Sungrow has a contract with Bouygues Energies & Services to supply inverter solutions for two of the largest subsidy-free solar farms in the UK.
Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, announced its contract with Bouygues Energies & Services to supply inverter solutions for two of the largest subsidy-free solar farms in the UK.
The solar farms “Strensham” and “Llanwern” being constructed by Bouygues Energies & Services for Next Energy Capital, are in Gloucestershire and South Wales respectively. Once in operation, the parks, totaling 115MWp, will provide energy for 22,000 homes.
Keith Pedder, Energy & Engineering Director for Bouygues Energies & Services said “Sungrow has demonstrated its focus on providing high-quality products and exemplary customer service in the UK market.”
Sungrow will provide 23 units of SG3125HV-MV turnkey central inverters for the solar parks. The 1500V turnkey central inverter solution features easy installation and O&M, enabling cost savings at large. Equipped with robust C5 anti-corrosion capability, the solution is resilient in coastal areas, especially for the Llanwern project, which is located just 1 km away from the ocean.
Jeremy Powell, Key Account Manager of Sungrow UK, said “we are very pleased to be working on these sizeable projects with Bouygues Energies & Services and Next Energy Capital. Our aim has always been to give the most sophisticated and simple solution to our customers. This shows the trust the UK market has in Sungrow and its products.”
The inverter deliveries have been started in October 2020. Both farms will be connected to the grid in Q1 2021.
Recently, we reported that Sungrow has hit the 1 GW PV inverter cumulative shipments to Chile and took first place in the shipment ranking in Chile this year, contributing to Chilean renewable energy deployment and coal power phase-out national targets.
“Our actions are firmly grounded in advanced technologies, supplying world-class products and services to thrive in a low-carbon world. The 1 GW milestone marks a new start of our contribution in Chile,” commented Gonzalo Feito, Country Manager of Sungrow Chile.
