The second biggest inverter manufacturer in China, Zeversolar, has agreed a UK distribution deal with Proinso.
The partnership, announced during the Solar Energy UK exhibition last week, will see Proinso distribute Zeversolar’s inverter line including single phase inverters from nominal 1.5kWp to 5kWp and three phase inverters from 4kWp to 20kWp. All models have already gained the G83 or G59/2 certification for the UK market.
“With Proinso we have found a reliable partner, who maintains a well established customer network in UK as well as in other international markets, such as Australia and India,” said Sven Schreiber, executive vice president for sales, service and marketing at Zeversolar.
The iFix-Solar flat-roof mounting firm also entered the UK for the first time at the show.
“We were looking at several markets in Europe, the UK market has really exploded in the last two years and we believe there is a lot more potential in the flat roof market,” said Dietmar Stotter, head of sales and marketing at iFIX-Solar. “It is a good time to come to the UK market. The size of it has grown quickly and it is a serious player in the European market now.
“You do a lot of things in this industry by feeling and there seems to be a positive feeling here about our products,” he added.
Tata Steel also revealed a new ground-mount system for the UK market during the Solar Energy UK event.
Module manufacturer Recom also agreed a deal with CCL to become its only UK distributor.
PV monitoring equipment manufacturer Solar Log also launched in the UK during the show where a number of established European players suggested they would alloacte more resources to the UK as focus shifted away from Germany.
