Thanks to SMA’s technological advancements, the various stages of project execution have been eminently simplified. A major feature to aid this is the MVPS, a true outdoor plug and play container solution which ensures faster and safer transportation and commissioning. The Sunny Central inverters are designed, engineered and manufactured in Germany and undergo severe testing processes. With its patented OptiCool cooling system, they are true outdoor inverters ready to face the crucial challenges posed by demanding environmental conditions.”
