Power Electronics steps up its expansion in the Mexican market
The company has been operating in Mexico for six years and has three technical Support centres
They have 180MW installed in Latin America with a further 150MW currently being installed (1.2MW in Mexico).
They present their HEC PLUS 1500Vdc; the inverter with which they have managed to consolidate theirposition as the market’s leading technology player.
Valencia (11-05-16).-The Spanish company Power Electronics, a leading player in power electronic technology, continues with its commitment to developing new technology and strengthening its position in Mexico. Following the success of its industrial division through the installation of equipment on offshore rigs, gas pipelines and various power stations, Power Electronics is enlarging its solar division in the Latin American market by stepping up its expansion process in Mexico.
The company, which has been active in Mexico for more than six years, has three technical support centres, where its “Power on Support” philosophy is helping to consolidate its market position.With “Power on Support”, the company commits itself to providing on-site support 24/7, whether the equipment is under guarantee or not. “Power on support” provides a technical phone helpline 24h/365, engineering, free start-up and training as well asstandby stockand components.
The company offers 3-year Guarantees against manufacturing defects on its industrial products (variable speed drives and electronic starters) and 5 years on its solar inverters. Guarantees are normally executed where the equipment is installed in order to minimize unwanted stoppages.The start-up of Power Electronics equipment is always free, the company’s technicians facilitates the setting up of equipment according to the specific use being given in each case, ensuring optimal performance; By doing this, the feedback from the start-up processes helps to improve the company’s product lines.
LATAM Sales Manager, Raquel Igualá, underlines the “company’s commitment to customer support and the technical support philosophy embodied in Power On Support, which has enabled us to position ourselves in the international market”. Raquel added “Power Electronics is firmly committed to expansion and to an on-site service as part of its strategy for emerging markets”.Power Electronics currently has an installed capacity of 180MW in Latin America with a further 150MW currently being installed. (1.2MW in Mexico).
Raquel Igualá also highlighted Power Electronics’ activities in these markets, which she described as “highly successful: in the case of the industrial division in Latin America for the last six years; and in the case of the photovoltaic division, for the last three”.
She also pointed out the “big potential of Mexico, especially following the outcome of the latest tender by the country’s National Energy Control Centre (CENACE), at which it was made clear that photovoltaic solar energy could compete with any source of power generation”.
HEC PLUS 1.500Vdc
The HEC PLUS 1500Vdc is a photovoltaic inverter that, with the new power voltages available (565Vac, 600Vac, 645Vac and 690Vac), sees its capacity increased to 3MW. With this model, Power Electronics has managed to consolidate its leading position in the market, signing six contracts that it is already delivering on.
A highly globalized photovoltaic market demands more competitive and intelligent solutions of the highest quality and reliability. The recognized HEC PLUS platform forms part of the select group of high-quality inverters made in Europe, now with the 1500 Vdc AND 1000 Vdc versions available. EPCs and developers will benefit from its improved price/installed capacity ratio, being able to design and promote more competitive photovoltaic plants.It represents a step forward in terms of competitiveness, offering a range of 1MW-2MW. It is currently the only Outdoor, Modular, and Redundant inverter capable of functioning efficiently in the most adverse weather conditions (extreme temperatures, damp, salt, altitudes of 3000m, seismic zones).
The Spanish company, Power Electronics, returns to MIREC Week in Mexico D.F., event that provides the opportunity to take a closer look at the Mexican energy market and at which the renewable energy community meets to consider the next steps in the new energy market’s progression.The congress, includes discussion on the future use of solar, wind, geothermal, and other clean energy in Mexico and Central America, as well as the latest developments on the regulatory, fiscal, and technological fronts.
