American multinational conglomerate GE has entered into a partnership with solar projects developer Belectric to install more than 100 1,500VDC ProSolar Central Inverter units by 2013-end.

The agreement follows a similar deal between both the companies earlier in July 2012 when Belectric installed GE’s central inverter utilizing Padcon’s 1,500VDC system technology at three of its solar power plants in southern Germany.

The new central inverter decreases system losses, besides balancing system costs and optimizing operation and maintenance costs, the company added.

GE Energy Germany CEO Stephan Reimelt said the company is pleased to collaborate with an innovative company like Belectric.

"Furthermore, this agreement underpins GE’s commitment to deliver innovative solutions and products that are tailored to the needs of the world and German Industry, also to support the successful implementation of the German ‘Energiewende’," added Reimelt.

Meanwhile, Belectric CEO Bernard Beck noted: "Our solar plants in South Germany run highly efficient with the GE ProSolar central inverter; we are very happy with their performance and are meeting our goal to substantially stabilize the power grid."
