Ingeteam Continues Its International Expansion With Subsidiaries In Morocco And Peru

The inverter supplier and operations and maintenance company is expanding its global presence with new subsidiaries in North Africa and Latin America.

Ingeteam is expanding internationally by opening new subsidiaries in Morocco and Peru. With the expansion, the company has secured its position as a global leader in the provision of operation and maintenance services to energy generation plants with a presence in 22 countries. Both subsidiaries are focused on the renewable energies sector and have been awarded PV contracts. There are also plans to increase their presence in both countries in the wind power sector.

In Morocco, Ingeteam employs 15 people to perform operation and maintenance tasks at three PV plants with installed capacities of 71.5 MWp, 84.5 MWp and 19.5 MWp. Last year, Ingeteam also supplied PV inverters to the plants, which are among the largest in North Africa. The power produced is delivered to the Moroccan grid, meeting the energy demand of thousands of homes. This makes it possible to slightly reduce the country’s heavy reliance on foreign energy sources, given Morocco imports 90% of its energy. Implementation of the projects comes within the framework of the target set by Morocco to produce 52% of its energy from renewables by 2030.

Ingeteam has already supplied more than 700 MW worth of PV inverters and is responsible for the operation and maintenance services for 230 MW in five South African PV plants. Ingeteam was also recently awarded a contract for the supply and commissioning of the protection, control and measurement systems for three substations in Malawi.

In Peru, the Ingeteam’s Lima subsidiary is providing operation and maintenance services in the PV sector at two solar plants in the southern Arequipa region. The solar parks were constructed in 2012 and each have an installed capacity of 22 MW, to generate sufficient electricity to supply a community of up to 80,000 people.

One plant is the Repartición solar park, the first PV plant in South America to generate electricity from solar energy. The second plant is in the district of Majes, with more than 56,000 solar panels covering 100 hectares.

In 2014, Ingeteam supplied power stations to a 20 MW PV plant near the municipality of Moquegua in the province of Mariscal Nieto.

With the opening of its Peru subsidiary, Ingeteam expects to strengthen its prominent position in the Latin American market as a supplier of power converters and provider of operation and maintenance services for renewable energy generation plants.
