FIMER, a leading tier one global solar inverter supplier, has announced the launch of two new platforms for the utility-scale sector – a high-power multi-MPPT string inverter and a modular conversion solution
FIMER’s new PVS-350 is the most powerful and power dense multi-MPPT string inverter in the solar industry, optimised for decentralised PV system architectures with a maximum efficiency of ɳMAX > 99%. To ensure the highest energy yield it also has the smallest footprint when compared to other similar products, and significantly reduces the risk of downtime that can occur with central inverters.
For centralised system architectures – which currently account for almost 40% of the market – FIMER is also launching PVS-260/PVS-300, a fully-modular solution engineered with a single-MPPT string platform.
It can easily replace central inverters in more traditional designs, significantly improving performance and lowering BoP costs, optimising the LCOE – achieving a 2.3% reduction on the LCOE of a modular conversion architecture compared to a central solution. It also has higher system availability, above 99.9 percent compared to 99.5% maximum from central solutions.
Maren Schmidt, managing director of the utility line of business, explained, “With the utility sector predicted to grow significantly over the next few years, we wanted to offer a solution that maximises ROI on both conventional system architectures and all other emerging system arrangements including storage, while maintaining the essential values of modularity.”
“These unique-to-the-market solutions are truly ground-breaking platforms for the utility segment, as they are able to meet the needs of utility-scale customers now, as well as easily adapt to and integrate with technologies in the future,” Schmidt added.
Filippo Carzaniga, chairman at FIMER, added, “It is a rapidly growing market and, as a result, FIMER recently announced plans to create a dedicated Research & Development Center in Italy for utility. As part of this commitment to R&D, we have exciting launches planned later this year, which will bring more innovation to the market.”
FIMER has also launched its ‘new era of FIMER’, a 360° immersive virtual experience which allows customers from all over the world to explore FIMER’s facilities, innovations and processes at its global HQ in Vimercate and its Terranuova Bracciolini R&D and production plant, from their own laptops or smart devices.
