ZWANENBURG, The Netherlands & SANTIAGO, Chile--()--AEG Power Solutions, the energy technology and power electronics specialist, is carrying on developing its solar activities on growing markets outside Western Europe. The company is opening a new branch office in Santiago de Chile, focusing on this business. The office will be managed by Luis Garcia, former Managing Director of OpciónDos (Solar Engineering company, acquired by AEG PS in 2010) and with more than ten years of experience in Energy, the last eight in photovoltaic. This office will be supported by Phd. Freddy Cañizales, who has over 20 years of experience with AEG Power Solutions, and will be theTechnical Manager for Latin America.
“Chile is the place where the photovoltaic power generation is competing against more mature technologies face to face, explains Luis Garcia. On this side, this is the right place to understand the dynamics of the new photovoltaic era”
Although Chile, as many South American countries does not have a
feed-in-tariff or subsidies, a significant growth of photovoltaic as
power source is planned for the coming years. “Chile is the place where
the photovoltaic power generation is competing against more mature
technologies face to face, explains Luis Garcia. On this side, this is
the right place to understand the dynamics of the new photovoltaic era”.
The new office will offer the complete solar solutions of the group, including inverters and container solutions, combiner boxes and monitoring systems as well as service for ever-larger, ever-more reliable on and off-grid generating facilities.
AEG Power Solutions has a more than ten years track record in Chile. Companies like Codelco, Transelec, Celulosas Arauco, Tren Electrico de Santiago are already equipped with AEG Power Solutions products, all supporting critical processes.
AEG PS offers an extensive range of innovative, utility-grade solar inverters and backed up by a global network of service engineers and project services. Premium software-based solutions from the skytron subsidiary which monitor and control utility scale photovoltaic power plants, offer an unbeatable opportunity for delivering the most power from the sun to the grid. Over the past few years, AEG Power Solutions has equipped and commissioned more than 860 utility-scale solar installations around the world. “After South Africa and India, developing a direct presence in Chile is part of our solar expansion strategy”, explains Bob Roos, VP Solar Strategic Business unit of AEG Power Solutions.
