Ingeteam has supplied 108 solar inverters and 32 substations for two Brazilian solar PV projects by Mercury Renew, a Grupo Comerc Energia company.
The first of the two projects is the Brígida solar plant with 80 MWp. The facility was commissioned in April last year and was inaugurated in July 2021 by the Minister for Mines and Energy and the Minister for Tourism.
The second system, the Bon Norme 130 MWp solar system, has now been put into operation. Both plants are part of the same solar complex in the state of Pernambuco.
