Sungrow equipment to power subsidy-free PV, storage park in UK

Sungrow SG3125HV Central Inverter

March 15 (Renewables Now) - Chinese solar inverters manufacturer Sungrow Power Supply Co Ltd (SHE:300274) today said it is delivering inverters and battery storage capacity for what will be the largest zero-subsidy solar-plus-storage complex in the UK.

The project will include a 34.7-MW solar park and a 27 MW/30 MWh energy storage facility in Yorkshire, northern England, planned to be switched on in October 2019. The project was developed and is being built by a unit of Gridserve ENEA Projects Ltd, while Warrington Borough Council will purchase it following completion.

The Sungrow equipment that will be used includes SG3125HV-MV inverter stations and 2.5 MW-1 Hour ESS systems for utility-scale applications. The project is being financing through debt from Investec Bank plc and Leapfrog Bridge Finance.

Gridserve plans to soon launch construction on a 25.7-MW project in Hull, England, that will also use Sungrow’s solutions, the Chinese firm said.
