Solar-Log makes debut in India


German firm Solare Datensysteme (SDS), manufacturer of the Solar-Log energy management system, has joined forces with iPLON India.

The Indian partner, a market leader for large and utility-scale and industrial PV plants, will offer the Solar-Log portfolio in India and Sri Lanka. Pooling technical knowhow with local set-up and pricing knowledge, the companies will work together from the iPLON office in Chennai.

Developed and distributed since 2007, SDS’ Solar-Log is installed in 118 countries and monitors 280,000 plants with a total output of 12.79 GWp. The energy management system is compatible with 130 component manufacturers and more than 2,300 inverters.

“We look forward to the co-operation with iPLON starting in India and Sri Lanka as this [will offer] numerous benefits, especially for … PV market customers who are interested in protecting their PV investment technically and commercially. The co-operation with iPLON indicates clearly that no other monitoring company is able to offer this set-up and competence from one single source,” said Silvia Blumenschein-Schuetz, VP of Sales and Member of the Executive Board for Solare Datensysteme.

“We believe in the power of this synergistic partnership to develop unique, customized solutions for … clients. We [will] strive together with our partner SDS to achieve new ambitious targets, nullifying external competition by setting … benchmarks in the industry,” Victor Thamburaj, owner and Managing Director of iPLON India, added.

In 2011, iPLON established a strong presence in Gujarat and Rajasthan, including the world’s first multi-developer, multi-facility, multi-technology and multi-beneficiary solar park in Charanka, in the former state.
