GoodWe Achieves a 10.95MW Large-Scale PV Project in Malaysia, Debuting Its One-Stop Ground Solution

IPOH, Malaysia, Sept. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — GoodWe, the global leader in solar inverters and energy storage solutions, announces the successful completion of the Solar Citra Project, a 10.95-megawatt (MW) solar photovoltaic (PV) project located in Perak, Malaysia. This achievement is one of the initial projects to connect to the grid under the aegis of the large-scale solar 4 program (LSS4) in Malaysia. The project is expected to yield 24.095 gigawatt-hours (GWh) of clean energy annually, leading to yearly revenues of $1 million and a reduction in carbon emissions by 17.1 metric tons.

The Solar Citra Project marks a milestone as GoodWe’s first large-scale solar farm project to be fully implemented with its integrated one-stop PV solution. This comprehensive solution comprises 52 units of 250kW-HT string inverters, 2 units of 6750kVA Medium-voltage (MV) Stations, the SCB3000 communication device, and the SolarOS monitoring platform.

The 250kW-HT inverter is designed to optimize energy efficiency while minimizing costs of operations and maintenance (O&M). The MV Station, conveniently housed in a transportable container, incorporates essential switchgears and transformer to ensure seamless power transformation within the system. In the system, the HT inverter efficiently converts generated DC energy into AC, while the MV Station elevates AC voltage from 800V to 33kV for grid connection and distribution.

At the monitoring level, the SCB3000 facilitates the data acquisition and transmission from system components, including energy generation, weather conditions, and equipment status. Furthermore, station-level monitoring is realized through GoodWe’s SolarOS, an online platform for power plant control, which enables plant operators to make informed decisions according to real-time analysis and manage the system remotely via internet access.

This integrated system empowers project developers with customized solutions tailored to their unique requirements. By optimizing energy yields and streamlining O&M of the power plant, it ensures maximized return on investment and reduced carbon emissions.

James Hou, GoodWe’s APAC Sales Head, added, “GoodWe is proud to supply our utility solution to the Solar Citra Project. As a global smart energy solution provider, we have stood the test of time and remain committed to providing our clients with high-quality, cost-effective solutions for their clean energy needs. We firmly believe in the sustainable development of Malaysia and promise to be the main driving force in the process.”

Since entering the utility sector, GoodWe has established competency centers globally, with local experts leading the solutions both commercially and technically. According to the company, it has signed deals for large-scale projects in Germany, Italy, Spain, and Ireland. The completion of the project in Malaysia further solidifies its prowess in providing comprehensive solutions, enabling customers to attain sustainable and efficient energy solutions.

Key partners in this project include Solarvest Holdings Berhad, providing engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning (EPCC) solutions, and M K Land Holdings Berhad, the project owner and developer.
