Chinese inverter manufacturer Sungrow recently inaugurated its expanded manufacturing capacity in India. The company, which began manufacturing solar inverters in India in 2018, has scaled the India facility to 10GW/year capacity to extend its customers’ reach locally and globally with shorter lead times and a better service experience.
Bhagwanth Khuba, India’s Minister of State for New and Renewable Energy, practically inaugurated the manufacturing unit.
Sungrow, which had installed over 224GW worldwide as of December 2021, has shipped more than 11GW of inverters to India since entering the Indian solar market in 2014. With its 10GW manufacturing unit, Sungrow can serve various customer segments including residential, industrial and utility level, both locally and globally.
“I appreciate this move by Sungrow as well as his long-term development plan that can help achieve our ambitious renewable energy mission,” Khuba said. “I hope that Sungrow can continue to lead in this market and set the benchmark for the Indian solar industry for the success of the Make in India initiative.”
At the opening ceremony, Sungrow presented its new products in the string and central inverter categories, including the SG350HX model and the 1+X modular inverter.
The SG350HX multi-MPPT string inverter for 1500 VDC systems has a maximum output power of 352 kW and supports large-size, high-efficiency and bifacial PV modules.
The modular 1+X central inverter solution for large solar power plants is characterized by modularization at inverter level, system level and component level. The three-stage modularization will make the power plant design more flexible and post-O&M more convenient in the future.
Sunil Badesra, Country Head of Sungrow India said, “Sungrow is very proud to be the only company that manufactures all types of PV and ESS systems domestically for the Indian market and it also creates tremendous opportunities for investment and employment. Going forward, we will work even harder to further strengthen the supply chain and ensure stable and efficient delivery for our customers.”
