SMA Delivers Inverters and Takes Over Operation & Maintenance Services of 100 megawatt PV Power Plant in Canada(PresseBox) (Niestetal/Toronto, )
"The North American market is one of the most important PV markets worldwide. The Grand Renewable Solar LP contract to deliver 130 central inverters and take over the operational management of the 100 megawatt plant in Ontario proves again that SMA has an excellent international position as a major project development partner in the industrial plant segment," explains SMA Chief Executive Officer Pierre-Pascal Urbon.
The delivery of the 130 Sunny Central 800CP-US central inverters will begin early in 2014. With an efficiency of 98.7%, the inverters ensure the plant's maximum efficiency and profitability - even under adverse weather conditions.
Additionally, they assume important grid management functions.
In addition to the delivery of the inverters, Grand Renewable Solar LP has selected SMA to take over operational management of the whole plant for 10 years. SMA's comprehensive O&M service not only includes the inverters, but also the medium-voltage components, modules, frames, all the cabling as well as the vegetation and fencing around the plant. Repairs, device replacements, maintenance and visual inspections are also part of the package. This means that SMA guarantees the plant operator seamless operation at all times as well as outstanding performance and planning certainty.
