February 14 (Renewables Now) – Jordanian project developer KAWAR Energy has been chosen to build a 7-MW solar park for the Al-Balqa' Applied University, Jordan, while KACO new energy will supply 140 inverters for the project, the German equipment maker said Wednesday.
KAWAR Energy and the Al-Balqa’ Applied University signed a build-operate-transfer (BOT) contract on January 14, 2019.
The German photovoltaic (PV) equipment maker will supply its string inverter blueplanet 50.0 TL3. The XL version of the product includes 10 DC inputs, string fuses and overvoltage protection.
