Leading global inverter solution supplier for renewables, Sungrow has revealed that its cumulative shipment to Latin America hit 9 GW at Intersolar South America 2022 this week. The company also debuted its “1+X” Modular Inverter, the SG350HX string inverter as well as the new commercial and residential innovation, fueling the energy transition and improving the grid stability and power supply resilience.
Unleashing the Potential of Solar in LATAM
Sungrow says that Latin America is a promising region for solar power. The company claims that it leads the growth trajectory and the market development with a new record of 9 GW shipments, while last year’s 5 GW local milestone is still in sight.
The primary momentum is in Brazil, which is one of the top five global solar market prospects over the next five years. Sungrow surpassed its 6 GW cumulative shipments in Brazil.
Leading innovation in Large-Scale and Distributed Solar Development
Tailored to utility-scale applications, Sungrow rolled out its “1+X” Modular Inverter at the expo. It said that the “1+X” Modular Inverter will lead the next generation of PV plant development. The product features a 1.1 MW single unit as the minimum, and the maximum capacity can be expanded to 8.8 MW by combining eight units. Customers can choose from 1.1 MW to 8.8 MW based upon their specific project requirements. The “1+X” Modular Inverter redefines both the “string” and “central” inverter.
The SG350HX, a latest 1500V string inverter optimized for Brazil’s utility-scale projects, was also displayed. The product, rated at 352 kW, is equipped with 16 MPPTs and is in compliance with large-format modules and tracking systems.
In addition, Brazil’s solar PV distributed generation (DG) is expected to experience a strong growth curve, especially after the approval and official publication of a long-awaited DG law that indicated more certainty, stability, and transparency to the market. Meanwhile, the surging demand poses evolving requirements on inverters including compatibility with large format modules, and optimized safety and yields. As a result, Sungrow updated its commercial inverter series ranging from 25 kW to 110 kW and the brand new three-phase residential hero SG15/20RT-P2.
“2021 was a record-setting year for Sungrow in Latin America, as we embraced a significant leap forward due to the continued dedication and the region’s growing demands. We’re ready to embrace more opportunities and challenges that will take place in these vibrant Latin American countries with cutting-edge solutions as well as professional and responsive 24/7 services,” said Ada Li, Head of Sungrow Latin America.
Li also stated that Sungrow will contribute to green manufacturing and operation and engages in international sustainability initiatives RE100 and EP100. He said that these factors reinforce its commitment to use 100% renewable energy across the entire value chain and improve energy productivity by 35% by 2028.
Recently, Sungrow set up the world’s largest BIPV project in China.
