SMA has opened a 3.2MW solar testing facility in Niestetal in Sander Berg industrial area. The site will test large scale solar solutions to be used worldwide.

The ground mounted solar farm was built in just 3 months! The power generated by the farm will be used by SMA factory 3 as well as other SMA buildings on the premise.

“The open space system in the industrial area Sandershäuser mountain we designed especially for our testing purposes. Through them, we can test our new system solutions for large photovoltaic systems in close proximity to the development under real conditions and present to our customers. This saves us time and money. We already currently test the SMA Utility Power System with Sunny Central inverters, medium voltage block and DC technology, which we presented in June at the Intersolar in Munich for the first time to the public, “explains Jürgen Reinert, SMA Managing Board for Technical Development.
