Sep 29, 2011 - Swiss-Swedish engineering group ABB (VTX:ABBN, STO:ABB) has opened a production line for solar string inverters and an engineering centre in Jueri, Estonia, the company said today.
The new line has an annual capacity of 400 MW and can be expanded to meet the growing demand for solar inverters, ABB said.
The engineering centre supports the solar inverter business as well as the motors and drives factories that are based at the same location.
ABB also installed a new solar plant to be able to test inverters produced at the new line. The solar facility has a capacity of 25 KW.
Solar inverters convert the direct current generated by photovoltaic cells into alternating current that can be fed into the grid.
