Expanding its Global Presence, Growatt Sets Up Service Centre in Brazil

Growatt, a leading Chinese inverter manufacturer has set up its Brazil Service Center in Mogi das Cruzes to expand its global presence.

The expansion falls in line with the solar PV installations in Brazil. Solar capacity additions in the recent years have drastically increased in the South American nation, with 371.9 MW capacity added in 2018, nearly three times the installations for the previous year. The rooftop segment accounts for a significant share of the installed PV systems.

The strong growth contributed to increasing investments by solar companies from home and abroad.

Growatt has shipped over 20,000 inverter solutions to Brazil since entering the market in 2016. The business has been growing at a fast pace and now it’s time for localisation after three years of development,” said Lisa Zhang, Growatt marketing director. The service center is currently staffed with four local service engineers at the moment. “With our service center established in Brazil, we can provide faster and better service for local customers.”

The inverter manufacturer focuses on providing residential, commercial and industrial inverter solutions. Its 15-22k three-phase inverters and 8-10.5k single-phase inverters have been quite successful in the market. “Our inverters are becoming increasingly popular in Brazil. And we are launching our next generation residential inverter MIN2.5-6kTL-X for the Brazilian market very soon. This is the powerful future solution for the residential PV system.”

“Many customers are attracted by its compact and cute design at first glance. It has an OLED display and touch button, which can last over three million clicks. It’s about 35% lighter than common inverters of the previous generation because we use light and flame-retardant aerospace grade materials. It has powerful smart functions as well. By connecting it to our Online Smart Service(OSS) platform, customers can monitor, manage and maintain installed systems remotely. It saves time and money,” added Zhang.

The firm has set high expectations for its soon to be launched new inverter models and business growth in the current financial year. “Brazil has great solar potential and the market will continue to grow. We will continue to increase our investments and improve our service in Brazil and South America. With our leading advantages in residential and C&I inverter solutions, our goal is to take 20% market share of the rooftop sector in Brazil. And we will work hard towards that goal!”
