Swiss solar inverter specialist Sputnik Engineering is set to exhibit its new range of SolarMax MT2 string inverters at next week’s Ecobuild show.

Sputnik Engineering opened its London branch in 2011 and has since been involved in several major UK projects including a 5MW solar park in Cambridgeshire, one of the UK’s largest rooftop systems at Devon Mill in Oldham and the 200kW installation at Glastonbury-based Worthy Farm.

“We have been well received in the UK market. Although there is a certain insecurity due to changing announcements of feed-in tariff cuts today, profit estimations and successful examples show that solar is still a very profitable investment,” said Daniel Freudiger, General Manager of Sputnik Engineering International.

The SolarMax MT inverter series offers efficiencies of up to 98 percent, maximising the yields of any facility. The three-phase devices are equipped with a maximum of two string connections per tracker, meaning string fusing should not be a requirement.

With a higher input current of 18A per tracker, the new MT2 inverters are particularly suited to high-efficiency modules.

SolarMax will also present its existing portfolio of solar inverters and system monitoring solutions at Ecobuild 2012, which is being held at London’s ExCel from March 20-22. You can meet the Solar Power Portal team on stand N3705.
