Sungrow To Provide PV Inverters fo 205MW Solar Project in California
September 9, 2017
China-based Sungrow, a major international supplier of PV inverter solutions, has been selected to provide 205 MW of central inverters for a utility-scale solar project in California's Central Valley.
The Central Valley is home to many of California's solar farms because of its abundant land space and frequent sunshine. It experiences high temperatures in the summer months, putting significant wear-and-tear on solar hardware. The power plant is expected to be completed in late 2017 using Sungrow's newest 1500V turnkey central inverter solution, the SG2500U.
The product is designed for easy integration--with a containerized pre-integrated option also available--and simplified installation making it the ideal plug and play solution for utility-scale systems. For O&M, all serviceable components can be accessed externally, meaning lower repair times and service costs. In addition, the product is one of the first 1500V inverters be listed with the stringent UL 1741-SA certification required for most North American projects.
"Sungrow is always committed to technical innovation which drives our rapid growth. We will continue to offer better products and solutions to customers globally", said Professor Renxian Cao.
The project signifies Sungrow's rapid growth into North America, being the company's largest project win in the continent since it entered the market in 2011. Earlier this year, the company announced it shipped an unprecedented 10.9 GW in the first half of 2017, moving up from its already impressive 11.1GW number for 2016.
Sungrow is a major international inverter solution supplier for renewables with over 49GW installed worldwide as of June 2017. Founded in 1997 by University Professor Renxian Cao, Sungrow is a global leader in research and development in solar inverters, with numerous patents and a broad product portfolio offering PV inverter systems as well as energy storage systems for utility-scale, commercial, and residential applications. With a 20-year track record of growth and success, Sungrow's products are available in over 50 countries, maintaining a market share of around 25% in Germany and over 15% globally.
