Satcon Technology Corp. will deliver 30.5 MW of its PowerGate Plus solar PV inverters under a global master supply agreement with ENERGY 21 Group, a Europe-based private power utility. The solutions provided within this order will be used to power 15 solar power plants in the Czech Republic.
These installations qualify as part of the Czech Republic's feed-in-tariff program, which is projected to create over 500 MW of grid-connected PV power plants through 2011, Satcon notes. The power stations will be owned by ENERGY 21, which specializes in the construction and operation of large scale solar plants in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
In addition to 33 of Satcon's PowerGate Plus 500 kW inverters, the order also included 13 of the company's 1 MW PowerGate Plus CE inverters, four 250 kW CE PowerGate Plus inverters, and over 500 of its recently introduced smart subcombiners, the Satcon SSC solution.
