Chinese solar PV inverter manufacturer Sungrow—which has over 120 GW installed worldwide as of June 2020—has announced that its cumulative shipments to India exceeded 7 GW by the end of the year 2020. Out of the cumulative 7 GW, it sold at least 3 GW in 2020 alone.
The year saw the manufacturer secure some big orders in the highly competitive Indian market as a series of tenders and reverse auctions were conducted at regular intervals, keeping the solar project pipeline robust for upcoming years.
“Notwithstanding many challenges this year, we were able to ship more than 3 GW of inverters in one calendar year. With this resounding number, we have consolidated our position in both utility and rooftop markets in 2020,” said Sunil Badesra, Business Head, Sungrow India.
Sunil also emphasized that Sungrow’s vast service network spread across the country provides timely and comprehensive support to all customers.
Sungrow credits the shipment boost to its latest offerings in both central and string inverters for large-scale utility projects.
Sungrow’s shipments included the 1500V, 3.125 MW central inverter solution and the 1500V string inverter, SG250HX-IN. The latest commercial series also saw huge demand in the thriving distributed rooftop market, translating to a healthy market share in this price-sensitive segment.
Sungrow has a central and string inverter factory in Bengaluru, Karnataka, which caters to local and international demand.
“Since the beginning, we have produced more than 5 GW of PV inverters to cater to both global and local markets, and we see a mounting growth,” commented Sunil Badesra.
