Sonderborg, Denmark [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] Danfoss Solar says the demand for its grid-connected solar inverter range has increased significantly in 2009. As a result, Danfoss is now preparing for further growth in 2010 by increasing production capacity to 1 GW.
The expansion of the inverter production capacity will be located at Danfoss’ production facilities in Graasten, Denmark and will be finalized during the Q1 of 2010. At the same time product development, sales, marketing and administration will move to Danfoss’ facilities in Graasten to make room for the expansion of the inverter business.
“Despite the financial crisis’ general effect on the European photovoltaic market this year we have seen very high sales growth, which will continue the rest of the year”, said Henrik Raunkjær, president of Danfoss Solar Inverters. “The 3-phase TripleLynx inverter in the 10-15 kW range has become a huge success in both small and large installations, and the demand for the UniLynx range for residential applications has also exceeded our expectation.”
