Sungrow has signed a contract with Indian Larsen & Toubro (L&T) to supply inverter skid solutions for a 2.2 GWac PV plant for the NEOM green hydrogen project in Saudi Arabia.
NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC) will integrate up to 4 GW of solar and wind energy to produce up to 600 tons per day of carbon-free hydrogen by the end of 2026, and Sungrow is already engaged in the project.
Sungrow said the solution is an innovation combining the advantages of both central and string inverters, featuring a 1.1 MW single unit as the minimum, and the maximum capacity can be expanded to 8.8 MW by combing eight units together, bringing a more flexible design for different blocks sizes and making the on-site operation and maintenance easier.
Sungrow also claimed that the solution is resilient to sandy, dry and windy conditions, and can work stably in extremely high temperatures. Moreover, it is equipped with intelligent string-level diagnosis to improve the power yield and real-time parallel arc detection to protect system safety further noting that these advantages help lower the overall operational cost.
