Italy-based Santerno has completed the installation of its concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) power inverters in the first phase of the 1.5 MW Mildura demonstration solar array in Australia. The power station, located in Victoria, was constructed by Solar Systems, a wholly owned subsidiary of Silex Systems Ltd.
Santerno says its solar components are being provided by NHP Electrical Engineering Products, which has been providing sales and service support for Santerno in Australia and New Zealand since 2003.
‘The successful completion of this project demonstrates the resilience of our solar inverters and their suitability for use in even the most challenging environments,’ says Santerno CEO Marco Tecchio. ‘We anticipate that, with the aid of partners such as Solar Systems, we will be able to continue to expand into global markets, including Australia.’
