ABB has expanded PV inverter manufacturing in India to meet current orders of over 200MW for utility-scale power plants in the country.
A new production line in Bangalore came online at the end of 2012, with an annual nameplate capacity of 500MW for PVS800 central inverter product range, according to the company.
Antti Suontausta, ABB’s global product group manager for renewable energy power converters said: “With this new production facility we can support our customers in India with even more rapid delivery times and provide faster support for varying project needs. On-time execution and delivery of projects is vitally important for customers, especially now when the market is booming.”
The company said that over 100MW of its central inverters have been used in PV projects in the country since the end of 2011.
