Siemens to manufacture new generation of photovoltaic inverters in India
Siemens India has launched the Sinacon PV, a new generation of photovoltaic (PV) central inverters with an output of up to 5MVA.
The inverter is part of Siemens’ new electrical Balance of Plant (eBoP) solution for PV power plant installations. The Sinacon PV inverter will be manufactured at Siemens’ Kalwa plant near Mumbai for the domestic market as well as for export.
The Indian renewable energy sector is the second most attractive renewable energy market in the world, having crossed 14GW of installed solar capacity. The government’s aim is to install a capacity of 100GW by 2022.
The new Siemens inverters and medium voltage inverter stations target large scale, ground-mounted solar PV power plants, comprising comprehensive eBoP solutions. The eBoP solution enables solar power to be intelligently integrated into the grid.
As a leading solutions provider, Siemens offers complete end-to-end planning, engineering and financing, all the way to commissioning and service, including optimum interconnection of energy storage systems and complete micro grids.
