Now Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd is an expert in the construction of various industrial solar power plants both stationary and tracking systems. However, 17 years ago Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd, was itself a customer and ordered the first private solar power plant. In 2003 the construction of solar power in Europe was a new thing and a large investment. Even the 3Mw power plant was a very expensive and risky investment project. At the time this process has only started and it was difficult to find a qualified designer and contractor to execute such construction. The cost of solar panels and inverters at that time has been much higher than it is now. However, the correct choice of the responsible designer and contractor from the Czech Republic allowed Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd without unnecessary costs and complications to build its first solar power station, which still in 2020 produces electric power and sells it to the network.
Because of the right choice of a responsible and honest designer for the construction of the first power plant Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd used galvanized steel driven piles for structures on which solar panels were mounted. Only the upper part of the mounts was assembled from expensive aluminum slats. That allowed to significally reduce the cost of such metal frames for solar panels.
The correct choice of high-quality Chinese manufacturer of the solar panels has shown in practice within past 17 years of the exploitation the excellent result: the minor degradation/aging of the panels in course of operational life, lower than the scheduled project. There have been just isolated instances of failure of just a couple of panels after the 10-years warranty on the panels. The cost of these panels produced by the leading Chinese manufacturer was lower than with the direct ordering from the manufacturer because of placing order with the right dealer. Saving on the cost of solar photoelectric modules has reduced the payback period of the power plant and the repayment period of the investment.
Thanks to the right choice of the linear inverters and refusal from using large central inverters after many years of operation, it is possible to make a conclusion that it was the most correct decision those days, and nowadays only such solutions are available on the market. This choice has proven its reliability and competitive price. The main issue remained is the protection and cleaning of cooling fans of the inverters. Now the leading Chinese manufacturers of high-quality inverters offer the inverters without fan and with radiator type of cooling that is much more reliable.
The right choice of the placement of a power plant on flat terrain with a level higher than the neighboring parcels has allowed over the years to avoid flooding in the spontaneous downpours and electronic equipment was not damaged by water.
Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd has made the proper choice of the dry-oil transformers instead of the oil-filled transformers that has proven their reliable operation and failure-free performance uptime throughout all these years, though their price was a little higher.
Even after 17 years Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd would offer such constructive solutions in the construction of new solar power plants of 5-15MW capacity. Of course nowadays it is more efficient to use tracking systems to the two-axis positioning of solar panels which allows panels to move with the movement of the sun across the horizon and to achieve larger electricity production and more rapid return on the investment.
Thanks to its own solar power plants and experience in the design and construction of solar power plants for the clients, due to the established relations with contractors and suppliers from China, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Poland, Germany, Turkey, Mexico, Thailand, Singapore, Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd is now ready to offer its customers balanced and excellent design solutions for durable and reliable operation of a solar power plant. Also, the price of construction of a modern solar power plant will be adequate and even below the average estimated cost. All of these is possible due to the own experience of Bel Trading & Consulting Ltd and refusal of some unnecessary expensive solutions and the use of effective and proven concepts.
