Recently, the the Masdar company headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates in the Mauritanian capital Nouakchott to build a 15MW solar photovoltaic power plant, the project has become the largest photovoltaic power plant in the African continent.
The cost of $ 32 million Sheikh Zayed photovoltaic power plants account for about 10% of the installed capacity of the country's power grid, most of the diesel power generation. It is reported that this photovoltaic power plant consists of 29,800 pieces of non-laminated-ceramic thin film PV modules, and rely on pile of this novel stent structure as a support, rather than cement. Mauritanian President Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz (Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz) in the opening ceremony of the power station, said: "Energy is the road leading to economic and social development opportunities.
Sustainable energy, electrification is key to ensure that our people access to basic services, and a further step towards enhancing our infrastructure and long-term economic development. "We are very pleased to cooperate with Masdar, and the successful delivery of the largest photovoltaic solar inverter manufacturers power plant in Africa, this generation will meet the growing energy demand in
This photovoltaic power plant near the University of Nouakchott, the project will be returned to all utilities Mauritania Electric Power Company (Société Mauritanienne de l'électricité). The project uses a non-microcrystalline laminated photovoltaic technology, the upper layer of amorphous silicon components, the lower layer from crystalline silicon components that will enhance greatly improve the absorption rate of the spectrum. Masdar company claims that this photovoltaic power plant will help meet the country's growing energy demand,
's energy demand is
expected to grow at an annual rate of 12%. Mauritania
Masdar delivered in more than a month's second photovoltaic grid connected inverter power plants. Prior to this, on March 17, the company successfully delivered Shams 1 concentrating light thermal power stations. In addition, Masdar company off-grid photovoltaic power generation system, the project will be 600 Afghan residents supply of electricity, and the company is still in the South Pacific island nation of
to build a 500kW photovoltaic
power plants under construction. Tonga
