ABB surpasses 2 GW solar inverter milestone in India

 ABB has consolidated its solar inverter leadership in India with 1 GW in new business, doubling its installed base in just five months to support half of India’s 4.1 GW of total installed solar capacity.
ABB, the leading power and automation technology group, has become the first company in India to surpass an installed base of 2 GW of solar inverter capacity, doubling the 1 GW installed base it had in March 2015 which was also a country first. The additional 1 GW came from multiple orders from leading solar power developers and from selling components to solar engineering, procurement and construction firms.ABB’s solar business in India is supported by its state-of-the-art Bengaluru factory, which opened near the end of 2012 and has continued expanding to meet growing demand. “India is one of the world’s fastest growing solar markets, and ABB has steadily built this business up over the years. This has provided invaluable insights into the local needs and allows us to continue innovating in-country-for-country solutions,” said Pekka Tiitinen, President of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division. “Our next level strategy is built around expansion opportunities into promising growth markets and today we can deliver up to 3 GW of inverter capacity from Bangalore each year, supported by local engineering and service expertise.”
The Bangalore site manufacturers ABB’s PVS800 central inverter series rated from 100 to 1 MW, which are designed for multi-megawatt PV power plants as well as large PV installations on commercial and industrial buildings. The PVS800 converters have proven popular in India due to their ease of commissioning and reliable performance in even the harshest of climates.
