Sunrise provides energy under a build, own, operate model to Image Resources in a PPA for the off take from the solar farm. The asset owner is Climate Capital. The “behind the meter” system was commissioned in September 2020 and utilises an SMA Sunny Central 2500-EV and SMA MVPS 2500-20 inverter and transformer solution to ensure optimal performance. The system also consists of Longi solar panels and a Nextracker single axis tracking system.
The 3 MW solar farm is constructed in 3 arrays each of around ~1 MW, all connected to a single 2.5 MVA SMA inverter/transformer. Sunrise was also responsible for the new power line that was installed to connect the solar farm to the connection point container, 1.9km away.
The entire project was built and commissioned in 12 months, on budget, incident free and with an entirely local workforce. Sunrise are now responsible for the operations and maintenance of the solar farm.
