Gamesa Electric will supply 28.5 MW of Proteus solar inverters in Bosnia and Herzegovina

Gamesa Electric debuts in The Balkans with the supply of Inverters and PV Power Stations to MET Consulting d.o.o. 28.5 MW Zvizdan Solar Farm

  • The project is located in Herzegovina.
  • MET Consulting is part of FEAL d.o.o., the largest manufacturer of aluminum profiles on the domestic market.

Gamesa Electric has signed an agreement with MET Consulting d.o.o. to supply its Proteus PV inverters to the Zvizdan Solar Farm that the customer is developing in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The scope of the project includes the design, supply and commissioning of 7 units of PV4500 Proteus Inverters, supplied as 3 units PVS9100 + 1unit PVS4500 integrated, fully assembled and factory tested PV Power Stations, and their corresponding spare parts. On top of that, Gamesa Electric will also supply the Orchestra Power Plant Controller (PPC).

“We are delighted to be making our debut in the Balkans with a great client“, said Enrique de la Cruz, Sales Director of Solar & Storage at Gamesa Electric. “This project is another example of how competitive the Proteus series inverter is in large-scale projects. They are inverters with a power of up to 4,700 kVA/unit, reaching up to plug & play solutions of 9,400 kVA at medium voltage. With such high-power ratings, the number of units can be reduced and therefore the LCoE of the project can be optimised. In addition, the record efficiency levels of 99.4% and the low THD make the performance of the Proteus PV solutions excellent”.

 

Larger inverters for reduced costs

Gamesa Electric Proteus PV 4700 inverter achieves one of the highest power densities in the market, making possible to supply a complete plug & play PV station including MV transformer and switchgear of up to 9.4 MVA in a standard 40 ft skid.

High nominal power together with a compact design and outstanding values of electrical efficiency mean relevant LCoE improvements, thanks first to the reduction of the number of PV station units per project and therefore saving logistics, construction, DC cabling, commissioning and operation and maintenance costs. On the other hand, higher efficiency values mean higher energy production at PV plant level, contributing to a further reduction of project LCoE.
