Siemens to install the electrical systems of two photovoltaic power plants and connect them to the grid

Siemens is also planning to manufacture its own inverter portfolio in India and offer integrated medium-voltage systems on this basis. The company will present its new portfolio at the Intersolar India trade show in early December.
The present collaboration between Siemens and the solar inverter manufacturer SMA Solar Technology AG will end on December 31, 2017.

Bahawalpur project (Pakistan)
Zorlu Energy Group, based in Istanbul, Turkey, is building a solar farm in Bahawalpur, eastern Pakistan, with a capacity of approximately 100 megawatts. Siemens is supplying all necessary electrical components for turnkey connection to the high-voltage grid. The 20 inverters from WSTECH, which have a capacity of 5 MW each, are a key component of the plant. The order also includes the transformer and the medium-voltage switchgear. The solar farm is expected to be expanded to a capacity of 300 MW in the future.

Assurá project (Brazil)
The engineering firm Quebec Engenharia is building a solar farm with a total capacity of 38 MW in northeastern Brazil. Siemens is supplying seven so-called inverter stations for connection to the local distribution grid. These stations consist of the inverter from WSTECH, the transformer and the medium-voltage switchgear. Each station will have a capacity of 4.36 MW (AC).
