Raycap revealed at Intersolar Europe this week that construction on the 1,411kWpk power plant in Drama, Greece has been finalized using the company’s SPD solutions. The new facility neighbors Raycap’s factory and will be used as the company’s research and development test facility for its PV power protection products.
“Aside from the obvious benefits of the solar generated power, access to this facility for testing our Strikesorb line of SPDs supports the initiative to continue engineering them for use in more extreme conditions, enabling best-in-class solutions for markets that value reliable electrical protection,” said Dr. Zafiris Politis, R&D director for Raycap's electrical protection business unit. “The new solar power plant next to our factory at Drama extends Raycap's ability to test its integrated AC, DC and signal protection solutions to deliver the highest reliability with virtually no maintenance.”
Raycap noted that the new plant is considered one of the largest in northern Greece and utilizes 18,200 thin-film solar panels and two 800kW central inverters. On a yearly basis, the facility is anticipated to produce 2 million kilowatt hours of electricity.
