Grid Feeding Solar: KACO Agrees To Supply 300MW Of Inverters To South Korean DNE

KACO new energy GmbH from Neckarsulm and the South Korean trading and EPC company DNE Solar Ltd. Reaffirm their long-term partnership with a major order: the inverter manufacturer will supply equipment with a total of 300 megawatts of power to the Asian country. DNE Solar will only purchase string inverters from KACO new energy. The wall mounted devices blueplanet 20.0 TL3 INT and 50.0 TL3 INT and the Powador 60.0 TL3 inverters are responsible for the lion’s share. Their use is primarily planned for commercial solar roofs and solar parks on a power plant scale.

“Thanks to our great passion for renewable energies and the uncompromising emphasis on service and support, DNE Solar has established a firm position in South Korea. As a pioneer of the inverter technology with a long, Made in Germany tradition, KACO new energy fits well into our customer-oriented action. I am therefore certain that with this partnership we will continue the paved path. South Korea is keen on energy independence and a multi-faceted energy mix; “Said David Kim, CEO of DNE Solar Ltd.” This is a great opportunity to develop and design the solar market.

David Mabille, CSO of KACO new energy, added: “We are very pleased to conclude this agreement with DNE Solar. It is the result of our sincere commitment to the South Korean solar market and the long partnership with DNE Solar, which has matured over many years. As one of the oldest and most important representatives of solar energy in South Korea, the company is deeply rooted in the local market. It has acquired a comprehensive knowledge of the technical and commercial needs of its customers and can provide solutions for all renewable energy and storage requirements. ”

DNE Solar Ltd. Is a leading PV specialist whose integration with the South Korean market for renewable energies reaches back to the year 2006. Nearly 300-megawatt inverter power from KACO new energy has been installed by the company since 2012 and in maintenance. DNE Solar has a comprehensive service organisation consisting of highly qualified service technicians, which are approved by KACO new energy for service and technical advice. At present, DNE Solar is expanding its business and developing energy storage systems based on its own expertise and technology experience, which the company has acquired over many years together with the growth of the company.

KACO new energy is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of inverters for grid feeding of solar power. The product range includes a complete range of services for systems ranging from detached houses to megawatt solar parks. Since 1999, the Neckarsulmer company has delivered inverters with a cumulative output of nine gigawatts. KACO new energy was the first company in the photovoltaic sector to produce its inverters CO2-neutral. The technological range of inverters for combined heat and power plants and concentrator modules as well as storage systems for solar systems extends beyond network and battery-connected solar inverters. In 2014 the company celebrated the 100th birthday of the original mother company, which was one of the first manufacturers of inverters in the late 1930s.

Enel Starts Construction Of Australia’s Largest Solar PV Project

The Bungala Solar One facility is part of the Bungala Solar PV Project and will have an installed capacity of 137.7 MW out of a total of more than 275 MW for the whole project, that will be able to produce 570 GWh per year. The facility will cover an area of approximately 300 hectares and will consist of about 420,000 polycrystalline PV modules mounted on single-axis tracker structures which will follow the Sun’s path from east to west; increasing the amount of energy produced by the plant, compared to PV modules with fixed structures. The overall Bungala Solar PV project is expected to become fully operational in early 2019.

Uganda Inaugurates Breakthrough Tororo PV Plant. A Future Model For Africa?

Production has commenced at the Tororo PV power plant; which, with 16 GWh of renewable energy generated annually, will cater for the energy requirements of 35,838 people and help reduce CO2 emissions by 7,200 tons. Overall, $19.6 million was invested to build the 10 MWp plant, with the engagement of several major organisations including KfW and FMO Development Banks, the World Bank and the EU. Attilio Pacifici, EU Ambassador said, “One of the key objectives of this plan is to encourage private sector participation in higher risk investments and we’re happy to demonstrate that Uganda is well positioned to be successful and a good model for replication.”

EDF Completes Blythe Installation Of Potent New Turbines, Powering 34,000 Homes

The Blyth Offshore Demonstrator project will produce enough low-carbon electricity to power approximately 34,000 UK households, using 8.0MW wind turbines with a power mode uprating them to 8.3MW. It will save around 57,600 tonnes of CO2 emissions each year and is the first offshore wind project to connect using 66kv rated cables. It’s also the first time that a “float and submerge” gravity-based foundation (GBF) has been used for offshore wind turbines. Each GBF is made up of more than 1,800m3 of concrete and weighs over 15,000 tonnes when fully installed on the seabed, and the structures have a total height of around 60 metres from the base to the access platform.
