TMEIC to deliver 17 units of its Solar Ware 1667 PV inverters for solar project in Hawaii

TMEIC logoToshiba Mitsubishi-Electric Industrial Systems Corporation (TMEIC) has received an order of 17 units of its SOLAR WARE 1667 outdoor PV inverters with a salt damage prevention specification for a utility scale solar power plant currently under construction on Oahu island of Hawaii.

The plant is being built by Eurus Energy America Corporation, a U.S. subsidiary of Eurus Energy Holdings Corporation.

While Hawaii is actively promoting the introduction of renewable energy, many PV inverters were installed in the state inside an enclosure with air-conditioning to prevent salt damage. TMEIC has developed a PV inverter with improved environmental durability for places such as islands and coastal areas where salt damage prevention measures are required.

TMEIC notes that its 17 units of PV inverters with a total capacity of 27.6MW were selected at this time in recognition of these performance benefits. Operation of the PV inverter units is scheduled to start around autumn 2016.

Characteristics of SOLAR WARETM 1667

  1. Feasible outdoor specification also responds to areas where salt damage may occur in such places as islands or coastal areas.
  2. World’s highest level of power conversion efficiency of 99.0%.
  3. Hybrid cooling system employed with both heat pipe and cooling fan requires no air-conditioning.
  4. Compliant with UL certification and IEC standards.
