SUNGROW will provide to the largest private PV project in Africa in the solar group the modular inverter solution 1+x
JOHANNESBURG, November 10, 2022 / Prnewswire/ – SUNGROW, the world’s main supplier of wavelers and energy storage for renewable energies, and Sola Group, one of the main independent electricity producers in South Africasigned a contract for supplying PV inverters for africa The largest private IPP photovoltaic project of 256 MWC. This project will feed 5 tronox installations, the world’s leading world manufacturer of titanium dioxide pigments, thanks to the driving agreements with ESKOM.
This is the first private IPP PV project in the Sola group, and it requires high quality products and a cooperative team to ensure its smooth delivery. SUNGROW provides modular 1+X modular inverters, an innovation combining the advantages of central and chain inverters, thus bringing a more flexible design for different block sizes and facilitating operation and maintenance on site. More importantly, the 1+X modular inverter is also equipped with an intelligent diagnosis at the level of the chains to improve energy efficiency and parallel arc detection in real time to further protect the safety of the system. Therefore, these advantages help reduce global opex. As Sola Group is a local PI in South Africa, it also emphasizes localized efforts and contributions. Sungrow has a branch in South Africa With local technical engineers and a service team, which provides a dedicated and constructive on -site cooperation for the Sola group.
When this project is fully implemented by 2023, it will generate 540 GWh of clean electricity per year and considerably reduce the carbon footprint of Tronox throughout its production chain. This large -scale public service project can provide a considerable clean energy production capacity, thus helping to fill the current electricity deficit in South Africa And accelerate its rhythm of energy transition and modernization.
“This 256 MWC solar project is the largest and the first of this scale in South Africa. Sola Group as the IPP project takes the selection of our suppliers very seriously. The solutions of modular inverter at the cutting edge of the Sungrow industry, its deep experience in solar projects and its dedicated local team distinguish it.
