Ingeteam receives a 380 MW photovoltaic order from Acciona in Australia

Acciona Energía has chosen its energy conversion and control technology for the Aldoga project.
Ingeteam has been selected by Acciona Energía as a technology partner to provide its energy conversion and control technology for a 380 MW photovoltaic project in Australia.

Aldoga Photovoltaics is located 20 kilometers northwest of Gladstone on the central coast of Queensland.

Its construction will create around 350 jobs during the 18-month construction phase.

This new contract reaffirms the technological alliance between both companies over the years.

The solar farm is linked to a 15-year PPA with Queensland state energy company Stanwell Corporation, which plans to use the energy produced at Aldoga to power its green hydrogen project, Central Queensland Hydrogen (CQ-H2).

The Aldoga Solar Park will generate clean electricity to supply nearly 185,000 homes and will avoid the emission of more than 930,000 tons of CO2 each year, playing a key role in accelerating the country’s decarbonization.

Ingeteam supplied the project with 81 plants equipped with 157 INGECON SUN 3Power C series central photovoltaic inverters, a model that raises the bar for solar inverter technology in Australia.

The contract signed between both companies also includes the start-up and the Power Plant Controller (PPC) system.

The commercial director of Ingeteam’s photovoltaic business, Jesús Echarte, stated: “Australia is experiencing an intense process of decarbonizing its economy, maximizing the use of renewable resources.

“We are very happy to contribute to this goal with our experience and technology.

“Ingeteam has experienced exponential growth since its arrival in the country more than 10 years ago.

“To date, Ingeteam has supplied its technology for numerous projects in Australia and has managed to diversify its offering for a wide range of sectors.

“The company initially operated in the country’s photovoltaic sector, but now also has projects in wind energy, mining, marine, hydroelectric, energy storage, water, electric vehicle chargers and green hydrogen.”
