Inside the Headlines

The company’s FLEXINVERTER solution integrates solar inverter, medium voltage power transformer, auxiliary transformer, and an optional MV Ring Main Unit in a single 20-feet ISO high cube container. The advanced solution serves as a factory-integrated power conversion system platform for solar and battery energy storage applications at utility scale.



This energy storage solution will be used for the 270 MW Karapinar phase II-A and 810 MW Karapinar phase II-B solar plant, based in Turkey. This marks the company’s first implementation of FLEXINVERTER outside the United States.



GE Renewable Energy will be responsible for designing, engineering, project & site management, and commissioning of the Karapinar solar power project. The company’s advanced solar power conversion solution and its expertise in the grid solution space will help Kalyon in supplying additional renewable energy to its customers while boosting the plant’s performance and lowering capital and operation expenses.



The two solar plants are anticipated to begin commercial operations by December next year. This deal is based on GE Renewable Energy’s strong collaboration with Kalyon as the former has commissioned the same equipment for the 267 MW Karapinar phase I solar plant.



As communicated, General Electric will localize the manufacture of the DC-cables and mounting structures in Turkey. The transformers for the solar inverter system will be manufactured in the company’s Grid Solutions business manufacturing facility, based in Gebze.



Separately, GE Renewable Energy entered into a deal with ACTA MARINE for chartering of ACTA AURIGA — a SOV. The SOV will facilitate the company in commissioning 80 units of its Haliade 150-6MW turbines at the Saint-Nazaire offshore wind farm.
