Major China-based PV inverter manufacturer Sungrow Power Supply Co has confirmed that it was selected by GRIDSERVE to provide specially adapted central inverters and ESS (energy storage systems) to a subsidy-free 34.7 MW PV park being built in Hull, UK for Warrington Borough Council.
Sungrow said that it would be supplying its 1500 Volt turnkey central inverter stations, SG3125HV-MV to the project, specifically modified for the energy storage systems, which include a 27MW/30MWh of storage via its standard 2.5 MW-1 Hour ESS system to the project.
The flexibility of the storage system is designed to provide a range of grid services such as frequency response, grid balancing and reserve capacity which enhances the overall solar-plus-storage project benefits.
Lewis Li, General Manager of Sungrow UK said, “We are very proud to partner up with GRIDSERVE on these two milestone projects supplying our world-class solar PV and energy storage solutions. We will keep pursuing technical innovations to provide higher yields and offer state-of-the-art product portfolios together with establishing ourselves as the best service platform in the sector.”
Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE added, “We value Sungrow's proven 22-year track record in the PV industry. The company has already demonstrated its commitment to the UK market by continuing to grow its presence here. Furthermore, the flexibility and professionalism Sungrow have shown is paramount to support our business in this venture. We look forward to collaborating on more projects in the future”, said Mr. Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE.
GRIDSERVE has also selected Suntech to provide mono-PERC (Passivated Emitter Rear Cell) bifacial modules for the project.
