Global AC drives manufacturer Vacon has begun the production of its inverters for solar power generation in the company's factory in India, having inaugurated it in 2011.

The final assembly operations of solar inverters were commenced at Vacon's facilities in Bangalore in April this year.

Vacon's solar inverters, rated from 10 to 1,200kW, are cabinet-installed systems, and they are based on Vacon's AC drive technology. Vacon's factory in Bangalore manufactures products available for the power ranges of 10 to 200kW and 1,000kW, and their primary market area is India.

"The Indian market for solar power is growing rapidly and is, at the same time, rather demanding. Expanding the production of solar inverters to India allows us primarily to achieve prompt and cost-effective delivery times. In addition, we can better meet the local demand," said Jari Marjo, Vacon's product marketing director for solar energy.

    Now that the PV industry has unquestionably entered a new growth phase, all eyes are on which technologies will win through into the mainstream of PV manufacturing. PERC, n-type, p-type bifacial, heterojunction – all have become familiar terms in the ever-growing constellation of solar cell technologies. The question is which will offer manufacturers what they are looking for in improving efficiencies and cutting costs.

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
