Solar inverter and energy storage solutions provider, Sungrow, unveiled that its 1500V string inverter solution has been adopted in Myanmar's recently launched 20-MW Taungdaw Gwin solar project. The Taungdaw Gwin project is run on an independent power producer (IPP) and build–operate-own (BOO) basis, and it is expected to generate 45 GWh of electricity annually.
Though located on a site with abundant solar radiation, the project is subjected to high temperatures and humidity all over the year, posing strict requirements for the performance of solar equipment.
Having reached IP66 protection and C5 anti-corrosion, Sungrow's 1500V string inverter solution is tailor-made for projects in harsh climate conditions. According to the company, the 1500V string inverter solution always bears efficiency and adaptability in mind in its R&D. The inverter features an advanced intelligent MPPT module and can reportedly achieve a maximum yield of 99% efficiency. It equips the anti-PID and PID recovery functionality, which can recover power degradation in the PV modules. It is also compatible with bifacial solar modules and solar tracking systems like the application of the Taungdaw Gwin solar project.
"Sungrow's extensive and proven experience as a solar inverter leader contributed greatly to the completion of the Taung Daw Gwin project," said U Thaung Kyaing, Chairman of Green Power Energy Company Limited (developer of the Taungdaw Gwin project).
"Our actions are firmly grounded in customer demands, to offer best-in-class products and services needed to thrive in a low-carbon world. The 20MW PV project can not only offer our customers with maximum return on investment but also provide grounding benefits for local communities, such as offering more households and creating more jobs," said Luis Xu, Director of Sungrow APAC Region.
