Sungrow, the leading global inverter and energy storage system solution supplier, Sungrow has signed a contract with Larsen & Toubro which will see the company supplying inverter skid solutions for a 2.2GWac PV plant for the NEOM Green Hydrogen Project in Saudi Arabia for the NEOM Green Hydrogen Company (NGHC).
NGHC will produce carbon-free hydrogen using only renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. It is estimated that the site will be capable of producing up to 600 tons of carbon-free hydrogen per day by the end of 2026.
Previously, Sungrow signed a contract with Larsen & Toubro to supply 400MWh energy storage systems – consisting of a DC capacity of 536MW/600MWh to the NEOM Green Hydrogen project.
As part of the new supply agreement, Sungrow will also deliver its 1+X Modular Inverter solution that combines the benefits of central and string inverters. Modular by design, the 1+X Modular Inverter can be installed as a single 1.1MW unit, or for maximum capacity the system can be expanded to handle up to 8.8MW by combining eight units. For this project, a 1+X Modular Inverter with an 8.8MW capacity will be supplied.
“We are proud to be associated with this prestigious project as the EPC solution provider for the renewable energy and associated evacuation infrastructure for this project,” said T Madhava Das, whole-time director and senior executive vice president of utilities at L&T. “Our success in the Renewable space in Saudi is the outcome of the support from our partners. We are very glad to partner with Sungrow on a project of such magnitude.”
