Electric power conversion specialist Ingeteam has engineered the INGECON SUN FSK power station for large-scale solar plants and battery energy storage systems. The turnkey power station mounted on a full skid platform can deliver 7.2 MW of medium-voltage output power.

The company said the new station was designed to make installation and connection work in the field as easy as possible. The solution can be transported by land and by sea, can be placed directly on the trailer of a truckSource: IngeteamSource: Ingeteam or can be secured in a 40 ft container — allowing it to be installed anywhere in the world.

Flexibility designed into the unit enables integration from one to four solar or battery inverters (1,500 V DC or 1,000 V DC) to provide an output power range of 1 MW to 7.2 MW. The power station also houses the low voltage/medium voltage power transformer, the transformer oil tank, the medium voltage switchgear, the auxiliary services panel and the auxiliary services transformer, thus optimizing as much as possible the use of the available space.

The first units of this full skid type power station have been manufactured in Navarre, Spain, and are already being supplied to various photovoltaic projects.
