German manufacturer SMA is to supply 114 of its Sunny Central 900CP XT inverters to what is said to be Europe’s largest thin-film PV power plant in Templin in Brandenburg, Germany.
The project has a nominal capacity of 128MWp and will provide renewable energy to the greater Berlin area.
SMA said its inverters offered the right level of stability for such a large project.
Jürgen Reinert, SMA’s executive vice president technology said: “The main challenge with large-scale PV power plants such as Europe’s biggest thin-film PV power plant is not only to ensure grid stability but also stable system operation.”
“SMA not only provides robust, high-performance Sunny Central inverters and system technology components for these PV power plants, but also offers system solutions ranging from DC to medium voltage specifically designed for maximum availability in photovoltaic projects. These solutions ensure maximum yield and availability. As technology and global market leader, we strive to promote technological development with a focus on critical issues such as additional yield maximisation, cost reduction and grid integration.”
