Sungrow, the leading global inverter and energy storage system supplier, announced that the Company supplied Comerc Renew, BU (business unit) of centralized renewable generation of Comerc Energia Group, with its featured 1+X Modular Inverter solutions to a 267 MWp PV project in Brazil.The project is seen as a significant milestone in Brazil’s renewable ambitions.

The PV plant, named São João Paracatu project, is an important project in Comerc Renew’s development portfolio. Sungrow’s 1+X Modular Inverter for this project is an innovation combining the advantages of both central and string inverters, featuring a 1.1 MW single unit as the minimum, and the maximum capacity can be expanded to 8.8 MW by combining eight units together, bringing a more flexible design for different blocks sizes and making the on-site operation and maintenance easier. Each module is designed with an independent MPPT, further improving the power generation capacity of the power plant.

Sungrow supplied the complete solution, including the inverters, power transformers, medium voltage switchgears, and auxiliary systems – everything set in a 40-ft container. This project will be supplied with 21 units of 8.8 MW, 7 units of 6.6 MW inverters, and 1,050 combiner boxes with 20 inputs, in addition to all services of cold and hot commissioning and Operation and Maintenance (O&M) training.

“Our success in the renewable space in Brazil is the outcome of the support from our partners. We are pleased to be working with Sungrow, a technology leader in the solar field, on a project of such magnitude,” commented Pedro Fiuza, Vice President of centralized renewable generation of Comerc Energia Group.

“As an industry leader in the solar market, Sungrow welcomes the opportunity to work with Comerc Renew on another essential project for Brazil. We previously collaborated with Comerc Renew on their Helio Valgas 662 MWp and Varzea da Palma 118 MWp projects and are proud to supply the new São João Paracatu 267 MWp project. We look forward to collaborating further with Comerc Renew,” said Rafael Ribeiro, President of Sungrow Brazil.
