GE plans to supply 220MW LV5 Series solar inverters for Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) solar project in Dubai.
The inverters are part of a frame agreement between GE and TSK. GE will supply outdoor solar SKIDs to TSK to be installed at the DEWA site, with GE's scope of work including LV5 Series inverters, transformers and switchgears.
Dalya Al Muthanna, president & CEO, GE Gulf, said, "We're extremely proud to partner with DEWA and TSK on this groundbreaking solar project. Their trust in our technology for their utility-scale project adds weight to the trust shown by various industry players in GE's solar offerings. GE is committed to supporting the UAE's sustainable energy strategy to provide clean power for generations to come, and this project marks an important proof point for that."
Hani Majzoub, renewables sales leader for the Middle East, North Africa and Turkey for GE's Power Conversion business, added, "The Middle East is one of the most promising solar markets in the world, and our commitment to providing sustainable power for our region is highlighted through this project. We will continue to support utilities in the region with innovative technology such as our LV5 Series 1,500V inverters, which provide up to 3 percent cost savings in both CAPEX and OPEX. In addition to technology innovation, GE can also provide financing, long-term service and digital solutions to help enable efficient solar farms."
The delivery of the 220MW DEWA project is expected to start in summer 2016.
