SolarMax Awarded Large-scale PV Contracts with 61.4MW in the UK

The Swiss inverter manufacturer Sputnik Engineering (SolarMax) is carrying out five large-scale photovoltaics projects in the London area in cooperation with partner companies.

For the projects, a total of 127 SolarMax 360TS-SV central inverters will be installed in 65 SolarMax TS-SV Compact Stations.

"We are delighted that we have been commissioned with the delivery of the inverters for these ambitious large-scale projects in the London metropolis area. This shows that high quality standards and rapid availability pay off," says Daniel Freudiger, SolarMax Regional Manager D/A/CH & UK. "Particularly in view of the increasing need for energy world-wide and the increase in energy prices, it is important to implement further large-scale PV projects. These projects are an economic and sustainable alternative to conventional power plants."

The five ground-mounted plants with a total power output of 61.4 megawatts will be completed by the end of March 2014; the first SolarMax products have already been delivered.
