Vacon and CEI to enter solar PV market in China

As a result of the cooperation between Vacon Plc and CEI (China National Electric Apparatus Institute Co), CEI has received the Golden Sun Certificate approved by the China National Quality Certification Center (CQC) for their 200 kW solar inverter.

This milestone in the cooperation between CEI and Vacon will allow CEI to participate in the bidding for the Golden Sun solar program run by the Chinese government.

The Chinese government aims to install 15 gigawatts of new solar capacity by 2015. To be included in the list of potential suppliers for the Golden Sun program, solar inverter manufacturers are required to have Golden Sun certification for their products.

The cooperation between Vacon and CEI combines Vacon's inverter technology know-how with CEI's system-level product packaging capabilities and power generation know-how. This results in a high-quality solar photovoltaic (PV) inverter product that meets the requirements of the Chinese market.
