Ningbo, China-Ginlong Technologies Co., Ltd. (Solis), a global leader in photovoltaic string inverter manufacturing has worked alongside UK renewable energy company Engenera to install a rooftop solar power system for a plastics manufacturer, Faerch Plast. At 2MW,
utilizing Solis 110kW inverters and with over 4000 modules this is a substantially large-scale rooftop installation.
Faerch Senior Management said “We are delighted with executing the next step in our renewables and carbon reduction journey. Energy and environmental management are at the heart of everything we do and we are committed to improving our production processes to minimise any negative effects on our surroundings. We are, therefore, delighted to have achieved our goal of using 100% renewable energy throughout the entire Group.”
Key points held Solis in higher regard than other brands during the benchmarking process. As this was a PPA project, the financial stability of the parent company was a critical factor. With over 15 years of experience and zero bank debt, Ginlong Technologies ticked this box easily. Other points that led to Solis inverters being chosen were product reliability, grid connectivity and design flexibility offered by multiple MPPT’s.
Designed for improved efficiency, increased yield and worry-free operation and maintenance, the Solis 110kW inverter is the ideal solution for this type of installation.
Sandy Woodward, Solis Regional Director for Europe said, “Designed specifically for commercial rooftop applications, the 110kW integrates our fifth-generation technology and best-in-class components to deliver an industry leading efficiency and performance. Working together with our commercial customers we can ensure that the maximum energy yield and ROI is realised.”
The launch of the new SolisCloud intelligent monitoring platform means that all installations can be tracked and partly maintained online with remote firmware updates also reducing many costly trips to site.
Solis is ranked among the top 6 manufacturers in the global string inverter market share.
No.1 in China for residential
No.2 Globally for single-phase
No. 3 Globally for three-phase
