Belectric® presents new 2.0 MegaWattBlock® at Intersolar 2011
Munich—On the first day of Intersolar in Munich (8 June 2011), Belectric® presented the new 2.0 MegaWattBlock® for solar power plants. The 2.0 MegaWattBlock® is a standardised plant unit with nominal power of 2,000 kWp, any number of which can be combined to create larger ground-mounted solar power plants. The standardised system design, intelligent grid stabalisation technology and Belectric's many years of experience in plant engineering and construction make solar power generation more cost efficient and reliable than ever before.
From the very start, the aim of the Belectric® development team was to further decrease the average electricity production costs. Bernhard Beck, CEO of Belectric Solarkraftwerke GmbH, comments: "For us, the levelised costs of electricity are one of the most important factors on the energy market. A significant reduction in these costs opens up new opportunities and paves the way for the next generation of solar power plants. And that's exactly what our new 2.0 MegaWattBlock stands for." This cost efficiency is achieved thanks to the highly standardised Belectric® system design with perfectly co-ordinated power plant components, which are produced for the most part in house. The special power plant inverter with direct 20 kV medium voltage feed-in is tailored to application with thin-film modules. The dynamic reactive power control enables a significant increase in network stability. The entire design thereby explains the above-average system efficiency of the new Belectric® solar power plants. "Power generation at these power plants can compete with offshore wind power," declares Bernhard Beck. Our modular 2.0 MegaWattBlock® enables us to customise the solution to match the customers power requirements. As the new power plant has been designed to be installed and operated in extreme environmental conditions, it can be deployed in any region of the world.
Belectric is the global market leader for the development and implementation of ground-mounted solar power plants and photovoltaic rooftop installations (EPC). At Belectric, engineers and project developers conduct interdisciplinary research in all areas of solar technology and develop innovative technologies that form the basis for the environmentally friendly energy supply of the future. Unlike most competitors, the company offers photovoltaic systems from a single source. The plants are realised – from planning and construction through to operation – without sub-contractors. Alongside solar power generation, the subsidiary Belectric Drive concentrates on the combination of photovoltaics and e-mobility. More information at www.belectric.com.
