SMA Solar Technology is to deliver equipment including inverters to a 50MW solar project in Minbu, Myanmar.
The German firm will supply its Power Station 2000SC, a turnkey system solution equipped with two Sunny Central 1000SC-XT inverters and a medium voltage solution for the grid connection.
The plant, 500km northwest from Yangon, will go into operation in spring of 2019, supplying power for the equivalent of 20,000 Myanmar households.
“In the northern region of Myanmar where the PV project is located, the performance of the inverter capacity under extremely high temperatures is of fundamental importance. Our Sunny Central inverters can address the demand with full nominal power in continuous operation at ambient temperature up to 40 °C”, said John Susa, EVP of SMA Sales North America and APAC.
“Minbu Solar Park is the first large scale solar project in Myanmar, we need to work with reliable partners to ensure its success in performance,” said Ray Liu, Director of New Energy Department at EPC provider CTIEC (China Triumph International Engineering Group Co., Ltd.). “We know that SMA has the global experience and reliability which is necessary to minimize the risks, we chose SMA’s system technology because we were impressed by its product testing procedure and high degree of design flexibility. SMA also made a vital contribution to deliver the products within a tight construction schedule.”
