ABB has signed a contract to provide ABB string inverters for two new photovoltaic power plants delivered by the Solek Group in Chile, with a total output of 6MW.
The projects, which are approximately 2x3.5MWp each, will be equipped with TRIO-50.0-TL-OUTD three-phase string inverters. The delivery of the technology should be complete by October 2017.
"We firmly believe that solar technology should be a leading sustainable energy source for distributed power generation and building applications, driving growth in mature and developing economies,” commented Tanja Vainio, Country Manager, ABB Czech Republic. “We are therefore committed to continual investment in this sector, leveraging the strong digital capabilities from across our business, as part of ABB Ability, to develop market leading PV solutions and product platforms."
"The current investment into photovoltaic plants in Chile brings new opportunities to the Czech Republic and we are proud to announce that the Solek Group, the supplier of both projects, will begin using ABB string inverter technology to power PV progress in Chile."
"We constantly look at new technologies in our field and always seek to get the best for our projects. ABB string inverters have proved ideal for our current projects in Chile. Moreover, ABB is a solid partner for us and that is why our two new projects, Amaparo del Sol and Santa Laura (formerly referred to as La Frotuna), will use these products," said Zdeněk Sobotka, CEO, Solek Group.
