Hardap solar PV plant

Hardap photovoltaic solar plant in Namibia

This plant is the third solar project and the largest to date in Namibia, a country that in order to improve its efficiency, is already moving towards an expansion in renewable energies. This project will generate around 116 GWh/year.

The commissioning and Performance Ratio (PR) of this plant was completed in April 2019.
The total supply was of 9 Solar PV Stations of 4.6 MVA for a total power of 37 MW. Each one of these stations include two of our Gamesa E-2.5 MVA-SB-I high efficiency solar inverters, which rates one of the highest performance records in the market (99.1% of maximum yield, 98.8% of European yield).

Each station also includes the step-up transformer and the medium voltage protection switchgear. All of this is integrated into a 40-foot ISO maritime container, with all the interconnections made and tested in the factory, for ease of transportation and field installation.
