SMA surpasses 400MW solar inverter sales in Vietnam

SMA Solar Technology has sold more than 400MW of solar inverters across Vietnam in 2018, including its turnkey SMA Medium Voltage Power Station (MVPS) with Sunny Central inverters.

“Vietnam is one of the key markets for SMA in Southeast Asia,” said Boris Wolff, EVP of the Utility business unit at SMA. “In the last few years, we have seen a strong commitment from the Vietnamese government as well as the growing market demand in the solar sector. 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.”
