GoodWe, the Chinese solar inverter and energy storage solutions company, has proudly announced the successful completion of the Solar Citra Project, a substantial 10.95 MW solar photovoltaic (PV) venture in Perak, Malaysia. This project stands as a testament to GoodWe's commitment to providing comprehensive solar solutions and signifies a significant step in Malaysia's Large-Scale Solar 4 Program (LSS4).
The Solar Citra Project is notable for being GoodWe's first large-scale solar farm initiative fully executed using its integrated one-stop PV solution. Underpinning this endeavor are 52 250kW-HT string inverters, two 6750kVA medium-voltage (MV) stations, an SCB3000 communication device, and a SolarOS monitoring platform.
A pivotal component of this system is the 250kW-HT inverter, designed to maximize energy efficiency while minimizing operational and maintenance costs. The MV station, ingeniously enclosed within a transportable container, incorporates essential switchgear and transformers to ensure seamless power transformation within the system. Here, the HT inverter efficiently converts DC power into AC power, while the MV station elevates AC voltage from 800V to 33kV for grid connection and distribution.
To facilitate data acquisition and transmission from various system components, such as energy generation, weather conditions, and equipment status, the SCB3000 communication device plays a crucial role. Additionally, station-level monitoring is enabled through GoodWe's SolarOS, an online platform designed for power plant control. This platform equips plant operators with real-time analysis capabilities, enabling remote system management via internet access.
James Hou, GoodWe's APAC Sales Head, conveyed the company's pride in supplying their utility solution to the Solar Citra Project. He reiterated GoodWe's commitment to offering high-quality, cost-effective solutions for clean energy requirements, emphasizing their belief in Malaysia's sustainable development and their pivotal role in driving it forward.
The Solar Citra Project is anticipated to generate an impressive 24.095 GWh of clean energy annually, significantly reducing annual carbon emissions by 17.1 metric tons. This remarkable achievement is also expected to yield approximately $1 million in revenue.
Key partners in this noteworthy project include Solarvest Holdings Berhad, responsible for providing engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) solutions, and M K Land Holdings Berhad, serving as the project's owner and developer. This collaboration exemplifies the collective effort towards advancing sustainable and clean energy initiatives in the region.
