Commissioning of Mata de Palma PV Plant

The commissioning and performance test of Mata de Palma PV Plant, has been completed successfully. Located in San Antonio de Guerra, province of Santo Domingo (Dominican Republic) this project has a total capacity of 50 MW and will generate 110 GWh per year

Mata de Palma solar park is one of the most important renewable energy projects initiated within the framework of the Support Plan for Renewable Energy Projects headed by CDEEE (Dominican Corporation of State Electric Companies) and our biggest project to date in this country.

For this project, we supplied a total of ten of our 5.1 MVA Gamesa Electric PV Stations, each of which includes two high efficiency Gamesa Electric PV 2500 solar inverters at 1500Vdc, which scores one of the highest efficiencies in the PV market (99.0% maximum efficiency; 98.8% European efficiency) and one 2.5 MVA station which just includes one of our inverters.

All of these include the step-up transformer and a medium voltage protection switchgear all integrated within fully wired interconnected and factory tested ISO maritime containers, for ease of both field assembly and installation.

In addition, to coordinate the response of all the solar inverters in order to comply with the power plant grid code interconnection requirements, a central Power Plant Controller will be supplied.
