ECOsys, an ITG company, and a provider of world-class renewable energy and power solutions, supplied and installed a Photovoltaic Hybrid Power Plant at Gemayel Frères, Bikfaya Lebanon.
The total capacity of the solar power plant at Gemayel Frères is 300 KWp consisting of 966 PV panels roof-integrated and spread over 4 sheds. It is a hybrid photovoltaic system that operates in parallel with either the grid or Diesel generators.
The main challenge in this project is the energy management when operating in parallel with Diesel generators as the PV penetration represents around 60% of the total factory load. The energy management was achieved by the use of a fuel save controller especially designed and dedicated for this purpose.
The solar system generates around 430 MWh per year which helps in reducing the electricity bill as well as the use of Diesel generators.
In addition, the produced energy by the plant is a green energy that does not emit greenhouse gases and reduces CO2 emissions by around 300 tons yearly.
“Working with ECOsys on the project of installing a PV hybrid system of 300kwp was more a partnership than a business relationship. Their professional and dedicated team contributed to the success of this project”, said Rima Hayek, Quality Management & Social Responsibility Manager of Gemayel Frères.
The project was co-funded by the European Union (UNDP-CEDRO project) and Gemayel Frères. It was also financed by the "National Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Action" (NEEREA), a national financing mechanism initiated by the Central Bank of Lebanon, dedicated to the financing of green energy projects in Lebanon.
The project is fully operational since March 6, 2017.
