KACO new energy supplies 40 MW inverter power for British solar parks.
Neckarsulm, 04. June 2014 – In Great Britain the forecast for photovoltaic looks especially good: According to leading analysts, the Island will be one of Europe’s largest markets this year. In five PV parks KACO new energy is already supplying solar power to the grid.
Most will be puzzled about who or what is behind Clawdd Du and only lovers of medieval history and the Celtic language will recognise the Welsh term for a boundary wall to keep out the Normans. Today a powerful 13.5 MW PV park in Carmarthenshire bears this name.
That means that KACO new energy has put 38.5 MW inverter output to date onto the European PV map in this boom market thanks to this PV system and four others in Cardiff, Cornwall and Worcestershire.
The solar power plants in Trequite (11 MW), Trewidland (5 MW) and Evesham (3.7 MW), as well as the one in Clawdd Du, were all constructed using a central design concept: The Powador XP500-HV TL and XP550-HV TL central inverters ensure smooth feed in. In Woden Park on the other hand, 624 Powador 9600 string inverters are responsible for getting about 5 MW of solar power onto the grid in the Cardiff region. That is further proof of the extent to which these middleweight champions are capable.
RALOS new energy UK Ltd. was responsible for the conception and construction of all of the parks. They are a team of solar professionals with long-standing expertise and several decades of cumulative PV experience. RALOS new energy selected YINGLI modules from the YL series with outputs of between 245 W and 255 W for the PV generators.
The next PV power plants in the pipeline for England are Foxburrow Farm, Walk Barn Farm and the Isle of Wight. The last one is probably well-known internationally – as being one of the favourite holiday destinations on the British Isles.
