Sineng Electric is at Top 5 Globally in Solar Inverter Shipment. We have 10GW Factory at China & 3GW factory in India. Sineng Electric India is cementing its position as a leading Solar PV products company by offering various products covering Central Inverter, Central Distributed Inverter with Intelligent MPPT Box, String Inverter, EV Charging Stations, Active Power Filter, Static Var Generator, AC & DC Energy Storage System. 

 

Q. Brief us about your product and technology and also the new products that you will launch in the future markets?

 
-Sineng Electric is at Top 5 Globally in Solar Inverter Shipment. So far we have shipped more than 23GW.
We have 10GW Factory at China & 3GW factory in India.  In Indian market we have closed order approx. 230MW with Major Players.
Sineng Electric India is cementing its position as a leading Solar PV products company by offering various products covering Central Inverter, Central Distributed Inverter with Intelligent MPPT Box, String Inverter, EV Charging Stations, Active Power Filter, Static VAR Generator, AC & DC Energy Storage System. Many of these Products have been supplied to clients in India and remaining will be launched in India soon based on the Marker Outlook and Dynamics.
The Central Inverter solutions are available for Utility Scale Solar PV Plant of both 1000 V and 1500 V System voltage. The MW Capacity of these Inverter Solution varies from 1 MW to 3.125 MW. In addition, String Inverter with capacity ranges from 3 kW to 240 kW are also available for Roof Top and Distributed Solar System.
 

Q. Tell me something about your products, how they different from each other?

 
Presently, Central Inverters are available in Two Series. EP series offers only one MPPT Tracker, whereas CP series offers multiple MPPT  Trackers. 
EP series Inverters are available in both 1000 V & 1500 V and CP series is available  for only 1000V System.
All our Central Inverters are compliant of relevant IEC Codes and offers highest working efficiency with various Grid Compliance factors like Unity Power Factor, LVRT/HVRT Functions, SVG Function etc. 
One of the unique Product of Sineng Electric is Central Distributed Inverter Solution which comes with Intelligent MPPT Combiner Box. This patented Technology helps reduce Levelised Cost of Energy (LCoE) by increasing Power Generation by 1-5% with available Solar Irradiation and provides String Level Scanning, Monitoring and Diagnosis for improved upkeeping and maintenance of Plant.
Recently we have launched 3.125MW, 1500V Central Inverter which is without container, outdoor solution. 
We have one special inverter names as Central Distributed Inverter at 1MW, 1000V dc, it has more than 40 MPPT & provide the combined benefits of string & Central. It also gives more generation comparing to central Inverter.
 In 2019, we would be launching another Central Distributed Inverter with 4MW, 1500V dc solution, which would be comprises of 320MPPTs to cater Indian Market.
 

Q. “Energy storage is a game changer,” how much do you satisfied with the statement?

 
Wind & Solar power compliments each other, but Implementation of Storage system will enhance the generation in night period thereby increasing Project profitability. During the Day operation of Plant, Energy will be stored in System which shall take care of Electricity Demand in Non-Generating Period. Sineng Electric India is ready to offer both AC & DC Energy Storage System to Indian Solar Developers. However there is still time to witness the improved battery storage technology to flourish BSS.
 

Q. What are the opportunities and challenges you faced while manufacturing set up in India?

 
India is a big market & JNNSM has already set the guidelines to grow sustainably.  We have inaugurated our Indian Factory in Aug’2018 with 3GW capacity. India is the second biggest market after China with 8-10 GW annual adding capacity. We have seen GST, Anti-dumping duty,  Safeguard duty  Reverse Auction  & other tools to improvise the industry At the same time  Solar Visionary Plan, Make in India policy  &  Various States Solar Policy  promotes to start manufacturing in India. This trend is poised to continue to for next decade as Indian Government is very keen on achieving its Green Energy Target of 100 MW from Solar Power.  
Various apprehension of Indian Solar Developers related to Product Quality, After Sales Support, Availability of Spare could only be addressed by establishing the Local Manufacturing. That is exactly we have achieved through our Bengaluru Factory inaugurated in month of August, 2018. 
 

Q. What is the contribution of your company towards clean and green energy?

 
Globally we are one of the Top 5 Inverter Company having Supply and Installation base of more than 23 GW. With variety of products for renewable sector shows our commitment towards global goal of green energy demand & as stated earlier, we have shipped more than 23 GWs so far globally.
 

Q. How SINENG ELECTRIC is contributing in REI and what are your expectations from REI?

 
REI is biggest event in the Renewable Energy Sector where dignitaries from various sectorial areas like Developers, EPC Contracts, Engineering Consultants and Material Suppliers etc come and interact with each other. Sineng Electric took the opportunity provided by REI and launched 3.125MW inverter to the Indian Market In Addition, others products like String Inverters, Battery Storage Converters were also put on Display for Technical Elaboration.
