Sineng Electric Supplies 1,016MW of Inverters to the Al Kahfah PV Project in Saudi Arabia

Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, July 1, 2024 — Sineng Electric, a global leading PV+ESS solution provider, has partnered with Larsen & Toubro and supplied 1,016MW of its 6.6MW MV turnkey stations to the Al Kahfah solar farm in Saudi Arabia. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in Sineng’s mission to deliver innovative and efficient energy solutions worldwide.

The Al Kahfah PV project is part of the National Renewable Energy Programme (NREP) led by the Ministry of Energy. The initiative aims to refine the energy mix for power generation, decrease dependence on liquid fuels and contribute to Saudi Vision 2030 – to generate 50% of its electricity from renewables by 2030. Jointly owned by Badeel and ACWA Power, the project will distribute and sell the generated power to the Saudi Power Procurement Company (SPPC) via a power purchase agreement (PPA).

For this project, Sineng presents its EP-6600-HB-UD/33 which is tailor-made to excel in the subtropical desert climate of Al Kahafah. This inverter can deliver 6,600kW output power without derating, even in ambient temperatures of up to 50ºC. Notably, the inverter incorporates a smart forced air cooling design, where the rotation speed of cooling fans is precisely controlled by DSP controller based on sensed internal temperature. This feature ensures that the device minimizes energy loss effectively. With the maximum efficiency of up to 99% and advanced three-level topology technology, Sineng’s turnkey solution significantly amplifies the power generation while enhancing the return on investments.

Mr. Qiang Wu, Chairman of Sineng Electric, emphasized, “Sineng has been playing an instrumental role in diversifying energy sources in the Middle East and decarbonizing the region’s economy. Our ongoing collaboration with Larsen & Toubro, following the success of our joint efforts in the Ar Rass project, symbolizes our commitment to maximizing the share of renewable energy. ”
