ABB delivers PV solar power plant solution

By Gerald Ondrey |

ABB (Zurich, Switzerland; www.abb.com) has completed delivery and commissioning of the 1-MW Totana photovoltaic (PV) power plant located in the region of Murcia in Spain. In a year, Totana produces 2.2 GWh of grid-quality electric power and displaces some 1,350 tons of greenhouse gas emissions. The turnkey solution was completed in a record time of four months, and is based on ABB’s modular concept for PV power plants. It includes solar trackers, electrical balance of plant, instrumentation and controls. The equipment is delivered pre-assembled and factory-tested to reduce on-site work and time. The project scope also covered installation and commissioning, as well as the associated civil works. The fast-track delivery enabled the plant owner, Global Capital Finance, to meet the time criteria and qualify for the maximum feed-in tariff for photovoltaic power plants. ABB’s photovoltaic concept includes patented optimization technologies that will help increase the plant performance ratio to around 80%, nearly 5% higher than average industry standards for such applications, says the company. This clearly leads to higher energy efficiency and translates into increased power production and higher revenues for the operator. ABB…
