SolarMax to supply inverters for 61.4 MW PV projects in UK


Switzerland's Sputik Engineering, under the guise of its solar product company SolarMax, has this week announced that it is to supply 127 SolarMax 360TS-SV central inverters to five large-scale PV projects under construction in and around the U.K.'s capital, London.

The inverters will be installed in 65 SolarMax TS-SV Compact Stations, which will play their part in ensuring that these five PV projects achieve the projected installed total of 61.4 MW of solar power.

"We are delighted that we have been commissioned with the delivery of the inverters for these ambitious large-scale projects in the London metropolis area," said SolarMax regional manager D/A/CH & U.K., Daniel Freudiger. "This shows that high quality standards and rapid availability pay off.

"In view of the increasing need for energy worldwide and the increase in energy prices," Freudiger continued, "it is important to implement further large-scale PV projects. These projects are an economic and sustainable alternative to conventional power plants."

Each of the five PV plants are expected to be brought into commercial operation by March 2014 – a completion date that means the installations are in place before the impending fall in the Renewable Obligation rate available to solar developers is introduced in April next year.
