Two of the world’s largest and fastest-growing solar companies partner on purchasing
Hamburg / Munich / Hefei / Miami, May 21, 2015 – Today, Conergy, one of the largest global solar companies, and Sungrow, one of the largest global PV-inverter manufacturers, announce a strategic partnership in which Conergy will purchase inverters from Sungrow for many of its global commercial and utility-scale projects over the next year.
Conergy selected Sungrow after a rigorous evaluation process, which included multiple suitable candidates. Sungrow products were chosen for their proven transmission efficiency, which maximizes power output; lightweight design, which shortens the installation time; and precise readings, which ensure quick service support if any issues arise. The first project under this partnership is a 5 MW PV solar ground mount system situated in the center of the United Kingdom. The project will be equipped with Sungrow’s SG60KTL, with leading 99% efficiency, apparent power of 66kVA and only 55kg per unit.
“As one of the world’s leading downstream solar companies, with an over 3.4 GW pipeline, our target is to work with best-in-class global suppliers to ensure the sustainability and quality of our solar systems,” said Oliver Schweininger, Conergy’s Vice President for Global Purchasing and Supply Chain. “Sungrow meets our criteria with regard to quality, global customer service, and product diversity to support our global growth in all major PV market segments.”
Sungrow’s CEO, Professor Renxian Cao, said, “With our nearly two decade track record and a service structure that enables quick response times, Sungrow is an ideal partner for Conergy through its global expansion.”
