Italy-based manufacturer Elettronica Santerno has supplied 20 of its Sunway inverters to China Guodian for a 200MW PV plant in Qinghai province, China.
The system, which already has an installed capacity of 20MW, is situated 2,850m above sea level. Consequently, it is essential the inverters, as well as the modules and other equipment, are able to withstand adverse weather conditions and led China Guodian to select Elettronica Santerno’s durable N.18 Sunway TG 730 and N.2 Sunway TG 750 inverters.
The next phase of development is due to start shortly and will see 30MW added to capacity. A further 50MW will come online in 2012, with the final 100MW phase scheduled for completion by 2015.
