Silicon Valley-based power electronics company, ArrayPower’s sequenced inverters are being put through their paces yet again. Field tests conducted by juwi recently, appear to have caused a stir in Korea. Sales representative ShinHa has entered into an agreement with ArrayPower for these inverters that are claimed to have demonstrated higher energy harvest compared to conventional string inverters. ShinHa will provide sales and technical support.
ArrayPower’s sequenced inverter will be sold to module producers, to integrate the inverter during the module manufacturing process, facilitating cost reductions across the solar value chain and enhancing ease of installation by enabling a plug-and-play AC module. The sequenced inverter is backed by a 25-year warranty.
“Manufacturers in Korea have shown enthusiasm for our technology because of the benefits it offers the commercial-scale solar market and partnering with a reputable firm like ShinHa will allow us to expedite the acquisition of module partners in the region,” said Nick Cravalho, vice president of business development and marketing at ArrayPower. “Korean manufacturers have a rich history of integrating electronics, and thus are well suited to quickly implement an AC module incorporating ArrayPower technology.”
“Korea is quickly emerging as a manufacturing leader in the global solar marketplace,” said InYoung Suh, director of business development for ShinHa. “Our partnership with ArrayPower enables ShinHa to offer its network a unique solar product that allows manufacturers to differentiate themselves from competitors as they strive to attain greater market share. We are excited about the potential of Sequenced Inverter technology, and we look forward to a mutually beneficial partnership.”
