ABB partners with Complete Energy Solutions to drive greener energy provision with launch of 20 MW photovoltaic power plant. ABB’s PVS800 central inverters are successfully feeding power to the distribution network at the first megawatt-scale photovoltaic (PV) power plant in Egypt.

Commissioned in two phases throughout 2017, the 20 MW solar power plant, located in Toshka, Egypt, was constructed by Complete Energy Solutions (CES), a key Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) company specializing in turnkey solar solutions, with operations based in Egypt and UAE.

“The solar plant will add reliable power capacity to the grid in Toshka, which will support agricultural infrastructure development in this area. The plant also utilizes green technologies helping to reduce CO2 emissions as well as the usage of conventional sources of energy, reducing the petro chemical subsidies for Egypt,” says Yasser El Shazly, Executive Director, Complete Energy Solutions.

ABB scope of supply comprises the complete electrical and automation solution for the plant, including the design and engineering works. The product solution includes PVS800-IS inverter stations, PVS800-MVP pad mounted medium-voltage (MV) solutions, string boxes and a SCADA system for controlling the plant, complemented with site testing, commissioning and start-up services.

“The high efficiency and easy-to-maintain industrial design of our inverters combined with ABB’s local best-in-class technical support offer customers a real, reliable and bankable solution that we are able to support for years to come,” says Ahmed Radwan, head of Drives and Solar Business in ABB Egypt.

‘’We are proud to have participated in this eminent project, which serves the country’s ambitious renewable energy plans, generates a positive environmental impact and makes the best use of its natural resources,” added Naji Jreijiri, Managing Director of ABB in Egypt, Central & North Africa.

The 20 MW project is realized with 8 PVS800-IS inverter stations with a 2,000 kW rating. Each inverter station contains two PVS800 central inverters, featuring an efficient, reliable, compact and easy-to-maintain product design. The inverter stations are connected to PVS800-MVP medium-voltage pad mounted solutions, containing a MV transformer and ring main unit (RMU) for the MV connection.
