GCL System Integration Technology (GCL-SI) has launched its first modular PV power plant system. The ‘Super 2.5 MW Solar Block’ system utilizes GCL-SI’s 96-cell modules with a specially developed horizontal single axis tracker to accommodate the large-area modules as well as an all-in-one Inverter Power Container for 1500V DC system voltage. 

Problem

The use of standardized and modular components developed together provide the opportunity to reduce Balance of System (BOS) costs further, shorter installation times and increased reliability, compared to bespoke designs.

Solution

The Super 2.5 MW Solar Block is a power generation unit built to supply energy to solar power plants was developed from some of the most advanced components on the market, according to the company. The Super 2.5 MW Solar Block is claimed to be cost-effective and maximizes space efficiency. The strategic design of the Solar Block ensures long-term reliable operation, even in extreme environmental conditions. The block design utilizes GCL-SI’s in-house developed 96-cell modules with a specially developed horizontal single axis tracker to accommodate the large-area modules but with a reduction in panel fixture and electrical connections to support faster construction times. All components apply with 1500 V DC standards, which ensures lower costs in cabling and power conversion, leading to high system efficiency. The all-in-one PV inverter power container was specially developed with two 1000 kW inverters with 1500 V DC System voltage, and one MV transformer, which further reduces on-site electrical and grid connection work. GCL-SI uses a built in monitoring system for the inverter.

Applications

Utility-scale PV power plants.

Platform

GCL-SI is offering a global service network as well as remote monitoring, regular inspections as well as a full O&M service. 

Availability

October 2017, onwards.
