Operating and maintaining solar PV plants in MENA major focus of webinar

PV Insider has announced a complimentary webinar on ‘Optimal O & M strategies for PV plants in MENA." The 50 minute webinar will take place on Tuesday 4th March at 2pm AST / 3pm GST / 12pm CET time.

With large-scale PV plants now up and running in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, the industry should look to the companies involved in these plants to share valuable experience in the budgeting and implementation of Operations and Maintenance. With dust and humidity major climatic factors in the much of the region, the MENA region presents bigger challenges for cost- effective maintenance. With less experience in the region, the training and contracting of plant operations and maintenance companies is crucial to achieving high yield at the best cost possible.


During the webinar, Frank Teofilo, Regional Director of O & M for First Solar and Ignacio Martinez, Business Development manager at DNV GL will share the key variables for operating and maintaining plants cost-effectively including cleaning and maintenance schedules. Webinar host Letty Thomas said "Webinar listeners will get the chance to ask questions of these O & M experts to ensure they plan effectively and get information and experience from plants already operating in the region.

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
