Leading PV inverter company Huawei said it had formed a strategic partnership with PV project developer and EPC firm, Strata Solar, which will include the supply of Huawei’s flagship Sun2000 string inverters to planned utility-scale solar power plant projects in North America.
Huawei has only recently entered the North America market, having become the leading inverter supplier for utility-scale PV power plants in China and has claimed to have supplied over 22GW of inverters to projects globally.
“Our market-leading experience with over 22 GW shipment worldwide, along with the proven reliability of the Smart PV Solution, makes this inverter the ideal choice for utility scale developers and EPCs like Strata Solar., said Bates Marshall, VP and General Manager of Huawei North America.
According to Huawei, its ‘Sun2000’ inverter delivers a 98.5% weighted efficiency rated by the California Energy Commission (CEC) and 98.9% peak efficiency.
The fan less, fuse less, natural cooling elements of the ‘Sun2000’ inverter provide increased reliability and lower maintenance, according to the company.
Markus Wilhelm, CEO of Strata Solar added: “We are confident that the Huawei inverters will meet our strict reliability standards, while providing a cost effective solution for our string inverter requirements.”
PV Tech is hosting a TechTalk Product Series webinar with LONGi Solar to help PV project developers, asset owners and interested parties become aware of the latest in utility-scale PV panel technology, performance and size that is redefining LCOE metrics.
The UK and Ireland markets are seeing multi-GW of pipelines being planned for new utility-scale solar and energy storage during the next few years. These complementary sectors are starting to form new built portfolios for some of the leading global developers and long-term owners. This webinar - featuring presentations from Finlay Colville and Lauren Cook - will explain what is driving the uptick in new project planning, a breakdown of the pipelines by pre-build status, and which companies are behind the new projects.
Understand fully the technical and logistical supply chains that determine the production and performance of solar modules, including all related factors impacting quality, reliability & bankability.
