Hitachi Energy Connects 800 MW Solar Power Project in Doha, Qatar

Oct. 20, 2022
Grid integration solution connects one of the world’s largest solar photovoltaic plants to the national power grid.

Hitachi Energy delivered its grid connection solution for Qatar’s Al Kharsaah solar photovoltaic (PV) power plant – the company’s first utility-scale solar PV park in the country, 80 kilometers west of Doha – which was inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Amir of the State of Qatar.

Al Kharsaah has a generating capacity of around 800 MW. It will avoid 26 million metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions during its operating life and help Qatar progress towards its goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 25 percent by 2030.

With its regional footprint and project design and execution knowledge, Hitachi Energy has provided an engineered package that collects all the power generated by the plant’s 1.8 million solar modules and transfers it into the national transmission system.

Hitachi Energy has more than more than 10,000 grid connections and power quality installations worldwide.
