Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (TMEIC) announced that its first order of its new Solar Ware Samurai Series inverters will be utilised for juwi’s Bison Solar 30MW project in Wellington, Colorado.
The PV installation will include 12 units of the Samurai Series 1500Vdc, 2700kW inverters. The 91-hectare site will provide energy equivalent to the average annual use of around 7,800 homes. Commissioning is planned for the third quarter of 2016.
Donn Samsa, TMEIC general manager, renewable energy, said: “We are excited about the opportunity to supply our newest Samurai Series PV inverters for juwi's Bison Solar project in Colorado.”
juwi selected TMEIC inverters in its design for several PV projects in 2015. The Bison Solar installation will be their first order for TMEIC’s 1500V inverter.
The new Solar Ware Samurai 1500V inverter offers a maximum efficiency of 98.8% and reduced cable mass in order to cut costs and boost flexible plant design.
