SMA launches inverter-factory in South Africa

The SMA Solar Technology AG (SMS) launched an inverter-factory for local production in Cape Town, South Africa. It consists of a production line, storage facilities and a test center for central inverters.

With the new factory SMA meets the local content requirements under South Africa's Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPP).

According to Thorsten Ronge, General Manager of SMA Sub-Sahara Production Pty Ltd., with its ambitious expansion target for photovoltaics and high solar irradiation, South Africa is a strategically important market for SMA. "By beginning our local inverter production in time for the fourth round of the REIPPP Programme, we have once again strengthened our position as the preferred partner for project developers, EPCs and financing banks in this attractive emerging market," he said.
