GoodWe Becomes the World’s First Chinese Inverter Manufacturer to Obtain the Very Demanding Vde-Ar-N 4110-2018 Compliance Certificate

The MT-Series inverters are compliant and 100% safe for connection to the European grids!

PVTIME - In February of 2020, GoodWe became the first Chinese PV inverter
manufacturer in the world to receive an official certification from the
authoritative TÜV Rheinland Industrie Service GmbH from Germany validating that
its C & I and utility grade MT-Series Inverter has passed the latest
version of the VDE-AR-N 4110-2018 Technical Requirements for the connection and
operation of customer installations to the medium voltage network issued by the
VDE Testing and Certification Institute. These are extraordinarily important
news that give us enormous pride and it is our joy to share with our customers
the achievement of this important milestone.

To give some context: the VDE-AR-N
4110-2018 Technical Requirements for the connection and operation of customer
installations to the medium voltage network constitute a set of diversified
conditions put in place by the VDE Testing and Certification Institute that
network operators, generating plant operators but also component manufacturers
such as GoodWe need to meet in order to ensure the safe and stable connection
of energy generating equipment such as our MT-Series inverter to the European
electric grids.

The latest version of this set of technical
requirements (Guideline FGW TG 4 Rev.9) derive in great measure from the
European network codes and contain "expanded requirements for fault
ride-through of short voltage drop as well as for providing reactive powers
through decentralized power generating plants”.

The fact that the GoodWe has passed this
set of requirements contributes in a very important way to certify that the
GoodWe MT-Series is compliant with the European regulations and that the
connection of the MT-Series inverter to the European grids is safe as it does
not disrupt their stable performance.

GoodWe technically outperforms formidable
competitors: praise to the company’s R & D capabilities

In these times of fierce market
competition, this important achievement eloquently proves once again that
GoodWe is a global inverter player to be reckoned with. The VDE-AR-N 4110-2018
technical requirement are one of the most demanding and exhaustive standards of
the PV inverter industry. After months of dedication and a long-term collective
effort, GoodWe has been the first Chinese supplier to get this recognition and
this feat clearly illustrates the very high technical capabilities and
strengths that the company has reached over the years. Without a doubt, these
capabilities are now among the strongest in the whole industry and encompass
every element in the process of technological development of the company: a
great R & D team, best design and top of the line components.

The doors of Europe are now open for the
GoodWe MT-Series

The MT-Series is one of GoodWe’s most
successful and globalized inverters. For the past two years, the number of
deployments of this inverter across the world has multiplied, contributing to
raise the reputation of this inverter, which is considered, thanks to its
outstanding DC oversizing of 50% and full operation at extreme temperatures,
one of the most cost-effective in the industry with the lowest LCOEs.

On the back of its enormous success in
markets such as India, Turkey and Brazil and after being selected by a number
of international EPCs, the GoodWe MT-Series landed last year in Europe with
landmark projects in Hungary, where it was selected thanks to its remarkable
functionality, which includes PLC Communications and string level monitoring.

After passing the VDE-AR-N 4110-2018
requirements and obtaining this certification, the GoodWe MT-Series is now
officially recognized by the most authoritative technical body in the industry
such as the TÜV Rheinland Industrie Service GmbH as a compliant utility grade
inverter. This important success will contribute to open the doors of Europe
(and the rest of the world) to the GoodWe MT-Series, allowing us to have a
larger participation in the utility projects of the continent and as a
consequence a stronger contribution to the energy transition of the region,
expected to accelerate starting from this year onwards. This is thus a great
milestone and a great news that gives again great pride.
