  • Satcon Technology Corp. (SATC) Selected To Supply Solar Inverters For The Largest Ground Mount PV Installation On A Massachusetts Landfill 0 comments
    Jun 20, 2012 10:29 AM | about stocks: Q

    Yesterday, Satcon Technology, a leader in providing utility-scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy market, announced it has been selected by Southern Sky Renewable Energy and Gemma Renewable Power to supply 5 MW of its Equinox solution.

    Based in Boston, Mass., Southern Sky Renewable Energy LLC is a utility-scale solar PV developer. Gamma Renewable Power is a nationally recognized engineering, procurement, and construction (NYSE:EPC) organization specializing in the construction of renewable energy projects, and the company is presently constructing both wind and solar projects in western Illinois, Massachusetts, and central Pennsylvania.

    Equinox is Satcon's next-generation solar inverter, offering 98.5% peak efficiency. The solution is built on Satcon's industry-leading PowerGate Plus family, which consists of the most widely deployed large-scale PV inverter solutions in the world. Equinox enhances system-wide energy harvest and solar plant yield, enabling the highest return on investment in the industry. The solution's advanced utility-ready features allow remote control of real and reactive power, low-voltage ride-through and power factor control. Equinox also supports fast communications, allowing the solution to be integrated easily into SCADA systems through standardized communication interfaces.

    Satcon is powering many of the largest and most advanced utility-scale solar farms on earth, with more than 2.5 GW of solar inverter solutions shipped to date. Equinox solutions all include EDGE Adaptive Control Architecture (ACA), which enables instant voltage stabilization, frequency control, and dynamic grid support. EDGE ACA also secures the continuous operation of the PV plant in case of dynamic ground faults, achieving the performance guidelines implemented by the German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW 2008 Grid Connection Standard).

    The new site, located in Massachusetts, will be the largest ground mount PV installation on a landfill in that state. The site is expected to be energized in the first half of 2012.

    Satcon Technology Corporation is a leader in providing utility-scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy market. The company enables the industry's most advanced, reliable, and proven clean-energy alternatives. For almost three decades, Satcon has designed and delivered cutting-edge, efficient energy systems for solar photovoltaic, stationary fuel cells and energy storage systems.
