Chinese language PV inverter producer Sungrow has equipped 580MW of built-in inverters to the Serra do Mel photo voltaic complicated in Brazil.
Operated by international renewable power firm Voltalia, the Serra do Mel 1&2 tasks will kind a part of the Serra Blanco hybrid cluster, which presently sits at 800MW capability of predominantly wind property. Voltalia mentioned that the cluster is anticipated to whole nearly 2.5GW.
Sungrow equipped 70 SG3125HV central inverters, which have a C5 corrosion stage and an influence of 3437kW. The inverters will also be operated remotely as a part of a totally automated system.
Voltalia mentioned that it has already begun building on the Serra do Mel 3&4 tasks, which is able to make use of 608 SG350HX inverters from Sungrow. These third and fourth levels of the challenge will add as much as 260MW.
In September, Voltalia introduced that it anticipated to achieve its goal of two.6GW put in renewables capability a yr sooner than deliberate, and in June it started improvement of one other 1.5GW renewables cluster in Minas Gerais, Brazil, just like the Serra Blanco cluster.
