KUADROTEK - Cooling the cabinets of the inverter stations for the 35 MW Ashalim photovoltaic plant in Israel.
The plant includes the world‘s tallest solar tower.
The Ashalim power station is located in the Negev desert near the kibbutz of Ashalim, in Israel. The station will provide 250 Megawatt of hybrid PV-solarthermal electricity (2.5 % of the Israeli consumption), which makes it the largest of its kind in Israel and one of the largest in the world.
The station will combine 3 kinds of energy: solar thermal energy, photovoltaic energy, and natural gas. The PV plant has been connected to the grid in January 2018.
Pfannenberg's cooling units have been mounted in Kuadrotek's cabinets for inverter stations.
Kuadrotek SA, from Tarragona, is part of the Spanish Elektra Group. It specialises in the design, development and implementation of electric switchboards and control panels for the automation of installations and industrial processes in the automotive and energy industries.
Kuadrotek has delivered the electrical cabinets for the inverter stations of the 35 MW photovoltaic plant. Pfannenberg's cooling units will ensure the perfect thermal management and operational safety for their components.
„Our relationship with Kuadrotek is strengthened thanks to the reliability of the products already used in other large photovoltaic plants in the world. This is also why Kuadrotek continues to choose our products over our competitors", stated Xavier Pedescoll, Sales Area Manager at Pfannenberg.
