PROINSO supplies PV products to UK-based renewable energy company RenEnergy

PROINSO has delivered the first order placed by British renewable energy solution provider RenEnergy, consisting of 560 kW in modules and inverters to be installed in a PV solar facility in Suffolk, Great Britain.

PROINSO, a company specialising in the supply of modules, inverters, trackers, and fixed structures for roof and ground mounted photovoltaic installations, has delivered a first order, consisting of 560 kW in TRINA modules and SMA inverters, to the British renewable technology solution provider RenEnergy. The PV roof mounting installation is located in Suffolk, northeast of London.

The end user is Frederick Hiam Ltd, a farming and vegetable packing business established over a hundred years ago. In its daily activity, the company will use 100% power generated by the new PV installation (637,687 kWh).

PROINSO sources have considered this sale to be very positive: "We're proud to have been selected by RenEnergy to be the suppliers for this important PV solar project, because it is one of the largest in the area and also because it is the first order delivered to one of the pioneer renewable energy solution providers, and it can be the first in a series of new orders in the future."

Norfolk based RenEnergy, who specialise in the design, supply and installation of renewable technology systems, have been at the forefront of the industry since 2003 and been involved with the installation of over 4MW of PV. At present, RenEnergy are one of the few UK-based companies to be MCS accredited in four technologies (solar PV, heat pumps, solar thermal, and wind turbines).

From 26 to 28 October, PROINSO is attending Solar Power UK (Hall 3 - B1-5) in Birmingham. At the event, the company will introduce the latest TRINA and SMA solutions, plus the usual range of products.

Bidding on the UK

PROINSO has recently opened an office and a logistics warehouse in London to strengthen its presence in the British market. To attain this goal, the company has a local team of highly qualified, experienced professionals in the renewable energy industry, headed by Mark Randall. PROINSO UK expects to reach a 10% market share in the UK in 2012.

At its new British location, 943 Yeovil Road (Slough), PROINSO also offers services and gives support to its 32 UK-based Qualified Installers. Moreover, the logistics warehouse in Slough, covering 3,000 sq m, is large enough to permanently keep large stocks of merchandise, which will result in shorter delivery times to better serve small PV installers.

It is worth mentioning that, within the company's international training programme, the PROINSO Solar Training School, PROINSO UK has signed a cooperation agreement with the renowned PV learning centre EcoSkies to train Qualified Installers. EcoSkies is one of the leading training centres for PV installers in the UK, with which PROINSO works in the development of training programmes and contents for the PV installers in the Network, contributing educational materials and organising conferences.

Global leader in the PV solar energy industry

PROINSO has facilities in the UK, Spain, Germany, Greece, Italy, the USA, Canada, China, and the Czech Republic. At present, its International Network of Qualified Installers includes 1,743 member companies around the world.

By October 2011, the company had supplied over 1,000 MW in modules and inverters delivered to the more than 1,743 solar PV companies in its International Network of Qualified Installers. This record high for the sector consolidates PROINSO's position as one of the leading companies in the solar PV sector, with 1 GW delivered so far.
