" ReGen makes gearless wind turbines with technology provided by the German group Vensys."
Chennai, Aug 13 - City-based wind turbine manufacturer ReGen Powertech has announced further diversification into renewable energy space with its German partner Vensys to make mega watt-class solar inverters.

The company would soon come out with hybrid inverter for wind and solar power generation, R. Sundaresh, joint managing director told reporters here Tuesday late night.

The solar inverters will be made at the company's existing factories at Tada in Andhra Pradesh and Udaipur in Rajasthan where 1.5 MW wind turbines are made with Vensys technology, he said.

Inverters are devices that convert variable direct current (DC) generated by renewable power plants like wind and solar into utility frequency alternating current (AC) that could be fed into a power grid.

According to Anirudh Khemka, head-Solar, the company will be focussing on big sized solar projects and the inverter cost would depend on the kind of configuration that a buyer opts for.

He said: Going forward, ReGen would come out with hybrid inverters targeting the wind and solar power sectors.

No major additional investment is involved for the project as we will be making the product at the existing factories. The product is also largely similar to the inverters we make for wind power sector, Madhusudan Khemka, managing director, said.

ReGen would make three classes of solar inverters - 1 MW, 1.5 MW and 2 MW.
