ABB opens solar inverters and engineering centre in Estonia

ABB has opened its first production line for solar string inverters and an engineering centre in Jüri, Estonia.

The production line has a yearly capacity of 400 MW and can be expanded in response to growing long-term demand for solar inverters if required. The engineering centre supports the solar inverter business as well as the motors and drives factories that are based at the same location, ABB says.

“We strongly believe that solar energy will be used increasingly in our energy mix to reduce the effects of power generation on climate change and we expect that production volumes in this plant will grow steadily in the long term,” comments Ulrich Spiesshofer, Head of ABB’s Discrete Automation and Motion division. “This step is a milestone in our expanding solar technology offering.”

ABB has also invested in a 25 kW solar rooftop installation, which will be used mainly for testing and demonstration purposes in conjunction with the new production line.
