Ingeteam Makes Its Largest Supply Of Solar Inverters In The US
Ingeteam Inc., a manufacturer of solar inverters based in Milwaukee (Wisconsin), has supplied 350 MW of solar inverters for two photovoltaic projects in California that are being built by Swinerton Renewable Energy, one of the leading US companies dedicated to the EPC and O&M business (Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Operations & Maintenance).
CIM Group's Aquamarine Westside solar photovoltaic plant is located in Kings County and has a nominal rated power of 250MW. The High Desert solar PV plant (100MW) is located in San Bernardino County.
For these two projects, Ingeteam has supplied its power station solution, which integrates a 3.28MW solar PV inverter, a padmounted medium voltage transformer, an auxiliary services transformer and a low voltage panel.
