POWER ELECTRONICS PROVIDES 23MW SOLAR INVERTERS TO PHOTOVOLTAIC PLANT IN CHILE AT 2800m ALTITUDE
The plant will be located to the north of the country, in Antofagasta 2,800m above sea level and will inject energy into the SING during the third quarter of 2015. This is the second project after commissioned PV Park Puquios 3MW last January.
Chile is a country that gradually consolidated like solar market leader with 456 MW under construction, more than 5 gigawatts (GW) system approved by the Environmental Impact Assessment (SEIA) and another 4.7 GW in rating process. Climatologically and demographic diversity of the country is not a handicap for Power Electronics which has long been operating throughout the country demanding sectors such as mining. “In Chile we have delegation since 2007, we have strategic locations for the supply of spare parts allows us to provide technical support 24 hours in minimum time” said Miguel Angel Escribano, Director of Solar Power Electronics Division.
The outdoor inverters Freesun GenII Series HEC will be responsible for supplying power to the electrical system of the country. The benefits of this unique modular inverter, redundant elements, stainless steel construction with mineral insulation and also offer the best rates of availability and durability of the market for large scale PV plants.
