By Alyssa Dalton
August 2, 2012 – SMA Group has entered into a contract with Canadian independent power producer Northland Power, to equip the company with SMA Medium-Voltage Power Platforms for solar projects in Ontario, totalling up to 130MW.
The projects are expected to be completed in mid-2014.
“We are confident that SMA’s MV Power Platforms will provide the optimum quality, performance and compliance with Ontario domestic content that Northland requires to successfully implement a project of this scale,” said Jurgen Krehnke, president of SMA Canada.
The MV Power Platform is SMA’s utility-scale direct medium-voltage connection solution which, for this project, will employ cUL listed 1000V Sunny Central inverters that can operate in temperatures as low as -40ºC.
