Eiffage Énergie Systèmes handles wiring and connection for Savoie’s first solar photovoltaic plant

French green energy specialist Quadran was absorbed into the Gas, Renewables and Power branch of Total Group in 2019. Now known as Total Quadran, the company has chosen Eiffage Énergie Systèmes to carry out wiring and connection work on Méry solar photovoltaic plant (73). The works are to take place this summer.

Once the plant's photovoltaic structures have been assembled, our teams will be able to link up the electrical circuit between the photovoltaic modules, inverters and delivery station enabling the electricity generated to feed the power grid. They will also take charge of putting into use the plant's various buried networks (electrical and fibre optic lines). The trenches needed to route these networks and the substation platforms will be built by our EES Alpes Isère branch, which is to carry out all the earthworks. Apart from the connection works, our team will be in charge of installing weather sensors, as well as the site's CCTV cameras.

'This is the first time we have worked for Total Quadran, and we hope to establish a partnership. Méry solar photovoltaic plant wiring and connection project could act as a business card and help us to obtain new contracts of this kind with them' said Eiffage Énergie Systèmes Infra Rhône Alpes Studies and Projects Manager, Pierre-Louis Charroin.

Méry solar photovoltaic plant will be supplied with a total of 11,340 SunPower modules. These sensors will be linked to the 36 Huawei inverters, which will themselves be connected up to two transformer substations. Once the works have been completed, the plant will be able to reach a capacity of MWc. The electrical power thus generated will meet the energy needs of around 1,500 homes.
