ABB doubles solar inverter manufacturing capacity in India

The new factory in Bangalore will meet the growing demand for solar inverters, the heart of any solar installation, from the solar photovoltaic (PV) industry

ABB India has opened a new solar inverter manufacturing facility in Bangalore to double the company’s production capacity for meeting the growing demand from the sector.

The expansion follows earlier milestones achieved by ABB India last year - the first company to double the solar inverter installed base to 2GW in a span of five months. A first for the nation as well. ABB inverters manufactured at Nelamanagala, Bengaluru help power 40 percent of the utility scale solar power generated in the country.

“ABB, a global leader in solar inverter technology, has also been powering solar projects across the country spanning the entire solar photovoltaic (PV) value chain, a key component of which has been our solar inverter technology, made in India. The government’s vision has provided the required catalyst and focus for clean energy and ABB is proud to partner this journey. This expansion reaffirms our commitment, innovation to cater to country-specific solutions and enhances our manufacturing presence of sixty years,” said Sanjeev Sharma, CEO and managing director, ABB India.

In 2015, Prime Minister Narendra Modi set the ambitious new target of 100 GW solar capacity by 2022 under the country’s National Solar Mission – a five-fold increase over India’s previous 20 GW target. The targets will be supported by a mix of public and private initiatives, helping to raise India’s energy security and meet annual demand increases of around 7 percent. India’s current installed solar capacity is about 8 GW out of which utility scale projects would comprise 6.5 GW to which ABB inverters are supplied.

Other ABB landmark solar inverter projects in India include the world’s first fully solar powered airport, the world's largest single rooftop solar project, the world's longest canal top solar project, schools and solar installations at all of India’s major airports. In addition to utility-scale central inverters, ABB also supplies locally tailored solutions such as drives for solar powered water pumps to replace diesel pumps for crop irrigation in rural areas with limited power grid access.

ABB pioneered manufacturing of solar inverters, the heart of any solar installation, in India with the Bengaluru factory in 2012. The Bangalore site manufactures ABB’s PVS800 central inverter series which have been gaining traction in India due to their ease of commissioning and reliable performance in even the harsh climates.
