Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, has supplied solar inverters for the High Technological Hub created by Acciona at El Romero Solar Plant in the Atacama Desert (Chile), demonstrating that products from Sungrow are highly recognized by industry experts.
The hub will focus on the mechanics and energy capacity of PV equipment consisting of inverters, double-sided crystalline, split-cell and thin-film cadmium telluride (CdTe) technologies with the intention of shaping PV energy’s evolution.
Located in the Atacama desert in Chile, an area with some of the highest levels of solar radiation in the world, the research hub poses severe challenges to the solar equipment. Designed with optimal protection level and smart forced air-cooling technology, Sungrow inverters are resilient to scorching heat while at the same time enabling optimal LCOE.
Electricity generated by Sungrow inverters will be constantly measured, in order to control and register the quality and characteristics of the produced electricity.
Other equipment will also be installed in the tracker zones to monitor parameters such as incident and reflected solar radiation, ambient temperature or the production temperature of each kind of module.
“We are proud to be part of this research program and delighted to devote products to a wider range of applications,” said James Wu, Vice President of Sungrow.
“Early this year, we secured a landmark agreement for a 400 MW solar project in the Atacama desert. Backed by our 87 GW global installations and the robust R&D background, Sungrow is poised to deliver more clean energy technology around the globe,” he added.
