India’s waste to energy firm Ecogreen Energy has selected GE to deliver its Flexinverter Solar Power Station technology for the 130 MWp, 100 MWac Nigde Bor Solar Power Plant to be built in Nigde, Turkey.
The project is part of the YEKA GES- 4 tender issued by the Ministry of Energy (MOE) in Turkey. GE will carry out designing, engineering, procurement, and commissioning of the Solar Power Station.With this project, GE will be delivering total 1.3 GW of solar projects in Turkey.
Commenting on this, Prakash Chandra, Renewable Hybrids CEO, GE, said, “The potential for solar energy in Turkey is a reality. We are thrilled to be partnering with Ecogreen Energy on the projects and look forward to more opportunities to increase the penetration of renewable energy in Turkey and beyond.”He further informed, “GE will partner with Ecogreen in the supply and services contract of an extended scope of equipment beyond inverter stations and commissioning services.”
Turkey-based Inogen will execute the local works to fulfill the EPC scope. Already completed 1.3 GW of YEKA and Hybrids projects in Turkey,GE and Inogen will work together again for this project.
Inogen Managing Partner Professor Ali Murat Soydan said, “We are very happy and proud to partner with GE and support the company with local capability in Turkey”.
Dwelling on the technology, Chandra said, “The Flexinverter Solar Power Station is an integrated containerized solution that combines a solar inverter, medium voltage power transformer, and an optional MV Ring Main Unit, all integrated in a standard 20-feet ISO high cube container.”
He further informed, “The technology is a smart solution that helps deliver a reliable, cost-effective, plug & play, factory-integrated power conversion platform for utility scale solar and storage applications. It helps reduce capital and operation costs and ensure a more reliable plant performance.”
