Power-One Inc. has commenced shipping PV inverter products from its Shenzhen, China, manufacturing and design facility. Production is located in the same manufacturing park as Power-One's existing factory for its traditional power-conversion products.
The new facility is expected to have the capacity to produce 1 GW of central inverters by the end of this year. In late 2010, Power-One announced the launch of its central inverters specifically designed for the emerging Asian market.
Power-One notes that it has received China Quality Certificate certification for sales to the Chinese market and that the company's new central inverters will also be manufactured to meet the demands of the rapidly growing Indian photovoltaic market.
