About Solar for Samoa

MPower was awarded a contract to deliver a fully operational 5.0MW solar power station across two sites in Samoa.

 

The first site at Faleolo International airport has a 3MWp solar PV ground mount system. The second site at Faleata Race Track has a 2MWp solar PV group mount system.

 

The panel configuration is rated for high wind conditions and the inverters used are string inverters to allow for ease of operations and maintenance by local staff given the remote location.


 The project was managed by MPower's construction manager, project manager and HSE managers and carried out by local staff (peaking at 220) in Samoa with regular visits from MPower’s team in Sydney. 


The Solar for Samoa project set the benchmark for quality solar power projects in the South Pacific.


The two sites will provide up to 27% of the network power during peak output.
