Hollywood legend Marlon Brando had a life dream; a sustainable, exclusive resort “The Brando” on the paradisiac atoll of Tetiaroain French Polynesia.
For the hotel the new SMA solution enables not only a solar energy ratio of 60%, but improves significantly the grid in terms of resilience and quality, harmonics, stability of frequency and voltage and a full UPS function. It blackstarts the grid within seconds.
