Order Focus: Satcon wins further Chinese utility-scale projects


Satcon Technology has won a new order to supplier GCL Solar with 500kW ‘PowerGate’ Plus inverters for three separate solar power plants with a combined power of 38MW. The company had previously won inverter sales for projects reaching a combined 23MW for ground-mounted and largest rooftop projects in China in 2009.

“These new projects demonstrate the increased momentum of the utility scale solar marketplace in China,” said Dr. Gu Huamin, General Manager of GCL Solar Limited.

“GCL continues be a key driver in the rapid growth of China’s utility scale solar market,” noted Steve Rhoades, Satcon’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The increased scope and volume of these installations highlight the importance of engineering and construction innovation supported by the worlds most advanced and reliable technology solutions. With these new power plants, GCL expands its leadership position in both the China and the global utility scale solar market.”

The new projects are for a 10MW site in Youyu City , Shanxi Provence and will supply power to Shanxi International Power Solar Power Generation.  Another 10 megawatt Pingluo County Shizuishan City will be the location of another 10MW plant located in the Ningxia Hui Nationality Municipality and will supply power to Ningxia State Power CSI New Energy Developer.

The largest but unidentified project is a 20MW plant, said to be constructed in the first half of 2010 and operational this summer.
