Satcon Technology has delivered 23MW of its PowerGate Plus 500kW solar PV inverters to GCL Solar for its 20MW Jiming Hill Xunzhou solar plant and its 3MW Yancheng Guoneng rooftop installation.

The Xunzhou solar plant, located on 400,000m2 of hillside in the Xuzhou City Jiangsu province, is expected to have a power generation of approximately 26,000,000kWh per year and operate for approximately 1300 hours annually, making it reportedly the largest installed solar power plant in China, the companies said.

The 3MW Yancheng Guoneng rooftop installation is expected to produce 3,370,000Kwh of grid-connected solar power per year. The installation will cover a 46 million square-meter factory rooftop surface and will be the largest rooftop project in China.

“Both the Xunzhou photovoltaic power station and the Yangcheng City rooftop installation are technological breakthroughs in project construction and technology innovation,” said Dr. Gu Huamin, general manager of GCL Solar. “The two installations clearly demonstrate China’s increasing demand for utility scale renewable power production and its commitment to large-scale solar innovation.”

“China is quickly becoming the world’s leading adopter of utility scale solar power production,” said Steve Rhoades, Satcon’s president and chief executive officer. “Satcon has developed and deployed the world’s most widely utilized large scale solar PV inverter solutions. Our technical innovation and expertise provide our customers with the industry’s most advanced and proven utility scale solutions, optimized in design and performance to deliver the energy safety, security, reliability, sustainability and efficiency required to power the world’s renewable energy needs.”

“Satcon is a trusted name in China, having their first PowerGate solutions installed at Beijing’s National City Museum in 2003,” continued Dr. Gu. “The combination of their deep experience in delivering advanced, utility scale solar power plant systems and the proven efficiency and reliability of their solutions gives us the confidence to partner with them as we capture the huge opportunities arising from global photovoltaic power generation and become a leading photovoltaic power generation operator in the world in the next few years.”

“We are both honored and excited to partner with an industry leader like GCL to develop a total system solution that delivers the highest levels of performance and reliability designed specifically for the Chinese utility-scale solar market,” continued Rhoades. “The Xunzhou and Yangcheng City installations are the first of what we expect to be many projects together.”
