Intersolar 2014 - TMEIC wins Intersolar Award for innovation in solar technology

Solar Ware® Samurai recognized for design and efficiency

ROANOKE, Va., July 8, 2014 -- Every year, Intersolar Europe, the world's largest exhibition for the solar industry and its partners, pays tribute to most innovative developments in solar technology.


This year, TMEIC's Solar Ware® Samurai PV Central Inverter was among the three winners selected from more than 200 companies, in 21 countries worldwide, to receive an award in the Photovoltaics category.

"Earning this award serves as a major milestone for TMEIC's overseas expansion in Europe, where many of our competitors have a presence," Corporate Vice President and Vice President of the New Energy & Environmental Business Division Hisayoshi Kobayashi, said. "This honor also serves as further motivation in our resolve to contribute to the realization of a green energy society."

The Solar Ware® Samurai is an outdoor PCS with a stand-alone capacity of 1,667kW. Its highly advanced cooling system offers fanless operation up to 50 percent of the output power rating, and maintains high reliability while reducing energy costs.

The inverter also boasts the ability to operate efficiently under the harshest of environments, such as deserts where large-scale mega solar facilities are frequently installed.

According to Intersolar, "The innovative cooling system of the Solar Ware® Samurai central inverter makes the product reliable, fail-safe and easy to maintain." And, "The inverters' high resistance makes them suitable for regions with high solar irradiation and extreme weather, which increases profitability."

The Solar Ware® Samurai's high efficiency level and environmentally friendly design, make it clear to see why it was selected as a winner.

Since the inverter's introduction in 2013, TMEIC has installed over 60 units, and anticipates orders of more than 400 units in North America in 2014.
