Partner Thesan commissions six new PV power plants.
Terranuova Bracciolini, Italy, January 22, 2014 – Power-One, a member of the ABB Group and the world’s second largest designer and manufacturer of photovoltaic inverters, announced today that the company’s inverters were used in six Romanian solar parks with a total installed capacity of 9MWp. The acquisition and construction of the installations, each with a capacity of between 1MWp and 2.5MWp, was planned and implemented by Thesan SpA, a member of Savio Group and worldwide player in the renewable energies industry.
Built within two months, the first 2MWp installation in the Southwest of Bucharest has already been connected to the grid and has also received an accreditation of the Romanian Energy Regulatory Authority (ANRE) for issuing so-called green certificates. As of today, four Romanian installations have already been finalized using Power-One’s pre-assembled ULTRA STATION and PLUS STATION, which consist of the company’s PVI-267.0-TL and PVI-400.0-TL central inverters. For the other two projects, which are currently under construction, Thesan chose the PLUS STATION by Power-One.
These turnkey solutions are available in many options for power installations rated between 400kW and 3110kW. Power-One’s offering allowed Thesan to install a custom-fitted inverter product and to meet their targeted performance requirements on their large solar parks. Thesan chose Power-One’s products in order to verify high yields and energy harvesting thanks to multiple MPPTs as well as the modular design approach to address the demanding needs of utility-scale applications.
“This is the first time we have worked with Power-One,” explains Pierluigi Borgogna, Head of Renewable Energy Division at Thesan. “In the beginning we chose the company due to its high quality products as well as to the impressive performance of Power-One’s inverters. Now we also had the chance to experience their service. From the design to the choice of the best inverter for each installation up to the connection to the grid – Power-One supported us during all phases of the project in a reliable and professional manner.”
“We are pleased to support Thesan’s project in one of the most promising PV markets in South East Europe. Romania offers the ideal topographical and political conditions for the installation of solar parks, which makes it a perfect investment target. We are glad about the fruitful and intense cooperation with Thesan and are looking forward to the future,” said Alessandra Romoli, Area Sales Manager South EMEA at Power-One.
