India is set to become the third largest solar market in the world in 2017, expected to touch about 5 percent of the global solar capacity and ABB India is ready to support this growth. It has recently surpassed the 5 GW milestone for the supply of solar inverters in India.
Inverters are the heart of solar installations and ABB pioneered inverter production in the country in 2012. Last year, ABB India doubled its solar inverter manufacturing capacity in India. The expansion follows earlier milestones achieved by ABB India in 2015 – the first company to double the solar inverter installed base to 2GW in a span of five months. ABB’s end to end portfolio for solar energy including solar inverters, powers about 50 percent of the various solar projects in the country.
ABB is the leading global supplier of solar photovoltaic (PV) inverters. ABB’s solar inverter product portfolio ranges from 2 kW to 2 MW; 2 kW to 120 kW are string inverters optimized for residential rooftop usage and 250 kW to 2 MW central inverters are ideal for cost-efficient multi-megawatt power plants. The key differentiators of ABB solar inverters are high reliability, efficiency and ease of installation and maintenance. Plant management solutions including environmental management, software tools and lifetime support are also part of the portfolio.
