Huawei secures route to Caribbean market with Soventix procurement deal


Huawei and international developer and EPC firm Soventix have agreed an annual 150MW supply deal.

As part of the agreement, Germany’s Soventix will use Huawei inverters for the 30MW Monte Plata project in the Dominican Republic.

Soventix has 34.5MW under construction, 136MW ready for construction and pipeline of more than 1GW in various stages of development.

“Partnering with Huawei means we are able to enter solar markets still in their infancy with additional entry challenges and still deliver profit and high yields, thanks to the superior development of our plant,” said Thorsten Preugschas, CEO, Soventix.

“Huawei’s FusionSolar Smart PV Solution, with its string inverters, provides us with the control and quality we need to develop successful projects today and in the years to come,” he added.

Huawei said Soventix offered them access to an attractive market footprint in the Americas, Asia and Africa. The developer has offices in South Africa, Canada, Chile, the UK, USA and the Dominican Republic.

Last month Huawei also secured a 400MW agreement with BayWa Renewable Energy. The 400MW figure was described as a “target volume” for the first stage of the agreement. The companies also agreed to cooperate on several engineering initiatives including testing of Huawei’s FusionSolar Smart PV Solution with string inverters using the company’s I-V Curve Diagnosis capability.
