Ingeteam Exceeds 2 GW Of Solar Power Supplied To Australia And Achieves Its First O&M Contract In The Country


Ingeteam has passed the 2 GW (2,000 MW) mark for solar power supplied as PV
inverters for the Australian market. This figure was achieved thanks to the 753 MW
awarded to the company in 2020 in eight photovoltaic projects in which its Inverter
Stations have been or are being installed, as well as other Ingeteam products and
services. Specifically, the total solar power awarded to Ingeteam in Australia already
amounts to 2,096 MW.


An important milestone for the company that is strengthened with the arrival to the
Australian market of Ingeteam Service, the company’s operation and maintenance
division. As a market leader in the supply of O&M services for energy generation
plants, Ingeteam Service has landed in Australia with a first contract to provide O&M
services to two solar PV power plants with power ratings of 85 MW and 75 MW, that
were commissioned in December 2017.


Juan Miguel Gutiérrez, the director of Ingeteam Australia Pty Ltd., stated that the 2 GW
of power “is a nice, round number, but the important thing is that it reaffirms the
confidence that our customers are placing in our solutions, in a market in which the
technical requirements demanded by the power companies and grid operator are
probably the toughest in the world”.

The figure achieved by Ingeteam in Australia has secured the company’s position in
the country, where it has been present since 2013 and currently boasts the second
largest market share in the PV inverter manufacturer ranking.
Juan Miguel Gutiérrez also added that “our customers highly value the fact that
Ingeteam is able to offer a complete package of products and services, which not only
includes the PV inverters and transformer substations with all the low and medium
voltage equipment, but also the power plant controller (PPC) system, the SCADA, the
equipment commissioning work and the operation and maintenance service”.
