October 27 (SeeNews) - German solar inverter maker Kaco New Energy GmbH on Wednesday said it has secured an order from Hungary for 2.5 MW.
The company is partnering in the country with Hungarian engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firm and distributor Szalontai. The latter has 2.5 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) projects to complete between November 2016 and January 2017, and Kaco’s inverters are already waiting to be shipped.
The order, struck early in October, is for 50 inverters of type blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT. Several weeks ago, Kaco announced a 50-MW contract to supply 1,000 units of the same inverter to Aldo Grup in Turkey.
In July, the German company said the future of PV markets lies in the Americas, Asia, Africa and the Middle East and unveiled steps to refine its focus. Yesterday it noted that the order from Hungary is the single largest contract from Eastern Europe so far this year.
