KACO new energy Group has managed to chalk up orders totalling 600MW in the first quarter of 2017.
"We laid the foundation for this strong first quarter back in 2016 with our technology, sales and marketing activities. We were very keen to establish long-term partnerships. The best example of this is the framework contracts that we have put in place both in Asia and in Turkey," said managing partner Ralf Hofmann. The total order quantity represents double what the company had booked in at the same point in 2016. In light of this, the annual forecast for the group as a whole is now approaching 2.5GW.
The head office in Neckarsulm is profiting from the continuously increasing demand for string inverters "Made in Germany". "Our equipment consistently meets the stringent requirements of European standards in respect of both electromagnetic interference and safety. This protects our customers from costly judicial and economic consequences that would otherwise occur when using considerably cheaper devices from other manufacturers," managing partner Ralf Hofmann explained.
Nedret Ünlü, General Manager of KACO new energy Turkey, highlighted that: "Here, in the booming photovoltaics market in Turkey, we have been able to achieve a market share of 40 per cent through our strategy of consistent quality together with outstanding service."
