PVTIME - FIMER, one of the leading manufacturers of solar inverter solutions, has opened its new Japan headquarters. Located in Shinagawa, Tokyo's leading business district, the new office will house FIMER's diverse and expanding team. This is part of an ongoing transformation to better serve the needs of its predominantly international clientele, following its official transition from ABB's solar inverter business earlier in the year.

Bright solar future

With a comprehensive, innovative portfolio of solar inverter
products, systems and services addressing all market segments and types
of solar installations, FIMER is well-positioned to support the demand
in Japan's utility-scale, and commercial and industrial solar sectors.

Japan's solar industry is poised for
growth, with the government targeting to have renewables account for
22-24% of national electricity generation by 2030. The country's
zero-carbon energy efforts have increasingly attracted investments from
local and multinational corporations, notably in the construction of
large scale and industrial-use solar power plants.

With a comprehensive, innovative portfolio of solar inverter
products, systems and services addressing all market segments and types
of solar installations, FIMER is well-positioned to support the demand
in Japan's utility-scale, and commercial and industrial solar sectors.

In reinforcing its commitment to create customer value, FIMER aims to
increase the number of client touchpoints through the launch of its new
website and service center. Slated to open at Tama Center in Tokyo
by 2021, the service center will offer operations and maintenance
(O&M) training, as well as on-site training for service engineers
and service agents.

FIMER's Chairman Filippo Carzaniga
comments on the opening: "I would like to express my heartiest
congratulations to FIMER Japan on the opening of their new office.
Following FIMER's acquisition of ABB's solar inverter business in March,
our strategy has been focused on creating customer value across all PV
market segments, as well as leveraging expansion opportunities within
high-growth territories. Japan is a key
strategic market, where we are presently seeing strong demand,
especially in the utility-scale sector. The opening of FIMER Japan's new
headquarters and upcoming service center reinforces our commitment to
customers, who have access to a comprehensive range of product and
service offerings. I have full confidence that the team is well-equipped
to fully serve the in-market needs of our clients."

Said FIMER Japan Country Manager Go Sekiguchi:
"As the fourth largest global supplier of solar inverters, FIMER
possesses strong expertise in the solar industry. FIMER's philosophy
combines big company reliability with small company flexibility and we
stand ready with installers, EPCs and distributors to navigate the
dynamic nature of the solar industry. Over the past few months, we have
focused on building a technically experienced and culturally diverse
team and look forward to optimizing clean energy transition for solar in
Japan."
