Utility-scale solar power plant is central to Qatar’s carbon-neutral power system 

February 02, 2021:   Hitachi ABB Power Grids announced today it has been awarded a major order that will help Qatar’s national grid increase the integration of renewable energy from the country’s first large-scale solar power generation project – the 800MW Al Kharsaah photovoltaic (PV) power plant.

As part of the agreement with PowerChina Guizhou Engineering and leveraging its integration capabilities and grid code requirement know-how, Hitachi ABB Power Grids will provide a fully engineered 220kV grid connection solution that includes detailed engineering and equipment, in line with local requirements and standards. This is a fundamental pillar in supporting the customer to successfully develop the region’s largest solar power infrastructure project for clean energy generation.

Scheduled for partial commissioning in Q2 2021, Al Kharsaah is key to achieving a carbon neutral power system, by integrating renewables as outlined in the Qatar National Vision, whereas the country - by 2030 - aims to advance and sustain its development and provide a high standard of living for all of its people. 

“Our pioneering technologies and global experience will help Qatar to diversify its power generation resources by safely and securely integrating utility-scale solar power generation into its grid,” said Mostafa AlGuezeri, managing director of Hitachi ABB Power Grids in the UAE, Gulf, Near East and Pakistan. 

Al Kharsaah will drive big changes in the region’s electricity sector diversifying Qatar’s energy mix and reducing emissions. Hitachi ABB Power Grids will help Qatar maximizing renewable energy penetration and increasing the operational and maintenance efficiency of this ground-breaking project.

Hitachi ABB Power Grids provides fully integrated grid connection solutions to efficiently integrate energy from renewable power plants of all types into transmission grids and distribution networks. Supported by deep knowledge of renewable power generation technology and long experience with grid standards and utility practices around the world, Hitachi ABB Power Grids develops and pioneers solutions based on proven, state-of-the-art technologies that help our customers build the foundations of a renewable energy future.
