SMA Receives Intersolar Award for the Sunny Tripower CORE1

(PresseBox) (Niestetal/Munich, ) At Intersolar Europe 2017 in Munich, SMA Solar Technology AG (SMA) once again won the Intersolar Award in the “Photovoltaics” category. The expert jury presented the award for the Sunny Tripower CORE1. For the first time, this innovative string inverter allows installation directly on roofs or in the field, features an extensive range of communication and grid management functions and, thanks to its six MPP trackers, delivers maximum yields even in shading. The Sunny Tripower CORE1 thus reduces system operating costs and ensures up to 60% faster installation.

“By presenting this award for the Sunny Tripower CORE1, this year’s jury has singled out a product that will make a major contribution to the success of commercial PV systems worldwide,” said Nick Morbach, Executive Vice President of SMA’s Residential and Commercial business unit. “The string inverter is the perfect basis for new SMA solutions aimed at optimizing commercial self-consumption in all markets worldwide. SMA is once again making a valuable contribution to a future-proof, renewable energy supply.”

Project developer WIRCON impressed by this new concept
“The Bruhrain PV farm was one of the first projects to be equipped with the new Sunny Tripower CORE1 inverters,” said Steffen Steinel, technical director at the project development and energy service provider WIRCON GmbH. “We are delighted that the Sunny Tripower CORE1 has now received the Intersolar Award 2017 because we have already worked with SMA on numerous projects and, like the solution provider SMA, focus on innovation and reliability. We were particularly impressed with the revolutionary concept behind the new Sunny Tripower CORE1: Save on costs while maintaining maximum flexibility.”
