KACO new energy has revealed that it has delivered 2GW of PV inverters worldwide to date. This places the company as the world’s second largest inverter manufacturer, behind SMA.
KACO shipped over 650MW of PV inverters within the first six months of 2010, pushing the company’s overall production of PV inverters to over 2GW of sold inverters worldwide. Global market forecasts confirm exponential growth to continue throughout 2010 into 2011.
The inverter company’s production capacities are currently fully utilized in order to meet the high demand on the PV inverter market. World wide growth in the Americas and other countries has spurred this increased demand for KACO inverters. KACO’s goal is to close the year of 2010 with over 1500MW of inverters sold.
“We are making full use of our inverter production capacities,” said KACO’s president Ralf Hofmann. “We are in an excellent position to reach our ambitious goal in 2010.”
In order to facilitate the expansion of the KACO brand and penetration levels in the Americas the company plans to launch the first generation of blueplanet transformerless inverters in 2010.
The 6400xi and 7600xi will be available to installers as soon as CEC testing is complete. Definitive release dates will be announced soon.
