What we do
We have the experience and capacity to support solar projects from inception, throughout the development and construction stages and for the complete lifetime of the plant.
PLC aim to add value through a collaborative approach with local and international developers and investors.
Engineering, Procurement & Construction
PLC is a contractor providing complete turnkey solar power solutions for utility scale PV projects.
We oﬀer both full EPC scope including panel supply, as well as EPC for balance of system (BoS) according to client needs.
Operation & Maintenance
We are experts in O&M for solar power plants, oﬀering a full range of plant monitoring, preventive and corrective maintenance services backed up by appropriate contractual guarantees depending on customer requirements.
Utility Scale Solar Power Plant
PLC has extensive experience in utility scale solar; including both ground-mounted systems and large roof-top installations. Our ground-mounted experience extends across all kinds of terrain, including complex sites with high degree of inclination and demanding ground conditions. With our in-house engineering capacity, we provide optimized solar plant designs for each project – taking account of speciﬁc site and local ambient conditions.
PLC solar power plants utilize well proven equipment from tier-1 suppliers. We have extensive experience in application of both string and centralized inverters, while we oﬀer both ﬁxed installations and single-axis tracker systems depending on project requirements. All installations are carried out under the supervision of PLC experienced project engineers.
We provide large-scale battery based energy storage solutions, both integrated with solar PV plant and stand-alone. Apart from the ability to store and deliver energy on demand, the responsiveness of battery systems makes them ideal to provide network operators with innovative solutions for frequency response which help to stabilize electricity grids. Energy storage systems are generally supplied in modular designs, which are easily scalable and are able to deliver multi-MW output. In order to successfully apply battery technology in utility scale applications we apply sophisticated control concepts with automated battery management systems
On Grid/ Grid-tied PV System
The Solar Grid Tie (also known as Grid Interactive) systems are intended to operate in parallel with an electric utility. At night or during inclement weather all the electricity is supplied by the utilities. During the daylight hours, the systems generate some power, oﬀ-setting the consumption of electricity from the utility and cutting electric bills. The balance of the power required by your load is automatically drawn from the utility lines. If the PV panels are producing more electricity than you are using the system will feed the surplus of power back to the utility. It may spin your electric meters backward, further reducing monthly bill. PLC provide complete on grid solutions from design till end commissioning of project.
Off Grid PV System
There are many reasons for choosing an oﬀ-grid PV system to power a remote home or cabin. Some people want to avoid the high cost of extending a utility line, while others like the independence of homemade energy production, as well as having a silent, emissionfree energy source with a 25-year warranty.
This system is completely independent form the public electricity grid and designed exactly to meet the client’s needs of electricity day and night by using solar energy only and consists of the PV module connected to the charge controller, “which can be located inside the inverter or as a separate unit” charging batteries for the use of energy in the absence of the sun as well as the Inverter connected to the load to meet the needs of energy.
PLC provide complete oﬀ grid solutions from design till end commissioning of project.
Hybrid PV System
Hybrid power generation systems combine solar power generation with conventional forms of power generation and energy storage technologies, to enable a reliable supply of high quality electricity, either to the network or to oﬀ-grid consumers. These solutions enable the user to signiﬁcantly reduce the cost of expensive fuel, such as diesel, while ensuring that the power plant output is fully controllable to match the required demand proﬁle. Also we design, supply and install of compact solar systems (hybrid & oﬀ grid ) inside container /shelter. PLC is well placed to provide hybrid power generation solutions to match project needs.
Communication Tower PV System.
Telecom towers may operate in regions with an unreliable grid or no grid supply while the others operate in regions with a stable grid supply but face high electricity costs. PLC oﬀers proven solutions to cover both needs. In areas with an unreliable grid or no grid supply, telecom towers infrastructure companies in these regions have long relied on diesel generators as a source of power which increases the working cost.
Off Grid Telecom solution includes:
– High amps charging capacity with PFC (Power Factor Correction).
– Two AC-source inputs with built-in transfer switch allowing direct wiring to two AC sources (i.e. grid and diesel generator or two diesel generators)
– Pure-sine AC output with high surge capacity to start heavy loads of air-conditioners
– Modular and stackable design to support wide system sizes: both 1-phase and 3-phase.
– Easy and seamless integration with solar to reduce diesel costs.
Street Lighting Pole PV system.
Solar street lights are raised outdoor light sources, which are powered by PV (photovoltaic) panels. These panels are mounted on the lighting structure or connected in the pole. PV panels have a rechargeable battery, providing power to the ﬂuorescent or LED lamp during the entire night. Most of the solar panels automatically sense outdoor light through a light source. These can give oﬀ light on successive nights even when the sun’s energy is not available for a couple of days. Many users are switching to solar street lights nowadays due to a number of reasons.
– Independent of the utility grid.
– No regular maintenance.
– Standalone system.
– Easily carried to remote areas.
– Saving the cost of transformer, cabling & installation..
Supply & installation of Wind turbine
Power Lines Contracting, designs, supplies and installing wind turbines on the small and medium scale with cooperates with one of Korea’s largest wind turbines manufacturer, the Golden Universal plant, which provides turbines with a capacity of up to 25 kV and 20 years warranty.
Operation & Maintenance
Operate the Facility in accordance with applicable regulations (particularly on safety and occupational health and environment)
• Verify, record and report information to the Owner on the generation of electricity, loss in generation due to grid disturbance, and consumption of electricity within the Facility.
• Monitor and supervise the operation of the facility and communicate in the form of monthly reports in writing to the Owner. This monthly report will contain information regarding the evacuation of electricity to the grid; tasks performed preventive and corrective maintenance, as well as electricity consumption of the Facility.
• Carry out all tasks of inspection, testing, cleaning, and preventive maintenance and / or corrective repair, replacement if necessary under the Good Manufacturing Practices.
To make sure the solar system works perfectly, we following the below procedure:
1. Proceed with Operation and maintenance periodically.
2. Periodic test for solar system component.
3. Periodic maintenance to maintain the continuity of the system.
4. Commitment to equipment safety.
5. Power generation process Reporting.
6. Ensure the eﬃciency of power generation and ﬁnancial performance of the facility.
