TMEIC Supplies SOLAR WARE STATION for the First Large-Scale Solar Power Generation Plant Developed by Independent Power Producer in Taiwan
Delivering an Integrated Solution That Combines PV Inverters and Peripheral Equipment
Toshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (hereinafter, “TMEIC”; President & CEO Masahiko Yamawaki) has delivered its SOLAR WARE STATION, packaged with PV inverters, step-up transformer, high-voltage interrupter and other equipment to a utility-scale PV plant of 70MW built in Chiayi County, Taiwan, operated by Vena Energy Taiwan Solar Energy Ltd. (Taipei City, Taiwan)*1, a subsidiary of Vena Energy, the largest independent power producer (IPP) of renewable energy in the Asia-Pacific region.
The Taiwanese government has declared that by 2025 it wants 20% of Taiwan’s electricity supply to come from renewable energy, up from 4%, with the target for solar power set at 20GW. The aforementioned
large-scale solar power generation plant signals Taiwan’s first such project handled by an independent power producer.
The SOLAR WARE STATION being used for the project is a PV inverter system that provides one-stop solutions by integrating the PV inverters and peripheral equipment in a single container. The quality of the stations was verified following completion of assembly and wiring prior to factory shipment. The stations were delivered as a finished product, thereby enabling on-site installation and reducing construction costs.
Comment by Vice President Naotada Sawada, Renewable Energy & New Technology Division:
“I’m extremely pleased to deliver these SOLAR WARE STATION units without incident to the first private-sector run utility-scale PV plant in the Taiwanese market. TMEIC will continue leveraging our extensive experience to benefit customers around the world. We aim to capture the top share in the PV market in Taiwan as well, where growth is anticipated.”
