Ingeteam supplied 1,500 VDC technology for the this Clare Solar Farm project, involving the supply of the company's 'INGECON' SUN PowerMax central inverters, capable of producing a power output of up to 1,800kW with a single 1,500 VDC inverter.

Actually capable of 1,600kW, the system is supplied as a turnkey solution, comprising of three inverters housed in a 40 foot container, in addition to a power transformer, low voltage switchgear, medium voltage switchgear and auxiliary services panel.
