SMA says it has entered into a contract with Canadian independent power producer Northland Power Inc. to equip the company with SMA's Medium-Voltage Power Platforms (MV Power Platforms) for 130 MW of solar projects in Ontario.
With completion expected in mid-2014, Northland's solar portfolio will consist of 13 solar farms, each with a capacity of 10 MW. SMA began working with Northland Power on this project more than two years ago.
The MV Power Platform is SMA's utility-scale direct medium-voltage connection solution that uses Sunny Central technology. For this project, the MV Power Platform will employ 1,000-volt Sunny Central inverters that can operate in temperatures as low as -40 degrees C, according to the company.
