New 21 MW contract for Sillans-la-Cascade project in France

Gamesa Electric installed PV capacity in the country will reach almost 100 MW after this project commissioning, becoming a reliable partner for this market.

Sillans-la-Cascade will be our largest PV project in France to date and will join our seven previous projects in this country. Our footprint in the country will be close to 100 MW, including inverters from our Gamesa Electric PV 2X series family, which combines maximum power with large flexibility for best LCoE.

For this project, the supply will be of two units of our Gamesa Electric PV Stations 4500, two units of Gamesa Electric PV Stations 5000 and one unit of our 2.5 MVA Gamesa Electric 2X series PV Station. All of these stations include our high performance Gamesa Electric PV 2X series inverters integrated into 40 feet containers.

Customer specifications require really demanding temperature conditions for both inverters (50ºC) and transformers (55ºC). Solutions provided by Gamesa Electric assure outstanding performance with maximum reliability, even for harsh environments.

A great level of product customization has been considered to comply with client requirements as well as with the French Network Code and regulations. Among others, a step-up transformer with inrush current limiter has been included to comply with the regulations of ENEDIS (the French Medium Voltage network operator).
