BELECTRIC connects 1500 volt solar power plant to the grid
Kolitzheim, Germany – BELECTRIC connected the world's first solar power plant with 1500 volt operation to the grid at the end of June.
The ground-mounted solar power plant was developed and constructed over the past months. The project was financed by Deutsche Kreditbank AG. The 1500 volt inverter station was provided by PADCON GmbH, a company specializing in state-of-the-art energy distribution systems and plant monitoring. The liquid-cooled outdoor central inverters were manufactured by Power Conversion, a Berlin-based division of GE Energy, and work with a maximum DC input voltage of 1500 volts. Power Conversion and PADCON worked together to integrate the inverters into the system.
"The company's expertise in lowering the cost of solar power generation through continuous innovation is the foundation of our company's long-term development strategy," said Bernhard Beck, CEO of BELECTRIC Solarkraftwerke GmbH, emphasizing the importance of the new generation of power plant.
