Ingeteam receives 170 MW inverter station order from Morocco
Ingeteam has commenced the supply of its equipment to three solar photovoltaic power plants in Morocco, totaling 170 MW of output power.
The solution supplied, namely Inverter Station, features new dual photovoltaic inverters and a medium voltage skid that integrates all the necessary components in order to inject to the grid the solar output power after transforming it from low to medium voltage. Thus, the power transformer, the oil deposit, the medium voltage switchgear, the ancillary services transformer and the low voltage switchgear are supplied integrated into a single metal platform or skid.
The power produced is to be supplied to the Moroccan power distribution grid, serving to cover the energy demand of thousands of homes in Morocco. This will make it possible to slightly reduce the country’s heavy reliance on foreign energy sources, given the fact that this North African country imports 90% of all the energy it consumes. The execution of this project comes within the framework of the target set by Morocco, to produce 52% of all its energy from renewable energy sources by 2030.
