skytron energy awarded new 50 MW PV project in Romania


Berlin-based skytron energy – which specializes in the development of monitoring, control and supervision systems for renewable energy projects – has announced that it has been awarded a 50 MW PV project in Romania by local EPC company, LSG Building Solutions.

The plant is scheduled to be commissioned before the end of 2013, and follows the successful completion of two previous PV plants, both located in the Romanian Giurgiu district, and both a collaboration between skytron and LSG Building Solutions.

skytron was again chosen for the project thanks to its expert knowledge of Romania’s grid system, which requires a different approach to other, more typical grids. skytron’s power plant controller adapts the active power feed into the grid in response to any changes in grid frequency and the load capacity the PV plant can handle at any particular moment.

To achieve this, skytron must calculate the available PV power based on information provided by the company’s real-time condition monitoring system. Such a frequency stabilization system is unique because it is implemented without the need for expensive energy storage facilities.

"We are now realizing our third major project with skytron energy," confirmed LSG’s general manager for Romania, Gerhard Lipkovich. "Initial teething troubles were quickly solved by skytron’s dependable cooperation and willingness to provide all the support and training necessary.

"skytron energy were able to complete the final commissioning of 50 MW, including the complex controllers, in just two days," continued Lipkovich. "All of this convinced us about skytron’s proficiency."
