Sungrow to supply 205MW of central inverters to Californian solar project

CTBR Staff Writer Published 05 September 2017

China-based PV inverter manufacturer Sungrow has bagged a contract to deliver 205MW of central inverters for a solar project in California.

The Chinese firm did not disclose the name of the solar project and its owner. However, it revealed that the inverters will be supplied to a utility-scale solar plant coming up in the Central Valley.

Sungrow says that the project marks its fast growth into North America besides being its largest project win in the continent ever since its foray into the region six years ago.

Expected to be ready by the year end, the solar project will feature SG2500U, the latest 1500V turnkey central inverter solution from Sungrow.

G2500U as per its manufacturer has been designed for hassle-free installation and it comes with a containerized pre-integrated option. Sungrow claims that the inverter, owing to its simplified installation, makes it the perfect plug and play solution for utility-scale systems.

Sungrow founder Professor Renxian Cao said: “Sungrow is always committed to technical innovation which drives our rapid growth. We will continue to offer better products and solutions to customers globally.”

According to the Chinese company, all serviceable components of the SG2500U inverter can be accessed externally when it comes to operations and maintenance.

Apart from that, Sungrow says that the SG2500U is among the 1500V inverters to be in compliance with stringent UL 1741-SA certification that is mandatory for a majority of North American projects.
