HONG KONG, May 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Shunfeng International Clean Energy Limited ("SFCE" or the "company", HK stock code: 1165), a global provider of integrated clean energy solutions, today announced that its subsidiary meteocontrol, one of the leading global providers of monitoring solutions for private and commercial photovoltaic (PV) systems, has established a strategic alliance with Phoenix Solar AG, a leading international photovoltaic system integrator, to jointly address the burgeoning need for renewable energy in the Middle East, north Africa and Turkey (MENAT).
Under the partnership, meteocontrol will provide advanced monitoring and control systems to efficiently operate a number of PV power plants that are currently being developed by Phoenix Solar in the MENAT region.
"With meteocontrol, we have gained a skilled partner who can help us with our projects in the MENAT region," said Klaus Friedl, Director of the Middle East region at Phoenix Solar AG. "We are looking forward to jointly tapping the huge potential of this rapidly growing solar market and to further strengthening our position."
"The partnership with Phoenix Solar enhances our growth strategy in the MENAT region," says Martin Schneider, Managing Director of meteocontrol. "By integrating our advanced monitoring technology into their PV systems, we will be able to maximize the power output and minimize the operating costs of PV plants, and help to deliver cost-effective solar energy in the MENAT region."
Meteocontrol and Phoenix Solar currently plan to partner on [two projects] in the MENAT region. Meteocontrol will provide its blue'Log Station X-Series system to monitor and control a 6.9MWp power plant that Phoenix Solar is developing near Kayseri in Turkey.
Meteocontrol will also supply the remote monitoring system for the VCOM virtual control room and a local SCADA system for on-site monitoring of an 11MWp solar power plant that Phoenix Solar is developing in Jordan, which will be the largest private solar plant in the country. Designed to meet all the electricity needs of the Marriott and Sheraton hotel chains in Jordan, the power plant will consist of three individual systems and serve as a pilot project for similar power plants in Jordan and other MENAT countries. The systems are being installed in the Muwaqqar and Damikhi, Qatrana, regions and will be connected to the grids of Jordan Electric Power Co., plc., and Electric Distribution Company, plc.
