Advanced Energy to start manufacturing its inverters in Ontario, Canada


The company has formed a “strategic relationship” with an unnamed global company in electronics manufacturing services based in Ontario, in order to achieve this aim. It expects to start shipping locally manufactured products in the fourth quarter of this year.

To further broaden local content, its one megawatt (MW) and two MW medium-voltage integrated inverter solutions will also reportedly be manufactured in the state, through a separate local collaboration.

Additionally, the company says that it will create a new legal entity, so as to provide local support to its customers in the region. Initially, it explains, the new facility will provide Canadian customers with sales and customer support services, and will ultimately include field service and application engineering resources.

Furthermore, it is hoped that the regional manufacturing capability will provide Canadian customers access to Solaron and PV Powered inverters while meeting the requirement for local content by the Ontario government's feed-in tariff (FIT) program under the Green Energy Act.

“This expansion into Canada reflects our globalization strategy driven by growing demand for Advanced Energy inverter solutions, and marks our commitment to customers in this area. The Canadian market is expanding rapidly and is a key element of our growth strategy,” said Dr. Hans Betz, chief executive officer of Advanced Energy.
