The industrial solutions specialist and developer and IPP Corsica Sole have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to build and maintain four PV arrays. The projects are part of a 13 MWp pipeline that Corsica Sole won under the French CRE ZNI tender.
The two companies have signed an EPC deal for one of the solar installations. The 4.78 MW project near Bastia features a BESS with 7.5 MWh of storage capacity, according to an online statement.
“This project, and those to come next, demonstrate that it is already technologically possible, economically feasible and socially beneficial today to achieve 100% renewable energy mix,” said Michael Coudyser, CEO of Corsica Sole.
NIS will handle EPC duties and provide O&M services for two years. It will also supply its own 1.5 kV inverter and oversee commissioning of the project, which will be up and running by April 2018. Construction of the other three projects will begin in 2018.
NIS aims to cumulatively deploy more than 500 MWh of battery storage capacity by the end of 2017. It currently has roughly 430 MWh in operation now, with an additional 59 MWh set for completion before the end of this year.
It offers two new power conversion applications. Its ES1000 inverter is designed to optimize grid performance, with primary, secondary and tertiary frequency regulation. Its GS1500 model, meanwhile, is a 1500V power conversion system for solar projects. It has already been paired with more than 200 MW of PV capacity worldwide.
