SMA says it will supply its Medium-Voltage Power Platforms (MV Power Platforms) for the 110 MW Catalina solar project, which is under construction in Kern County, Calif.

The project, developed by EDF Renewable Energy, is scheduled to have its first phase commissioned next month.

The MV Power Platform is SMA's modular utility-scale power conversion solution using Sunny Central technology. The platform consists of two Sunny Central inverters, a transformer, optional DC/AC disconnect cabinets and a control and supply panel for power distribution to local loads and, optionally, field tracker motors, the company says.

More details on the Catalina project are available here.
