Advanced Power Integrated Stations “GPTech APIS”, developed by the company GPTech, have been selected by Grupo Ortiz, which is in charge of the construction for the second phase of Horus photovoltaic facility, Horus II (30 MW), in Santa Rosa department (Guatemala). GPTech was already awarded to provide its inverters for the Horus I photovoltaic plant first phase (50 MW). This facility was inaugurated by the President of Guatemala Otto Perez Molina on last Tuesday, February 3, 2015. Therefore, GPTech consolidates its position as one of the industry leaders in the region, with a capacity of 80 MW in Guatemala and more than 200 MW solar projects under development.
GPTech solutions will allow the conversion and adaptation of the electric signal coming from the PV panels to the power distribution grid under high demand conditions, covering the most complex and delicate stage of the power generation process.
In order to achieve these goals, the company will supply its APIS solutions, 40-foot containers including power conversion equipment (PV inverters) and MV transformers among other elements. Exactly, it will be provided 19 APIS1700 solutions including 2x GPTech PV750WD inverters and 1x 1,700 kVA transformer, as well as 1 APIS1250 (2x GPTech PV500 WD inverters and 1x 1,250 kVA transformer) and 1 APIS630 (1x GPTech PV500 WD inverter and 1x 630 kVA transformer).
These integral energy solutions are especially prepared to operate in complex environments, both from a weather point of view and concerning to grid connection and technical requirements.
