Sungrow Adds 95 MWac of PV Installations to Its Kazakhstan Portfolio

A Closer Look at the Landmark Plants

The two solar projects, which are a 75 MWac (100 MWp) plant called "M-KAT" in the Zhambyl area and also a 20 MWac (28 MWp) plant called "Nomad" in the Kyzylorda area specifically, are both possessed by Total Eren, a leading French-based Independent Power Producer (IPP) from renewable energy resources (mainly solar and also wind). Construction jobs were handled by the Greek firm METKA EGN. M-KAT and also Nomad participated in COD in December 2019.

Kazakhstan is a nation in Central Asia with a large geographical location and also has a markedly continental climate, experiencing hot summers with temperatures approximately 45 degrees Celsius as well as cold wintertimes with temperature levels as reduced as minus 50 degree Celsius. As a result of the huge range from seas, both the highest and the most affordable records are visible.

Sungrow's 1500V complete remedies utilized here preferably deal with the difficulties. Integrated with the 1500V main inverter, the medium-voltage transformer, RMU (Ring Main Unit) as well as supporting gadgets in a 20-ft container, the solutions allow very easy transportation, installation as well as O&M, decreasing the system cost. Functioning without derating under severe temperature levels because of wise forced air-cooling technology as well as affordable containerized style warranties superior returns for the solar parks. The solutions make it possible for a high DC/AC proportion which can decrease the LCOE. Notably, as one of the principals of 1500V modern technology, Sungrow has more than 18 GW of 1500V inverter services set up around the world.

Leader in Central Asia with Future-Proof Offerings

" Total Eren is dedicated to provide affordable renewable energy for the benefit of the Kazakh individuals and to contribute to the diversification of the Kazakh power market. We were pleased to collaborate with Sungrow during the building and construction of our 2 very first PV power plants in Kazakhstan, and also we are currently expecting our next success in the country," commented Fabienne Demol, Executive VP and also Global Head of Business Development of Total Eren.

" We were recognized to be chosen by such an impressive eco-friendly IPP as Total Eren to offer our inverter services to their 2 solar ranches in Kazakhstan. I wish to personally thank them for their trust fund and also assistance. Sungrow presents customers with optimum solutions that reduce LCOE and also is positioned to power extra installments in this Central Asian nation to lower dependence of the fossil energy," claimed James Wu, Vice President of Sungrow. The Company made significant ground in the country, having numerous solar inverter remedies set up and taking the top place in market share yet.

Kazakhstan Sees Huge Potentials in Solar Market

Kazakhstan's Ministry of Energy launched lately that the country's renewable resource generation doubled in the past 3 years, as well as the quantity in 2020 is expected to exceed 3,000 GWh. It's reported that the Clean Technology Fund (CTF) financial investments considerably aided jump-start the local renewable resource market. Including in this chance is the International Energy Agency's forecast that Kazakh energy demand will double by 2035.
