Advanced Energy chosen by Swinerton for 325 MW solar projects


Colorado-headquartered power conversion company Advanced Energy (AE) has revealed that it has been chosen to supply 325 MW of its 1000NX inverter to EPC Swinerton Renewable Energy projects across North America.

The deal will see AE ship and install its top-rated inverter later this year to large-scale solar projects in the U.S., continuing through to the middle and latter part of 2016 as Swinerton looks to ramp up its solar PV portfolio in the country.

Delivering a 98% weighed efficiency rated by the California Energy Commission (CEC), the AE 1000NX is widely seen as a reliable, high performing solution that is ideal for large-scale solar projects located in a range of climates.

The central inverter has a closed-loop air-to-liquid cooling system that offers maximum rated power at desert temperatures, making it ideal for many parts of the U.S.’s best solar regions.

"After evaluating the inverter market we determined that the AE 1000NX inverter will allow us to maximize our solar energy production while reducing BOS and construction costs," said Swinerton VP and division manager George Hershman.

Swinerton has landed an impressive roll-call of large-scale solar projects across the U.S. already this year, most notably a 104 MW contract at the Utah Red Hills solar plant.
