Sungrow, a PV inverter manufacturer, announced the installation of world’s largest PV and energy storage microgrid power plant in Shuanghu, China.
Sungrow has supplied 13 MW of PV inverters and 7 MW of energy storage inverters for the project, located in the highest region in the world located in China’s Tibet province.
The 20 MW microgrid power plant aims to provide electricity to over 14,000 people living in the vicinity, with average elevations reaching heights of over 5000 meters.
With temperatures often dipping below -5℃ and the lowest temperatures recorded at -40℃, Shuanghu County’s extreme climate has frequently posed challenges to inverters and other solar components, operating in the region’s frigid conditions.
Sungrow’s solar and energy storage inverters, together with the company‘s batteries systems, are employed in this project. Sungrow’s inverters are designed with standardized container specifications, drastically shortening the time required for installation and commissioning which in turn reduces overall installed costs.
In difficult geographic locations where labor and other installation-related costs are proportionately higher, these types of cost reductions are even more accentuated. Backed by class-leading solar inverter hardware, Sungrow’s massive microgrid power plant is also intelligently designed for remote monitoring and makes unattended operation a reality.
“We are always dedicated to bringing green and effective energy to markets in need all around the world, especially for those who reside in areas with limited access to electricity,” said Professor Renxian Cao, president of Sungrow.
