ECOsys, an ITG company, and a provider of world-class renewable energy and power solutions, in partnership with Quattro Construction, a reputable contractor in Kabul, implemented a 2 MW hybrid solar and wind power plant in Herat Province, Afghanistan.

 

The project for the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS) and the national electric utility company in Afghanistan, Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat (DABS), started in September 2017, and is a ground-mount system with 10 degrees tilt angle oriented south.

ECOsys handled the supply, delivery, supervision of the installation, testing, and commissioning of the solar & wind system which will produce 1.7 MWp of solar power (PV panels) and 300 kWp of wind power (wind turbines).

 

Solar and wind projects play a significant role in Afghanistan, as the ministry of energy and water is continuously making efforts to establish renewable energy projects around the country and benefit from each of them. The above mentioned project is expected to generate 3.0 GWh/year which should suffice to provide power for approximately 1,500 households and about 100 small businesses in Herat, with a total saving of 2,100 tons of CO2.

The power plant is connected to the existing 20 kVA distribution network lines.

 

ECOsys’ partners for this project

  • Quattro Construction (local contractor)
  • REC (PV panels supplier)
  • Kaco New Energy (inverters supplier)
  • Schletter (mounting structure supplier)
  • Meteocontrol (SCADA system supplier)
  • ESPE (wind turbines supplier)
