Ingeteam grows in South America with the supply of its inverters to two new photovoltaic plants in Ecuador
settembre 10, 2013
They are in the province of Pichincha in Ecuador, 100 km from the capital Quito: two new identical photovoltaic plants that are powered by Ingeteam inverters, which reach 1MW of power each.
Installed by SUNCO Sistemi Fotovoltaici on the Ecuadorian mountain range of the Andes, the solar fields are at 3,000 m above sea level: a new source of energy for the entire country, they are already active and have been connected to the national electricity network since August.
In order to create the plants, Ingeteam supplied 2 INGECON SUN Power Station CON 20, containing 1 INGECON SUN 460TL M360 inverter and 1 INGECON SUN 690TL M360 inverter each, both part of the INGECON SUN PowerMax range of centralised inverters.
This project confirms Ingeteam's international growth strategy for clean energy expansion at a global level, with a particular focus on countries characterised by a lower level of industrialisation but ready for a new economical development.
Since April 14th 2011, the national authority for electric energy in Ecuador has adopted a Feed-In-Tariff (FIT) programme that also involves the Galápagos Islands. This programme aims to establish agreed tariffs for buying energy that is produced by renewable sources such as photovoltaic, wind, water and biomass systems. This action confirms the Government engagement in promoting the development of the new energy resources and the country's growth, while respecting the environmental ecosystem that characterises it.
