ECOsys, an ITG company, has installed a Photovoltaic (PV) system with a 1 MWp capacity at Chehab Industrial and Medical Gases. The system is distributed over 7 rooftops at their factory in Debbieh, with a total area of 7200 m2, and will be operating in parallel with their diesel generators.

 

Primarily, Chehab Gas wanted to reduce their diesel consumption, and with the PV system provided by ECOsys, the solar system will be generating 1400 MWh per year, with a total capacity of 1000.56 kWp which will be saving up to 980 tons of CO2 per year.

 

The main challenge for ECOsys in this project was to control the output power, as the system consists of polycrystalline PV panels that are connected to 19 inverters which are decentralized in 5 different areas. For this reason, a centralized fuel save controller was installed in the main electrical room, which communicates with all inverters through fiber optics cables carried by electrical poles distributed on site to ensure a proper and safe operation of the PV system with diesel generators.

 

Mr. Fady Kahwaji, Technical Manager at Chehab Industrial and Medical Gases said ‘ECOsys’ team has proven to be highly professional, they are flexible, and respond to all of our commercial and technical inquiries. The technical team encountered many challenges as the system was not easy to install, but it is now running seamlessly.’
