SMA Achieves Fourth Place Worldwide for Maintenance Contracts

It goes without saying that PV systems, whether commissioned recently or some time ago, should function stably long term and generate high yields. It’s therefore no surprise that the demand for PV system services both before and after commissioning continues to grow. With its Operations & Maintenance service, SMA handles every aspect of technical management of PV systems, including regular maintenance of all the components in a PV power plant. An SMA maintenance contract guarantees stable operation of a PV system and ensures high yields.

In a recently published report by GTM Research, Megawatt-Scale O&M and Asset Management 2015-2020, experts confirmed the importance of inverter manufacturer expertise in providing system-wide services. This makes sense because, as specialists, inverter manufacturers have firsthand, in-depth knowledge of the inverter as the central component of the PV system. SMA has achieved significant successes in the O&M business in just a short space of time.
