Gloucestershire based energy expert SIEL has been commissioned to install the first phase of the one of the UK’s largest roof mounted Grid Connected solar installations. Totaling 600kWp, the new system will be installed at NYSE Euronext’s new UK state of the art data centre.
The installation will comprise of 6 SOLEIL LV PV converters each rated 100kWp. Each Inverter, will be configured with 29 strings of high output Multicrystalline PV modules manufactured by Tenesol, connected via intelligent parallel string boxes.
A full communications and data-logging system based on SIEL’s own TGS2 monitoring platform will be installed providing real time surveillance of operational status, alarms & production data for both the individual Inverters and PV strings.
The initial installation is projected to generate in excess of 450,000kW/hrs of electricity and save over 255 tonnes of CO2 per annum.
The SOLEIL converters are manufactured by SIEL UK’s parent Company SIEL SpA in Italy. SIEL SpA have developed a comprehensive product portfolio of G83/1 compliant ‘SOLEIL’ PV Inverters under the brand name of ‘SIAC’ in the power range from 10 – 500kWp for both ‘Stand-a-Lone’ and ‘Grid Connected’ applications. Systems from 80kWp can be supplied in MV configuration. Larger systems can also be supplied as a PV containerised solution up to 1MVA including MV transformer & switchgear (PS1000).
