Ingeteam has supplied its PV inverters to the recently-inaugurated PV solar plant in Moquegua, located in southern Peru. This plant, which was recently inaugurated by the country's President, Ollanta Humala, occupies a surface area of 134 hectares and represents an investment of more than 35 million euros.
With an estimated annual energy production of 45,000 MWh, the plant is expected to meet the annual energy demand of some 20,000 homes.
This order has enabled Ingeteam to gain a foothold in the Peruvian PV market, a market which has strong solar energy potential.
Some four hundred workers were employed in the construction of this plant, which they managed to complete in just seven months. SolarPack was responsible for the development and construction of the plant. The Ingeteam supply comprised ten 1.8 MW power stations, designed to comply with all the requirements of the country's grid code. Thus, aiming at satisfying all the requisites of the Committee for the Economic Operation of the System (COES), Ingeteam also supplied its EMS (Energy Management System) in order to implement the power plant control.
To date, Ingeteam has supplied more than 34 GW to its customers within the renewable energy sector, confirming its position as one of the world's leading power converter manufacturers.
