According to the Chinese company (Sungrow) their inverters, particularly the SG250HX-IN-20 inverter and their MVS6650-LV turnkey medium voltage stations can withstand complex environments such as extreme temperatures, dry and dusty conditions, which are exact characteristics of the Kom Ombo solar project, thanks to their IP66 and C5 protection rating and intelligent forced air-cooling technology. The inverters are also compatible with two-sided solar panels and solar trackers installed at the site.

Sungrow will work closely with Sterling and Wilson Pvt. Ltd., a multinational company engaged in energy services, engineering, construction, and manufacturing that has been awarded the engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract for the Kom Ombo solar plant, which will feed 200 MWp into the Egyptian Electricity Transmission Company (EETC) grid.

Commercial operation for the Kom Ombo solar plant set for Q3 2022

According to the Saudi Arabian power producer (Acwa Power), the Kom Ombo solar power plant will start its commercial operations by the third quarter of next year.

The plant will supply approximately 650 GWh per year to 130,000 Egyptian households or it’s thereabouts at the least, and contribute to the Egyptian government’s target to generate 42 percent of the country’s electricity from renewable energy sources by 2035.

The Kom Ombo solar power plant will also save the North African country’s emission of nearly 336,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum.
