Hybrid Solar Plant Built by Astrasun Commissioned in Romania

Green Energy

In line with its regional expansion strategy, Astrasun Solar has completed the construction of a hybrid solar power plant with a capacity of almost 130 kWp in Timisoara, Romania, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.

The solar power plant, developed by the company, which has been listed on the Budapest Stock Exchange since December, will, once commissioned, provide 100% clean, renewable energy for the AC/DC chargers of electric cars. The implementation of the project is also of particular importance for Astrasun Solar as the company has implemented a cross-border development that combines several different technologies for electricity generation, such as energy storage and balancing, electric car charging, and grid generation, in a single technical unit.

The company started the construction of the solar PV system with a capacity of nearly 130 kWp at the beginning of the year on a nearly 2,500 sqm site in Timisoara, Romania, which was in poor condition, full of debris. In order to carry out the project in a sustainable and environmentally conscious manner, the company used a technique that allows the barren land to be reclaimed by green vegetation, as opposed to the traditional solar PV system.

The 122 kWp hybrid solar power plant, powered by a 20 kV transformer unit, was connected to an energy storage unit after commissioning to provide green power for AC/DC chargers for charging electric cars and to compensate for minor fluctuations in the grid and production.

The support structure for the solar power plant was manufactured by Ikarus Tech. The company, which is the result of a three-way partnership with Műszertechnika-Holding and IK Metál as part of the latter group, aims to become one of Europe's leading manufacturers of metal solar structures. 

"With the implementation of the Timisoara solar power plant project, we have achieved a technological development in Romania that can serve as a model for the connection of new renewable energy capacity and electric charging stations to the system, even in the absence of grid development. It is also significant because the newly commissioned hybrid solar power plant will use several different technologies for electricity generation, including energy storage and balancing, electric car charging, and grid generation. It will also use 100% clean renewable energy to charge the car charging stations connected to it. This type of green energy storage and charging system is a unique service not only in Hungary but also beyond the borders," said Attila Keresztes, president and CEO of Astrasun Solar.
