Japan’s largest PV power plant is expected to be completed in fall 2013. Operator Kagoshima Mega Solar Power Corporation has chosen SMA as the sole supplier for inverters for the 70-megawatt project in the city of Kagoshima.

SMA delivers 140 Sunny Central 500CP-JP inverters, which have been specially adapted to the requirements of the Japanese market. The inverters guarantee the highest yields for largescale PV plants of more than 500 kilowatts. They can also be installed outdoors thanks to their robust enclosure. Additionally, SMA will supply 1,260 Sunny String-Monitors for monitoring the entire plant.
