Fronius plans to launch its solar PV inverter subsidiary with a total of 12 employees working in sales, after-sales (Technical Support, Repair Center) and marketing. When the company first started its operations in China, Fronius secured a 1 MW (megawatt) project in Chongming and set up an agency in the country. The next step was to establish a subsidiary.
"We fulfil the requirements of the Chinese market spot on. China has a well-developed market for building-integrated photovoltaics. This is a key area in which we specialise, offering a wide range of products. The core market centres around 1 MW projects, for which the specification of our inverters is ideally suited," says Knut Wimberger, Managing Director of Fronius China.
