This time last year, we announced that we were working with Krinner and Eiffage on the largest PV power plant in Europe, developed by Neoen. We are excited to announce that the power plant is now fully complete, and connected to the grid. The project was completed 5 weeks ahead of schedule. The site spans 250 hectares, and is located near Bordeaux. The power plant will produce a total peak capacity of 300 MW, enough energy to supply the daytime consumption of Bordeaux’s entire population.
Schneider Electric was responsible for the entire electrical conversion chain, and installed and commissioned 200 PV Box RT units, each containing two Conext Core XC central inverters, turnkey high voltage substation, and monitoring and control using Conext Control (with a dedicated Power Plant Controller). Schneider Electric is also providing a long term service contract. Thanks to everyone involved who made the installation and commissioning a success!
