Short Story

Rosia Outer Rim is a 1MW photovoltaic project set to be installed near the city of Sibiu. Positioned on a private land parcel spanning 20,000m2, the project will link up with the 20kV medium voltage line, approximately 9km away from Electrica Sibiu Sud power station.

The project footprint is estimated to cover around 12,000m2. Notably, the project has been conceived to allow for the potential addition of a storage facility in the future.

Additionally, the infrastructure will feature a 1250kVA power transformer, meticulously designed to facilitate the grid connection via the 20kV medium voltage line.

The photovoltaic panels will rest on a metal structure anchored into the ground through percussion, eliminating the need for cement or other materials that could impact soil quality.

The transformer station will be housed within a 20-foot container, necessitating a 20m2 foundation for support.

A protective perimeter for the photovoltaic park will consist of a 2-meter tall fence, fortified with three rows of barbed wire to deter potential intrusion. As an added security measure, lighting poles will be positioned every 10 meters, each equipped with high-performance video cameras featuring night vision capabilities.
