As silver sponsor of the second Vietnam Solar Energy Summit (Hanoi, 16-18 October), ABB will showcase its new PVS-175-TL string inverter, designed to reduce logistic and installation costs by up to 65 percent and improve Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) for utility-scale installations.
Its advanced digital capabilities through ABB Ability™, ABB’s comprehensive cross-divisional digital offering, improves user experience, reduces time on site through remote monitoring and predictive maintenance, and future proofs the system via automatic upgrades, compliance and integration with new IP protocols. This innovative design has recently been recognized by industry experts as the leading PV product innovation at the 2018 Intersolar Awards.
Doan Van Hien, Managing Director, Electrification Division at ABB Vietnam, comments: “As demand for higher voltage and higher power class ratings continues to grow, we are very excited to bring a scalable and versatile solution to the Vietnamese solar market. This latest product not only supports higher power densities, but improves installation with reduced commissioning time. It also benefits from advanced communication and digitalization for condition based monitoring and proactive maintenance for the operator, market leading features we are confident will be well received in Vietnam.”
ABB will also display its technology-leading solar inverter transformer, specifically matched to solar inverter sizes and their applications, from residential rooftops to commercial and industrial applications and utility-grade power plants.
ABB’s solar inverter transformers are designed to optimize the performance, reliability and return on investment of any solar installation with extended transformer life in all environmental conditions. The product is manufactured at ABB’s transformer factory in Vietnam and has secured multiple orders for projects in Vietnam and across the region.
In addition, ABB will be the exclusive technology supplier to host a pre-event forum titled “Solar Energy Storage” which will address growing interest in energy storage farms and the need to ensure grid stability and flexibility due to the intermittent nature of renewable energy.
ABB will share its latest technology innovations and breakthroughs in energy storage to grid owners, local developers and international investors to learn about this emerging industry and get a better understanding of the opportunities for renewable energy deployment in Vietnam.
