GE Power today announced its deal with EPC Construtora Quebec, an engineering company in Brazil, to provide its 4.4 MW and 2.2 MW LV5 1,500-volt inverters and skids for the 14-MW Verde Vale III project in Guanambi, Brazil.

GE Power said the LV5 1,500-volt inverter technology has a higher voltage, enabling a simpler and more efficient farm infrastructure layout. This technology can also deliver reduced system cost as well as operating expenses.

GE will provide the full service to EPC Construtora Quebec, managing the assembling, the commissioning and the maintenance to guarantee the optimal performance and durability of the full electrical balance of plant, including inverters’ stations, transformers and substations and connection bay.

“In the Vale Verde III project, GE’s solar solution ensures us a solar project that will have reduced Capex and Opex, allowing us to create value for the plant’s long-term performance,” said Scott Wells, CEO, Construtora Quebec.

Brazil hit 1 GW of solar installed capacity at the beginning of the year, demonstrating strong interest and ambition in developing PV technology to diversify the future power mix.

“We are committed to continuing our quest to shaping a more sustainable and clean energy landscape in the region,” said Azeez Mohammed, president & CEO, GE’s Power Conversion.
