GE Power is to supply inverters and skids for the 14MW Vale Verde 3 solar farm under development in Brazil by Construtora Quebec for Vientos Solutions.

Engineering, procurement and construction contractor Construtora Quebec has hired GE to deliver 4.4MW and 2.2MW LV5 1500V kit.

GE will also provide a full service package to Construtora Quebec.

The equipment is accredited by the Bank of Economic and Social Development and so meets local content requirements for renewable energy projects in Brazil. 

Construtora Quebec chief executive Scott Wells said: “In the Vale Verde 3 project, GE’s highly efficient solar solution ensures us a solar project that will have reduced capex and opex, allowing us to create real value for the plant’s long-term performance.” 

GE power conversion business solar chief executive Patrick Fetzer said: “I am excited about the close relationship we nourish with customers like Quebec and the Brazilian renewable market. 

“We have, up through today, provided more than 1GW of inverters to uphold our commitment to bringing down the levelised cost of electricity in Brazil, providing clean and efficient power to the local community.”
