GE has inked an agreement with Belectric to supply 1,500-VDC ProSolar central inverter technology by the end of 2013 in Germany.
As per the agreed terms, the company will supply 100 units of 1,500-VDC ProSolar central inverter for three solar energy projects in South Germany.
According to the company, the 1,500-VDC ProSolar central inverter, based on the GE 1,000-VDC ProSolar inverter solution, will decrease system losses and balance of system costs as well as reduce operation and maintenance cost.
Commenting on the deal, GE Energy Germany CEO Stephan Reimelt said the agreement inked with Belectric bolsters the company’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’.
Belectric CEO Bernard Beck said, "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."
The three solar power plants deliver about 15MWp of electricity to power approximately 4,000 households and reduce 10,000 tons of CO2 emissions.
