MUNICH, Germany, Feb. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the largest Asian producer of PV inverters, Sungrow Power Supply Co,. Ltd recently announced that a 5MW-peak power large scale PV plant using Sungrow PV inverters has been successfully connected to the Italian medium voltage grid in winter 2012.
The plant is located in Maniago with 5MW installation capacity in total, and was developed, engineered and constructed by IBC SOLAR AG, a leading global specialist in photovoltaic systems. The solar park produces about 6 million kilowatt hours of environmentally friendly solar power per year, enough to supply 1,500 Italian households and save approx. 3,300 tons of harmful CO2 emissions.
It's reported that Sungrow supplied all the 321pcs of three-phase string inverters to this installation for the high-efficiency conversion of generated DC-power into AC-power to be fed into the electricity grid. Compared to central inverters, string inverters are light-weighted but still with high efficiency, making this distributed-inverter concept flexible and easy to handle without lift machinery assistance, and also help EPCs, investors and developers to reduce the cost of installation and maintenance.
"Sungrow always provides customers with high-quality products and services, and paid attention to clients' present and prospective demands when we developed a new product or upgraded a type of technology, and our long-last focus on the renewable energy industry brought us more and more honest partners all around the world, indeed, since success is to be shared.," Mr. Raymond Wong, V.P. of Sungrow, said. Since September 2012, Sungrow has been an official partner of IBC SOLAR AG which is distributing Sungrow's inverters into various European markets and also using them for some of their own PV plants. "By including Sungrow inverters into our product portfolio, we are expanding our broad range of high-quality products offering an ideal price-performance ratio," said Norbert Hahn, IBC SOLAR board member.
Sungrow Power Supply Co., Ltd., founded in 1997, is a high-tech enterprise engaged in development of power supply equipment for renewable energy, especially PV inverters, other equipments and technology used in PV plant.
According to a report of IMS research, Sungrow ranked the 5th largest PV inverter manufacturer in the world in 2011 by shippment. With over 2500MW installation capacity globally, of which 450MW is installed in Europe, Australia and North America, Sungrow is the largest PV inverter manufacturer of Asia.
