The Royalla Solar Farm, the largest PV plant in Oceania is now operating with Ingeteam's medium voltage power stations.
The plant, with a 20 MW rated power output, is the property of FRV (Fotowatio Renewable Ventures) and is located 23 kilometres south of Canberra, the capital city of Australia.
The solar farm, occupying almost 50 hectares, was opened by the Australian Capital Territory Energy Minister, Simon Corbell, together with the Spanish Minister for Foreign Affairs, José Manuel García-Margallo. Among the other dignitaries present at the ceremony was the Spanish ambassador for Australia, Enrique Viguera.
Thanks to the twenty, 1 MW PowerMax inverters installed inside ten medium voltage power stations, the PV plant will be able to supply power to some 4,500 Australian homes. Ingeteam started to supply its power stations in mid September 2013.
"Royalla plant is a major milestone for Australia and we're thrilled that our technology has contributed to the success of this project.," said Juan Miguel Gutiérrez, managing director of Ingeteam's Australian subsidiary.
"What's more, we have every confidence that many more plants will be developed in this country, which has tremendous potential in the field of renewable energies, and PV solar energy in particular," Gutiérrez said.
Ingeteam also announced that it is to showcase its PV inverters at the major renewable energy trade fair in Australia: All Energy 2014. Ingeteam will be at stand 2317 at this fair, which is to be held in Melbourne on the 15 and 16 October.
