Blue oasis in the Tengger desert: SOFAR powers 300 MW utility-scale PV project in Gansu, China


Recently, the 300 MW utility project powered by SOFAR was commissioned. Located on the south edge of China’s fourth-largest desert, the Tengger Desert, the plant is expected to generate 540 million kWh of clean electricity annually and restore 5.2 square kilometres of grassland after being fully connected to the grid this week, saving 160,000 tons of SCE per year.


Over 1,300 sets of SOFAR 255KTL-HV have been adopted in this project. With a maximum efficiency of 99.02%, the inverter delivers optimal energy conversion and system output for users. Along with IP66 protection and C5 anti-corrosion, the inverter provides robust durability in harsh desert environments. Meanwhile, the inclusion of smart string-level disconnection (SSLD) ensures efficient and safe operation by isolating faulty strings, minimizing any potential impact on the overall system performance. In addition, the I-V scanning can accurately locate faulty strings, enabling quick and precise troubleshooting.


“The success we achieved wouldn’t be possible without the support of our partners. We’re delighted to collaborate with SOFAR on a project of significant scale. To our satisfaction, SOFAR inverters operate stably during the whole process, so we’re convinced about a stable power supply and high yields in the future operation,” says Xiaoyong He, Chief Project Engineer of POWERCHINA, the EPC of the project.


Ethan Shi, Head of SOFAR China, believes that the collaboration reflects SOFAR’s strong dedication to contributing to the shared goal of carbon neutrality. “With several ongoing projects in partnership with POWERCHINA nationwide, we’re able to leverage their expertise and resources to further expand our presence and make an impact. We welcome the opportunities ahead and look forward to achieving great success together.”
