Goldi Solar forays into power backup solutions biz

New Delhi, July 13: Renewable energy player Goldi Solar on Thursday announced its foray into power backup solutions business with the launch of its VAMA On-grid range of inverters.

The Gujarat-based company is in the process of expanding its module manufacturing capacity to 6 gigawatt from 2.5 gigawatt (GW) at an investment of Rs 5,000 crore.

In a statement on Thursday, Goldi Solar said, “It has forayed into the smart inverter business and launched VAMA On-grid range of smart string inverters. The inverter range is available in single-phase and three-phase variants designed specifically for on-grid applications”.

Goldi Solar founder and Managing Director Ishver Dholakiya said the company targets a sizable share of residential, commercial and industrial segments in India over the next two-three years with the latest product.

“This technology used in VAMA increases surface area for heat transfer and enhances product performance. VAMA On-grid Inverters integrate advanced DSP Control Technology, guaranteeing higher efficiency of up to 98.6 per cent,” he added.

Goldi Solar co-founder and Director Bharat Bhut said inverters will be set up at the company’s facilities in Gujarat.
