Ingeteam is to supply its PV inverters to a 96 MW plant in South Africa

Pamplona - Ingeteam is to supply its 1 MW central inverters to one of the largest PV plants in the African continent. The project, named Jasper PV, is to be executed and constructed by a consortium formed by Iberdrola Engineering and Construction South Africa (the subsidiary of Iberdrola Ingenieria y Construcción) and Group Five, a South African construction company.

This plant is to have an installed power output of 96 MW DC , to be delivered to the country's electricity grid thanks to the 78 INGECON® SUN PowerMax central inverters which Ingeteam is to supply inside its 40 foot 2 MW Power Station shelters. Furthermore, Ingeteam is also to provide the Jasper PV plant with its plant control system, namely the INGECON® EMS Plant Manager, responsible for ensuring compliance with all the requirements of the grid operator and with South African regulations. It is estimated that this PV plant could generate sufficient electricity to supply 30,000 homes.

The Jasper PV project, which is to be equipped with 325,000 polycrystalline modules, covering 180 hectares in the province of Northern Cape, reflects the consolidation of Ingeteam in South Africa. This is the third plant in which this PV inverter manufacturer has been involved in less than one year since its subsidiary started to operate in the vicinity of Johannesburg.

PV Inverters

With a maximum efficiency of 98.8%, the INGECON® SUN 1000TL M400 DCAC Indoor PV inverters are at the forefront of the market for central inverters. These transformerless inverters are designed to obtain the maximum performance at large-scale PV plants, being able to deliver a maximum power output up to an ambient temperature of 45 ºC whilst contributing to the quality and stability of the electricity system with a low voltage ride through capability and the possibility of delivering reactive power even at night.

These inverters are to be delivered inside thirty-nine 2 MW INGECON® SUN Power Stations equipped with everything necessary for optimum operation: transformer, auxiliary services switchgear, etc.

To date, Ingeteam has supplied more than 3 GWp to its customers, confirming its position as one of the world's leading inverter manufacturers.
