BayWa r.e, a leading global developer, O&M service provider, solar wholesaler and energy solutions provider has used Huawei 1500V Smart PV Solution exclusively for solar park Don Rodrigo project in southern Spain. Don Rodrigo is currently the largest project realised by BayWa r.e.
The total capacity of Don Rodrigo is 175MW and will achieve an annual output of 300 GWh, which corresponds to the annual electricity consumption of approximately 93,000 Spanish homeowners. The construction of the plant with Huawei 1500V smart string inverter was completed in December 2018. The BayWa r.e. service team will be responsible for the ongoing technical operation of the plant.
The subsidy-free Don Rodrigo plant has opted for Huawei 1500V Smart PV Solution with its higher yields, smart O&M as well as lower cost proving attractive. With multi-MPPT design, the string inverter minimizes PV string mismatch and the plant yield can be increased by 1.5%-2%. The fully sealed and IP65 protection makes the inverter perform better when faced with dust, cold weather or overcast days. Compared with 1100V, 1500V solution achieves lower BOS (Balance of System).
Huawei 1500V Smart PV Solution provides vast benefits such as lower LCOE, higher yields, safe and reliable, and lower failure rate for the industry as it moves into a post-subsidy era, helping to reach the grid parity. With Huawei Smart PV Solution, the project will set the benchmark for the digitalization of Spanish solar industry.
