Leading inverter solution supplier for renewables Sungrow recently forged the contract to supply equipment to juwi for the 36 MW off-grid solar farm and a 7.5MW battery energy storage system at Sukari gold mine operated by Centamin in Egypt. The project will be the largest solar-plus-storage plant located at a mine site, significantly facilitating the energy transition for minerals in the MENA region. The project is located near the Red Sea, facing the challenge of scorching heat and high corrosion. Sungrow offers the 1,500V 6.25MW PV inverter solution and the highly integrated energy storage system with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries. The turnkey design makes it efficient on transportation, installation and O&M. Equipped with smart forced air-cooling technology and C5 high anti-corrosion capability, the solution can operate stably without derating in harsh conditions. Moreover, the solution enables higher yields in compliance with bifacial solar modules.The project is scheduled to be commissioned in the first half of 2022. It will cut the mine's diesel consumption by approximately 20 to 22 million liters per year and thus offset between 53,000 and 60,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. The solar-plus-storage micro-grid installation will enable Centamin to tangibly reduce its mine's electricity bills, as the operator will partially shift away from fuel, which is often volatile in price.A growing number of mining companies have made significant headway to cut their electricity costs and the environmental impact of their daily operations. Taking the first place according to market share in MENA, Sungrow is striving for unrelenting improvement on products and services to support resource industry to go green.
