AETI's (American Electric Technologies) ISIS 1MW solar inverter has been witness-tested to UL1741 by TÜV of North America. The integration of 1MW of liquid cooled power inverters with a 1MVA transformer and medium voltage switchgear, is aimed at reducing field installation costs. SEMV (Socios Energeticos de Mexico Verde) has selected AETI to a solar project in Mexico. Contract terms were not disclosed.
The companies claim the 1.0 MW ISIS will enable SEMV to realize increased farm productivity used alongside its 1000 Volt PV panels through its 1200 Volt UL1741 and IEEE 1547 witness-tested architecture. AETI's ISIS features include liquid cooling and operation without derating for up to 50°C.
“We selected the ISIS solar inverter for our project requirements based on its high-performance capabilities and AETI's proven history of deploying reliable, megawatt-class power systems in harsh desert climates,” said George Gonzalez, executive director, SEMV. “We look forward to working with AETI on our other future utility-scale solar projects as well.”
“We are pleased to have been selected by SEMV for their important solar project,” said Charles Dauber, president and CEO, AETI. “By working with international solar project developers like SEMV, we can enable the industry to reach its Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) objectives and help solar power reach grid parity cost levels.”
AETI expects to ship the system in the third quarter for installation in autumn 2012.
