Grid integration specialist GPTech has signed an agreement with fellow Spanish company Grupo Ortiz to supply inverter stations to a 35 MW PV plant in Honduras.
Grupo Ortiz is overseeing construction and maintenance of the facility, known as the Marcovia Fase I plant, which is located in the municipality of Marcovia in Choluteca.
The installation will be able to reach 42.38 MWp under optimal operating conditions. To ensure optimal operation, GPTech will develop 24 GPTech APIS solutions. Each APIS (Advanced Power Integrated Station) consists of a 40-foot container including necessary power conversion equipment (PV-WD inverters) and MV transformers. GPTechs technology will allow the conversion and adaptation of the electric signal coming from the PV panels to the power distribution grid under high demand conditions, covering the most complex and delicate stage of the power generation process.
GPTech CEO Javier Landero said the project solidified the companys leading position in providing integration solutions for renewable energy projects in Central America.
GPTech partnered with Grupo Ortiz on the 80 MW Horus I and II PV plants in Guatemala, providing integrated power conversion solutions for the projects.
The first phase of the Horus project was inaugurated by Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina in February.
