In its collaboration agreement with the company GPTech, Irradia Energía has been with its technical team in the city of Upington, a city of 70,000 inhabitants in northern South Africa, conducting the official approval of technicians in GPTech WD3 inverters.
During this course, the Irradia team was responsible for providing all the information required for handling these inverters to a dozen technicians from the company SCATEC. This course enables technicians to receive the official homologation to be able to work on the equipment.This certification is evaluated, by means of an examination on the last day of the course, by our technical team from Irradia Energia, which has travelled to South Africa and has a level 3 certification (maximum certification allowed).
The South African installations that were taught in this course are 3 photovoltaic parks of 75MW nominal each, with a total of 60 photovoltaic inverters. Apart from technicians from South Africa, SCATEC sent technicians from other plants in Africa for this course, so technicians from Egypt (where SCATEC has 3 plants of 150MW nominal) and Mozambique (where SCATEC has a plant of 25MW nominal) were present.
The partnership between GPTech and Irradia started more than 10 years ago.What began as a small rapprochement between these two companies, is now an agreement where, among other lines of business, we find: 24/7 Service of its technical assistance department (CCSS), maintenance GPTech inverter corrective maintenance throughout Europe (official technical service), and is added this year further agreements collaboration agreements, such as the one for the installation of self-consumption and the one that gives rise to this news item.
