ABB partners with Complete Energy Solutions to drive greener energy provision with launch of 20MW 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.
"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.
"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.
