Revolutionizing Intelligent Manufacturing: SOFAR Modernized Factory Designed for Future Visited by PVO International


SOFAR, the global leading provider of PV & ESS solutions, was recently visited by PVO International Commercial Director Hans Ekelmans and
Procurement Manager Erwin Damen at the company’s brand-new manufacturing base in Huizhou.


The first phase of SOFAR’s latest smart and digital factory covers an area of over 110 thousand square meters, with a total investment of nearly CNY 800 million. After being put into full operation, the annual manufacturing capacity of solar and storage products is expected to add more than over 1 million units. The new factory is a colossal complex that boasts cutting-edge technologies in robotization and automation. It is explicitly designed to manufacture in the most efficient way and features optimized solutions in labour engineering.


Erwin Damen later made remarks in his blog. He’s convinced that quality control is the top priority for SOFAR, and all inverters undergo a rigorous and comprehensive 3×100% check before leaving the factory. First, every new inverter undergoes a diagnostic machine check, ensuring that all components are properly connected. Then, the inverters are tested to see how they function in practical situations. Finally, each inverter undergoes another diagnostic test before leaving the factory. SOFAR’s quality checks ensure that the expected failure rate after installation is reduced to an absolute minimum, giving customers a hassle-free energy solution.

During the visit, PVO International was impressed by the streamlined production procedure, the professional and well-trained employees, and the fully motivated management team. At the recently concluded Intersolar 2023, SOFAR and PVO International signed a 500MW MoU. Under this agreement, both parties will work together to bring forth all-scenario solar and storage solutions for customers worldwide.

Allen Cao, Head of SOFAR Europe, believes that this visit will offer global partners an exciting opportunity to take a closer look at the company’s modernized production processes. “We’re confident that our new factory is an innovative revolution in intelligent manufacturing perfectly designed for the net-zero future. Our partnership with PVO International signals a significant milestone in supporting the shared goal of facilitating a clean transition towards a greener society which ensures equal access to affordable, reliable, and sustainable energy,” he added.
