Sungrow boosts its commitments to emerging APAC solar markets


Sungrow, the global inverter solution supplier for renewables, is accelerating its commitments to the emerging solar market in the APAC region, particularly in South Korea and Vietnam. In early April, the company’s featured products are on display at Green Energy Expo and the Solar Show Vietnam.

South Korea has outlined fresh incentives to prioritize renewable projects with a low carbon footprint, higher efficiency and stricter industry codes. Offering a comprehensive product portfolio, Sungrow is establishing itself as the best platform in the sector to address a wide range of demands. Commercial string inverter SG110CX, outdoor central inverter SG1250UD, integrated energy storage systems and one-stop solutions for floating PV plants are among the products unveiled at Green Energy Expo held in South Korea.

Vietnam is another solar hub in Asia witnessing a rapid growth due to abundant sunlight, booming population and strong economic growth. The company showcased–apart from 1500V product series led by SG3400HV, the 6.8 MW turnkey solution with the MV transformer, RMU, SCADA and PPC–a new 1000V string inverter SG110CX focusing on commercial and industrial installation, as well as the floating PV systems. Sungrow’s inverter shipments to this region have surpassed 1 GW.

The emerging APAC solar market has been experiencing dramatic growth over the last few years and Sungrow is embracing proliferating opportunities in the region, especially considering the proximity of the company’s manufacturing hubs.

“As one of the major dedicated players in the local solar industry, we are bringing forth a state-of-the-art product lineup together with service tailored for local customers,” said Luke Lu, President of Sungrow APAC Region. “We’ll strengthen cooperation with global partners in scaling up the applications of renewables and accelerating the steps to fulfill our mission of ‘clean power for all’,” he added.

Sungrow Power Supply has over 79 GW installed worldwide as of December 2018. Founded in 1997 by University Professor Cao Renxian, it claims to have the largest dedicated R&D team in the industry and a broad product portfolio offering PV inverter solutions and energy storage systems for utility-scale, commercial, and residential applications, as well as internationally recognized floating PV plant solutions.
