Sungrow to Supply Inverter Solutions to 500 MW Solar Plant in Oman
- Sungrow will provide 1500V SG250HX inverter services to the 500 MWac IBRI II project in Oman, which is the biggest utility-scale solar plant in the Sultanate to day.
Sungrow, a leading inverter remedy distributor for renewables, has actually revealed that it will provide 1500V SG250HX inverter options to the 500 MWac IBRI II project in Oman, which is the biggest utility-scale solar plant in the Sultanate to day, showing the Company's durable initiatives in sustaining Oman's passion of raising the renewable resource mix by 10 percent. The shipment of inverter services will certainly begin in Q2 this year.
The IBRI II PV project is an Independent Power Project (IPP) to be created on a BOO (develop, possess, run) basis. The USD 400 million project was moneyed on a financial debt to equity proportion of 70:30 and also a consortium including ACWA Power, Gulf Investment Corporation (GIC) as well as the Alternative Energy Projects Company (AEPC) has actually attained the economic closure of it just recently.
The project is anticipated ahead online in the summer season of 2021, preventing apart any kind of possible COVID-19 associated factors to consider. It will provide tidy power to state-owned utility Oman Power as well as Water Procurement Company (OPWP) under a 15-year agreement. The plant can create about 1,300 GWh every year, which suffices to power an approximated 33,000 houses as well as counter 340,000 tonnes of co2 exhausts each year.
The project lies in a desert around 300 kilometres west of Muscat with enough sunlight as well as bountiful level land. The system presents stringent demands on a reduced LCOE with sophisticated PV modern technologies and also the durability to extreme problems such as heat and also sand deterioration. Sungrow's SG250HX, among the globe's most effective 1500V string inverters, to be set up onsite is an excellent suit for the project. The service includes 12 MPPTs with optimal effectiveness of 99 percent as well as allows flexible block layout enabling approximately 6.75 MW blocks. Suitable with bi-facial components and also tracking systems, the option can substantially increase ROI for a PV project.
The enhanced Power Line Communication (PLC) will certainly lower setup expenses without extreme interaction circuitry. Geared Up with 24-hour Static Var Generator (SVG) feature, the option can give a efficient and also immediate feedback to power high quality issues, allowing enhanced power system security, lowered power losses, as well as adhering to a lot of requiring regional power top quality criteria as well as grid codes, conserving around USD 1,143,000. Specifically with IP66 as well as C5 security along with the clever forced air-cooling innovation, the 250 kW inverter can run without derating also the ambient temperature level depends on 50 levels Celsius, highly durable to scorching deserts of Oman.
