The supply is split between five PV plants located in Spain and Chile.
29thof July, 2019. Ingeteam has signed a framework agreement with the Spanish company Solarpack, by means of which both companies have agreed to supply 200 megawatts of the Ingeteam Inverter Station solution to solar plants in Spain and Chile.
The signing of this agreement is the fruit of the good relationship between both companies, which commenced more than ten years ago. As well as the supply of equipment, the contract also includes its commissioning at the destination plants.
Ingeteam’s Inverter Stations, in both the Skid and Skidless versions, include not only the photovoltaic inverters with 1500V technology, but also all the other components required to convert the DC electricity produced by the solar panels to AC, and from low voltage to medium voltage (transformer, switchgear, etc.). This solution is capable of supplying up to 7.2 MW in medium voltage.
Moreover, Ingeteam will also supply its PPC (Power Plant Controller) system for each of the five solar plants coming within the framework agreement.
This supply of equipment is split between the three solar plants in Chile and two plants in Spain, which are currently being built.
