supplied its featured 1500V turnkey inverter solutions tailored for North American market to Techren-2, a 200 MW solar project in Nevada.
Much of the state is covered in sun-bathed desert, making Nevada one of the nation’s best regions for solar power potential. The project is expected to be grid-connected by the end of 2019 and creates hundreds of jobs for the local community. Once fully operational, it will power local residences at large and increase the share of Nevada’s electricity generation from solar resources compared to other energy sources, said Sungrow in a statement.
The project is in an arid high plateau which can experience temperatures in summer exceeding 40 degrees Celsius. Sungrow’s 1500V central inverter SG2500U-MV applied onsite, characterizes the performance from -30 degrees Celsius (-22 F) to 60 degrees Celsius (140 F).
The turnkey solution with the central inverter, transformer and auxiliary power supply, enables lower initial investment on installation and commissioning and caters to the complex requirements of the American grid code, making it the ideal solution for this remarkable project.
Notably, the 2.75 MW turnkey solutions were installed by Swinerton for the first utility-scale solar plant in Wyoming in early September. Additionally, the solutions are operational for 205 MW project in California’s Central Valley.
The EPC company Swinerton Renewable Energy is providing turnkey engineering, procurement and construction services for the project developer and asset management service provider Clenera LLC.
“Swinerton is excited to partner with Sungrow to build this landmark project,” said George Hershman, President of Swinerton Renewable Energy.
“We take pride in being a part of the 200 MW solar project and we are pleased to bring clean energy to the great State of Nevada,” said Jack Gu, President of Sungrow PV & Energy Storage Division. “The North American solar market is vital and full of opportunities and we are dedicated to providing excellent products and solutions from coast to coast as we charge toward a brighter future,” he added.
Reportedly, the company will unveil its new product portfolios including SG3150U for North American solar market in 2019 and onward.
