New solar power plant to provide green energy

The energy division of Yusuf Bin Ahmed Company Ltd. inaugurated a 60 kW solar power plant to provide green energy to their facility in the presence of South Korean Consul General Nakyoung Oh and Khalid bin Mohammed Kanoo Group Deputy Chairman Ahmed Fawzi Kanoo, area manager-Western Province.
This power plant was built with Korean technology led by Korea Nuclear Engineering Services Corporation (KONES) and its affiliates.
The inauguration took place on Monday at the Kanoo offices in Jeddah. The project consists of 228 mono crystalline silicon PV modules of high efficiency set at 15 degrees south, and connected with three inverters to convert DC current to AC current, connected with a step-up transformer to 220 volts, which is connected direct into the building. The system will produce between 300 and 400 KWH per day.
The shaded areas under the solar modules were used as a car parking for 28 cars.
A complete whether station was built to monitor the solar energy on daily basis coupled with a state-of-the-art control system to affect the synchronization with the utility grid.
This system will contribute to reducing the power consumption of the building. It was designed in modular form so it can be doubled and trebled depending on the need.
A group of Korean companies contributed to the design and configuration of this system with the latest technology to connect a solar system with the public grid.
