Experts from South Tyrolean electrical engineers Elpo have installed 4 photovoltaic systems for the agricultural company Cereals Docks at two of their sites near Venice. Since last summer, more than 15,000 polychrystaline solar modules have generated a peak output of three megawatts of solar power. In order to realise this power Elpo have used approved SolarMax C central inverters from Sputnik Engineering.
Approx. 1.5 megawatts output are provided by the roof-mounted system at the Portogruaro location in eastern Venetia alone. Three smaller systems on the roofs of the Camisano Vicentino site west of Venice together also provide approx. 1.5 megawatts photovoltaic power. In total, 14 mains-coupled SolarMax C series central inverters convert the produced direct current into mainscompliant alternating current.
“We are now able to look back on 20 years of experience in developing, producing, and selling mains-coupled inverters,” says Christoph von Bergen, Managing Director of Sputnik Engineering. “Since 2007 we have been selling our SolarMax inverters also in the booming Italian market directly via our Milanese subsidiary. Large-scale reference systems such as with Cereal Docks
demonstrate the reliability and the confidence of our customers in the Swiss quality of our products.”
