Infineon Technologies Asia Pacific Pte Ltd and and Sungrow Power Supply Co. Ltd have signed a strategic cooperation Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in Hefei, Anhui Province to strengthen the partnership between the two companies and work with close cooperation in China?s inverter supply chain for renewable energy.

Arunjai Mittal, board member of Infineon Technologies AG and Cao Renxian, CEO of Sungrow Power Supply attended the signing ceremony.

The MOU aims to enhance the technical partnership between both parties; and underscore Sungrow?s drive for excellence in solar inverter technology. The strategic cooperation will better position Sungrow?s inverter designs in terms of higher energy efficiency, power density and reliability amidst a strong growth momentum and increasingly competitive PV industry in China.

"An Inverter is a complex configuration of several hardware and software sub-systems, therefore, it is important to cautiously select the brand, technology, design, process and expertise of the suppliers,"Renxian said. "To maintain our leadership in the Chinese market and expand to the European and American markets, we need to work closely with suppliers like Infineon who always pursues technical leadership."

"China is growing to become the largest PV solar market in the world. The inverters designed and manufactured in China not only meet the demands and requirements locally, but also progressively gain foothold in the international markets." Mittal commented. "The strategic partnership with Sungrow enables us to better understand the demands of the Chinese market and to enhance our application support on power system solutions," he added.

Infineon began its presence in China in 1995. Since the establishment of its first facility in Wuxi in 1996, Infineon has been on fast growth track. Now with more than 1,300 employees, Infineon China has become a major driving force of the company contributing one-sixth of global revenue in 2012. Infineon now operates a complete value chain in China, including R&D, production, sales & marketing, and technical support.
