Sungrow plans 3-GW PV inverter factory in Bengaluru

Sungrow, an inverter solution supplier for the renewable energy industry, announced its new factory in Bangalore (also know as Bengaluru), India. The new inverter manufacturing facility will have an annual production capacity of 3 GW of central and string inverters.

Sungrow shipped more than 16.5GW of PV inverters worldwide last year, an increase of over 48% from 2016. Demands from India, the US, Europe, Japan, and other APAC countries drove much of the growth. The company was the number one supplier of inverters to India in Q4 2017, with a 27% market share.

The new facility will be launched in the second half of this year and will be the first Sungrow factory situated outside China. This is the company’s first manufacturing facility outside China. This addition will significantly enhance the delivery capability locally.
