China-based solar power storage company Sungrow has announced it has agreed a deal to supply 2.2GWac (gigawatt alternating current) of inverter skid solutions to a solar photovoltaic (PV) plant in Saudi Arabia.

The development is set to be the largest single-site utility scale plant in the Middle East. Sungrow signed the contract with Indian infrastructure company Larsen & Toubro, which is involved in the construction and procurement of components for Saudi energy-focused special economic zone Neom’s green hydrogen project.

The agreement sees Sungrow providing PV inverters and solar skids to the project, which will allow for the remote control of electrical currents and conversion from DC to AC currents for grid connection.

This is the latest involvement Sungrow has had with the Neom project, which reached 60% completion in May according to Neom’s CEO. Sungrow previously agreed with Larsen & Toubro to provide 600 megawatt-hours of energy storage systems for the project.

James Wu, Sungrow senior vice-president, stated: “We are thrilled to partner with Larsen & Toubro to bring our products to the landmark NEOM Green Hydrogen project. We signed the agreement to supply the Battery Energy Storage Solution a few months ago. Now we have agreed to supply our PV inverter solutions to the project.”

The Neom solar PV plant will supply energy to the Neom Green Hydrogen project. Upon completion in 2026, the project will be the world’s largest green hydrogen production facility, producing 600 tonnes of hydrogen per day in the form of liquid ammonia.

Neom has already agreed a 30-year exclusive offtake agreement with US industrial gas supplier Air Products for the entirety of the hydrogen produced at the facility. Air Products is a 33.3% joint venture partner in the project, with Acwa Power and Neom also holding equal stakes.
