The Satcon PowerGate Plus 500kW inverter has been selected by Enfinity to supply two power stations at one of France’s largest photovoltaic solar farms in Les Mees, Alpes-Haute-Provence.
“Les Mees will be one of the largest solar energy projects of its kind in France, and as a result, we needed to partner with a market leader that could deliver superior results,” said Patrick Decuyper, CEO Europe and co-founder at Enfinity.
“Satcon’s innovative technology and expertise with utility-scale solar power production will help us achieve the highest level of performance and reliability required for these installations. We are pleased about our partnership with Satcon, and look forward to working together on this and future projects,” continued Decuyper.
“The Les Mees project marks an important step for Satcon as we continue to expand on our international growth and officially enter the French utility-scale solar market,” said Steve Rhoades, Satcon’s president and CEO.
“Satcon has been part of most of the world’s largest scale solar power plants and we see tremendous momentum in France. We are excited to team up with one of the world leaders in large scale solar projects for this installation and look forward to a close partnership with Enfinity in the future,” concluded Rhoades.
Upon completion, the two sites will produce approximately 23,400,000kWh of renewable power; the plants are scheduled for completion in October 2010.
