Ginlong Technologies (Solis) has announced that it has collaborated with UK renewable energy company Engenera to install a rooftop solar power system for plastics manufacturer Faerch Plast. At 2MW, utilizing Solis 110kW inverters and with over 4,000 modules, this is a substantial large scale rooftop installation.
Faerch Senior Management commented: “We are delighted at taking the next step in our renewables and carbon reduction journey. Energy and environmental management are at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to improving our production processes to minimise any negative effects on our surroundings. We are, therefore, delighted to have achieved our goal of using 100% renewable energy throughout the entire Group.”
A number of key aspects gave Solis an advantage over other brands during the benchmarking process. As this was a PPA project, financial stability of the parent company was a critical factor. With over 15 years of experience and zero bank debt, Ginlong Technologies was able to tick this box with ease. Product reliability, grid connectivity and the design flexibility offered by multiple MPPTs also counted in the company’s favour.
Designed for improved efficiency, increased yield and worry-free operation and maintenance, the Solis 110kW inverter is the ideal solution for this type of installation.
Sandy Woodward, Solis’ Regional Director for Europe, commented: “Designed specifically for commercial rooftop applications, the 110kW integrates our fifth-generation technology and best-in-class components to deliver industry leading efficiency and performance. Working together with our commercial customers, we can ensure that maximum energy yield and ROI is achieved.”
The launch of the new ‘SolisCloud’ intelligent monitoring platform means that all installations can be tracked and partly maintained online, with remote firmware updates also reducing costly trips to site.
Solis is currently ranked among the top 6 manufacturers in terms of global string inverter market share, being no. 1 in China for residential, no. 2 globally for single-phase and no. 3 globally for three-phase.
