Gamesa Electric Has Been Awarded The Supply Of Its Biggest Solar PV project/53,31MWp
Gamesa Electric has been awarded with its biggest Solar Photovoltaic project to date, involving the supply of Solar Power Stations and Control for a 53,31MWp project in Honduras
This project is signed two and a half months after our former 50MWdc plant in Philippines and adds to the 32MWp in Panama, 23,5MWp in UK and 10MWp in India recently announced by the company, which joins to a total accumulated order backlog of more than 275MWp in the last one and a half year.
Gamesa Electric’s scope of supply for this project will be :
9 Solar Power Stations 2,8MVA (each of them formed mainly by 2 PV Inverters 1,4MVA, step transformer and MV protection switchgear in a 40ft ISO container)
7 Solar Power Stations 2,2MVA (each of them formed mainly by 2 PV Inverters 1,1MVA, step transformer and MV protection switchgear in a 40ft ISO container)
3 Solar Power Stations 1,4MVA (each of them formed mainly by 1 PV Inverter 1,4MVA, step transformer and MV protection switchgear in a 20ft ISO container)
1 Power Plant Controller (PPC)
Gamesa Electric will be the supplier of the Power Plant Controller to ensure the fulfillment of the Honduras Grid Code requirements of the complete PV plant. The main requirements are:
Voltage and power factor regulation
LVRT (Low Voltage Ride Through)
The PPC will receive commands from the Honduras National Grid Operator, and through a real-time controller, will send communication signals to the Gamesa PV inverters to fulfill the received command in the Point of Common Coupling (PCC).
With this operation, Gamesa Electric reinforces its presence in LATAM, with a new supply contract in a country in its first development stages for PV renewable energy, and with a new customer with an interesting future portfolio of projects.
Gamesa Electric’s will deliver the Solar Power Stations to Honduras in Q1-2016 and the project will be commissioned in early Q2-2016
