TOFA’s management and engineering team have implemented a 10 MW off-grid setup for an industrial area. The project consisted of the design, procurement, installation, operation and maintenance of a 10 MW hybrid power plant and a Medium voltage distribution network to supply 24/7 power to industrial facilities in that area. The generated power comes from 4 MVA Heavy Fuel Oil generators, 4 MVA Diesel Oil generators and a 2 MWP Photovoltaic power plant. The power is distributed over a 20 KV Medium Voltage network designed in a Ring setup to ensure reliability to all clients in the area. Each client is connected to the Medium Voltage network by a dedicated substation that houses all necessary protective equipment according to international standards.
The supplied power has lead the industrial clients to reduce their overall power costs by having an alternative to their diesel generator sets which had a high running cost and which require huge capital to reinvest in new sets.
This project has also lead to a significant reduction in Green House Gases emissions within this industrial area by shutting down the inefficient and mal-maintained diesel generators and providing the needed load by a well maintained and sustainable source.
