AEG Power Solutions, a global provider of power supply systems and solutions for all types of critical and demanding applications, today announced that it has granted to the Ukrainian company SEMAG the exclusive right to manufacture solar invertersunder AEG PS technology. SEMAG is a joint venture created by SE Group International and Metropoliya. SE Group International is a group of companies, led by S-Engineering LLC which has since 2017 been granted the right to use the European Conformity (CE) marking on the equipment it manufactures thanks to its full compliance with European quality standards. The Metropoliya Group is a full circle engineering entity in the power sector – from idea to implementation and is a leader in its activity in Ukraine-
Acquiring AEG Power Solutions’ premium technology for solar inverters gives SEMAG and its parent companies SE Group International and Metropliya the capacity to manufacture solar inverters conforming to the German quality standards on the territory of Ukraine and to develop alternative energy in Ukraine.
The inverter equipment with power up to 1000 KW intended for solar power stations will be manufactured at S-Engineering’s facility in Odessa. Metropoliya and S-Engineering have already experienced joint cooperation in alternative energy in Ukraine. The creation of SEMAG and the possibility to manufacture one of the key components of photovoltaic plant under a world-leading German technology license is a further step in this partnership.
Aleksander Semenyug, head of SEMAG LLC and Director of Solar Power Projects of S-Engineering LLC explains: “The high-quality inverter equipment is a necessary component for all solar power stations under construction. That the equipment manufactured in Ukraine under the technology license of AEG PS means we will have a sufficient percentage of local production to obtain the U1 certificate. That will become an additional motivation to implement new solar power stations. Accelerating the process of transition to alternative energy sources will considerably improve the energy and ecological situation of our region.”
Jörg Liedloff, Vice President Business Development and New Markets of AEG Power Solutions, also comments: “We welcome the beginning of a partnership with Ukrainian companies. Thanks to the development of alternative energy in Ukraine, there is a growing demand for producing inverters locally in Ukraine. Finding a company that we could entrust our technology to took us significant time. The only candidate in Ukraine conforming to the high German standards of today is S-Engineering. We are glad to start cooperating with both Metropoliya, the leader of engineering in the sphere of power production, and S-Engineering, a Ukrainian manufacturer capable of meeting European-scale demand. We are confident in the success of this endeavour. It is crucial that our technology can contribute to the development of alternative energy in Ukraine thanks to equipment manufactured with our technology. This opens opportunities and we will continue to consider further plans.”.
