The Beginning of Manufacturing of Equipment for PV Power Plants Under the Technology of AEG Power Solutions in Ukraine
|On February 28th in Odesa S-Engineering LLC manufacturing facilities was signed the unique license agreement, under which AEG Power Solutions, with the support of its German affiliate AEG Power Solutions GmbH and local affiliate 3W Power Ukraine LLC, provided the exclusive right of solar inverters production under the AEG PS technology to the Ukrainian companies of SEMAG brand, created jointly with group of the companies of Metropoliya brand and SE Group International brand.
Metropoliya is a group of companies, leader of Ukrainian engineering of a full cycle in power production.
SE Group International – a group of companies, led by S-Engineering LLC engineering production company, is a unique Ukrainian producer of switchgear equipment, which quality conforms to the European standards.
AEG Power Solutions GmbH is the German branch of AEG Power Solutions – a global provider of power supply systems and solutions for all types of critical and demanding applications. AEG Power Solutions has decades of experience with UPS and power electronics, and grid integration, and is leveraging its conversion expertise to engineer and deliver solutions for renewables and energy storage applications.
Acquiring AEG Power Solutions premium technology for solar inverters gives SE Group International the capacity to manufacture Ukrainian product conforming to the German quality standards, such as solar inverter, on the territory of Ukraine and to develop alternative energy in Ukraine.
The inverters with power up to 1000 kVA intended for PV Power Plants will be made on the manufacturing facilities of S-Engineering company in Odesa.
Metropoliya and S-Engineering companies already have good experience of cooperation in the sphere of developing the alternative energy projects in Ukraine. Logical extension of this partnership is starting of equipment production, using the world known German technology in Ukraine, required for PV Power Plants. Despite the construction boom of alternative energy stations, inverters as one of the PV power Plant’s main components, have been never produced in our country.
Under Aleksander Semenyug, the Leader of SEMAG LLC and Director of solar power projects of S-Engineering LLC “the high-quality inverter equipment is a necessary component for all solar power stations under construction. The equipment manufactured in Ukraine under technology of AEG PS Company will have the enough percentage of local production for obtaining the U1 certificate that will become an additional motivation for implementation of new SPS into operation. Accelerating the process of transition to alternative energy sources will considerably improve energetics and ecological situation of our region.”
“We welcome the beginning of partnership with Ukrainian companies. Thanks to the development of alternative energy in Ukraine there is a growing demand for inverters’ local production. Finding a company whom we could entrust our technology took us a long period. The only challenger conforming to the high German standards of production in Ukraine now is the S-Engineering company. We are glad to start cooperation with both Metropoliya company, the leader of engineering activity in the sphere of power production, and S-Engineering company, the manufacturer of the European level in Ukraine. We are confident in the success of this endeavor. It is very important for us that the equipment on our technologies will be manufactured in Ukraine, and thus we could contribute to the development of alternative energy of your country. We have huge plans to continue lines of the equipment manufactured in Ukraine according to our technologies in the future.” – said Jörg Liedloff, the Vice President Business Development and New Markets of AEG Power Solutions.
