Sungrow, the world’s leading PV inverter manufacturer, announces that it supplied central inverters totaling 18MW in Japan, last December. Sungrow’s containerized SG2000 central inverter has been supplied to the two plants in the area served by Kansai Electric Power (10MW) and Chubu Electric Power (8MW) respectively, and have been approved to be connected to local grids. Thanks to its compact design, the SG2000 is easy to deploy and install and only occupies 8 square meters.
The Japanese PV inverter market is traditionally dominated by domestic PV inverter manufacturers, partly because of stringent requirements and very high standards, which have only been met by a select group of overseas manufacturers. The central power plant takes a large proportion of space in spite of the scarcity of land available for solar plant in Japan. Sungrow has proved its ability to meet high standards with the success of this 18MW project, in the high end Japanese market. Based on the contracts signed for these projects, Sungrow’s central inverter solutions– and the cost savings they promise— have proved to be a rare, yet ideal choice for EPCs in Japan in this case, especially at a time when subsidies are being phased out by the Japanese policymakers.
Having entered into the Japanese market in 2014, Sungrow Japan now has a team of professionals capable of offering sales/after-sales services and technology supports at national scale. “We are committed to continued technical innovation of solar inverters for our Japanese partners, and hope to continue being a technology leader for the solar industry.” said Professor Renxian Cao, President of Sungrow.
