Sungrow, a global solution provider of energy storage system and inverter, has announced the signing of contract with Larsen & Toubro (L&T). The contract is to supply inverter skid solutions for 2.2 GW AC PV plant for the NEOM green hydrogen project. The project is situated in Saudi Arabia. The solution is a development that combines the benefits of both central and string inverters. It has a minimum capacity of 1.1 MW and a maximum capacity of 8.8 MW by combining eight units. Each module is constructed with an independent maximum power point tracking, thus, enhancing the power generating capacity of the power plant.
By the end of 2026, the NEOM Green Hydrogen Company, a joint venture of NEOM, Air Products, and ACWA Power, will bring together a maximum 4 GW of solar and wind energy to generate up to 600 tonnes of carbon-free hydrogen per day.
Sungrow is already working on the project. Sungrow and L&T had earlier entered into an agreement for the delivery of 400 MWh energy storage systems with a DC capacity of 536 MW (600 MWh) to the project.
