Sungrow to expand production facilities into India
Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, recently announced it would strengthen its global delivery capability by establishing a new factory in Bangalore, India.
Sungrow is a leader in the research and development of solar inverters, with the largest dedicated R&D team in the industry and a broad product portfolio offering photovoltaic (PV) inverter solutions and energy storage systems for utility-scale, commercial, and residential applications, as well as internationally recognised floating PV plant solutions.
The new manufacturing facility, having an annual production capacity of 3GW of central and string inverters, will support Sungrow's rapidly growing customer base. In 2017, Sungrow shipped over 16.5GW of PV inverters worldwide, an increase of more than 48% over 2016. Demands from India, the US, Europe, Japan, and other APAC countries drove much of the growth.
"Sungrow is always committed to optimizing all kinds of resources to better meet our customers' needs. With our same level of unmatched manufacturing and operational capabilities, the addition of a new factory in India will significantly enhance our delivery capability locally and elsewhere in the world," said Professor Renxian Cao, Chairman of Sungrow.
With most of its production facilities based in China, the new factory, which is to be launched in the second half of 2018, will be Sungrow's first factory outside China.
