As three-phase string inverters, the blueplanet 20.0 TL3 INT and blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT inverters from KACO new energy are suitable for decentralised roof-top as well as ground-mounted solar power plants. Having outputs of 20 and 50 kilowatt respectively, they fit commercial- and industrial-sized PV arrays. The blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT even opens up possibilities for multi-megawatt solar parks.
Highest efficiency for utility-scale PV plants
Both inverters are wall-mounted devices and feature an IP65-protected housing for outdoor installation. In addition, they are equipped to meet requirements for overvoltage protection. The blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT has a particularly high efficiency of 98.5 percent and is available as a part of all-in-one packages that also include AC and DC combiners, compact transformer station, switchgear unit and low voltage distribution. This makes the inverter an economical alternative especially for utility-scale solar power plants.
New inverters to be introduced at PV Expo
KACO new energy has gained its foothold in the Japanese solar PV market by providing central inverters to large-scale projects; the 1.2 megawatt solar park at Fukushima airport being the most notable among these. With the launch of the blueplanet 20.0 TL3 INT and blueplanet 50.0 TL3 INT, the German-based company starts to make more inverters of its comprehensive international product portfolio available to one of the largest PV markets worldwide. The new string inverters are being presented in Japan for the first time at PV Expo in Tokyo from March 1-3, 2017. Visitors can get more information at stand number E24-20.

About KACO new energy:
KACO new energy is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of inverters for grid feed-in of solar power. Its product range covers the full power spectrum, from systems designed for a single family home to those for solar parks that produce megawatts of electricity. Since 1999, KACO, based in Neckarsulm, Germany, has supplied inverters with a cumulative power output of nine gigawatts. KACO new energy is the first company in the photovoltaic industry to achieve CO2-neutral production. Our technology offering extends from grid- and battery-connected solar inverters to inverters for combined heat and power plants and concentrator modules, as well as energy storage systems for solar power systems. In 2014 the firm celebrated the 100th birthday of the original parent company that, at the end of the 1930s, was one of first ever inverter manufacturers. More at www.kaco-newenergy.com
