The design, implementation and operation of mega projects like the 1.65 GWp Benban solar park in Egypt has its own challenges. What are the solutions to problems such as extreme weather conditions or voltage drops at the end of the line, and how can stable management be ensured for the years to come?
Designing and implementing a mega project
During this webinar, Voltalia will give you advice and a feedback on their Ra Solar plant, which is part of the Benban Solar Complex. They will explain how they interacted with the Egyptian Transmission System Operator and the other developers. They will give you their return on experience regarding the main challenges they faced in terms of electrical design and EPC.
Successful grid integration enabled with production forecasts from Reuniwatt
A typical solar megapark covers an area of several km2. The implications and specifications for production forecasts of a project of this size require a close exchange with the power producer and the provision of secure and reliable services at the highest possible accuracy. Reuniwatt will shed light on the types of forecasts available for such projects and on the different steps necessary to set up the most efficient forecasting solution for a reliable integration of solar into the electric grid.
Mega Solar Projects and Grid Integration Challenges – Benban’s return on experience
After a successful first session in French, Reuniwatt and Voltalia are happy to share their experience and lessons learned about this unique project in a joint webinar moderated by INACCESS – in English this time – entitled Mega Solar Projects and Grid Integration Challenges – Benban’s return on experience.
As partners in the project, Voltalia and Reuniwatt are eager to share their approach to safely operate one of the largest solar power plants on the planet. The webinar is as a part of Reuniwatt’s webinar series and took place on 15 October, 2020 at 3pm CEST. Watch the Webinar on Demand:
