Sungrow installs turnkey solution at 1.5MW floating solar plant in Japan

Published 13 February 2018

Inverter solution supplier for renewables Sungrow has completed the installation of its 2MW SG2000MV turnkey station at the 1.5MW floating PV plant on the Mitakabe Pond in Sanuki-shi Kagawa Prefecture, Japan.

Japan, known for its scarcity of open land, has seen the growing use of water ponds for solar plants. The 1.5MW floating PV plant, which provides power for Shikoku Electric Power CO.,Inc., costs around JPY500m, 85% of which were financed by Kagawa Bank. It is expected to generate 1.87 million kWh of power annually.

The SG2000MV turnkey station deployed at the project features its 20-foot containerized design which integrates four SG500 central inverters, a transformer, and RMU, significantly saving the cost for commissioning and installation, as well as adding protection to extreme climactic conditions.

The combiner box used in the Mitakabe Pond plant, the SunBox PVS-8M/16M-W,is specifically customized for floating solar plants and is able to work safely in wet and erosive environments.

Sungrow President Renxian Cao said: "Sungrow is delighted to be chosen as the inverter supplier for the Mitakabe Pond floating PV project. Our containerized turnkey solution has been proven as a most ideal choice in many similar plants and we are expecting to help even more in the future."
