Nidec Industrial Solutions and Corsica Sole, project developer and independent power producer have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the turn-key construction and maintenance of four photovoltaic projects with battery storage which are part of the 13MWp pipeline project won by Corsica Sole awarded under the French CRE ZNI tender.

NIS and Corsica Sole recently finalized and signed an EPC contract, related to one of these projects, with a capacity of 4.78MWp (PV) and 7.5MWh (BESS), located near Bastia, one of the biggest electricity consumer areas in Corsica.

“This project, and those to come next, demonstrate that it is already technologically possible, economically feasible and socially beneficial today to achieve 100% renewable energy mix,” says Michael Coudyser, chief executive of Corsica Sole.

The NIS scope of work includes an EPC and two years of maintenance including supplying NIS manufacturing product, namely 1.5 kV inverter, ARTICS Smart Energy, Nidec’s Power Management System for smart microgrids and energy storage, in addition to design, construction, installation and commissioning. The plant should be fully operational by April 2018.

The construction of the other three projects, will start in 2018.
