Sungrow, the inverter and energy storage system solution supplier, and Samsung C&T’s Engineering & Construction , recently signed a contract to supply its MV-integrated 1500V string inverter solution SG320HX to an 814 MWac PV project in Qatar.
The project is expected to be completed by 2024, and will become the largest solar plant in Qatar, which will greatly increase the amount of local green energy, and effectively offset the carbon emissions of oil and gas resources; thus helping the low-carbon transition.
Although Qatar, is a solar hub in the Middle East, the country has many industrial cities and large carbon emissions from oil and gas facilities. With an ambitious goal of carbon neutrality, energy transition in Qatar is imminent.
This 814 MWac PV project signed is the second solar power plant locally built, and can generate approximately 1,800 GWh of clean electricity each year and reduce 900 thousand tons of carbon dioxide emissions. It will become the main driver of the green development of local natural gas resources and carbon neutrality.
Mr. JUYOUL KIM, Vice President and Head of Procurement & Estimation Department of Samsung C&T said: “The Qatar project is an important step for Samsung C&T to expand its global renewable energy business. We believe that this cooperation will be able to successfully complete the project and provide a demonstration for the world.”
James Wu, Senior Vice President of Sungrow and Global Sales & Marketing President of PV & Storage BG, said: “Qatar has become an important country in the global solar energy development and an important part of Sungrow’s business in the Middle East. It is a great honor to cooperate with Samsung C&T this time. Sungrow will continue to provide partners with high-quality PV and storage solutions based on its profound insight and project experience in the Middle East market, ensure timely delivery of projects and customer investment return, and accelerate the local energy transition.”
