With its establishment in 2007 as a producer and developer of inverter stations, the foundation was laid for the rapid and sustainable growth of the company. As early as in 2008, PADCON commissioned the world’s first inverter with power of 2.5 MW. Based on this know-how, PADCON has developed products for everything to do with the inverter. As a result of those achievment, PADCON has become a partner for many well-known solar installers and had completed projects with a total of 200 MW by 2009.
At the same time, PADCON recognised the great need for the monitoring of PV Power Plants with respect to function and profitability and introduced central monitoringin 2008. As a leader in this field, PADCON expanded the system monitoring as early as in 2011, to include regulations that are now statutory obligations, as active power reduction and reactive power control.
Beeing mainly active in Europe until then, PADCON further expanded its internationalization in 2012 and thereby continued the consequent course of expansion. The official certificates of UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and of TÜV (Technical Inspection Agency) emphasise the high qualitystandard of PADCON’s range of products and enable to meet country-specific requirements to the full extent.
The 1500 Volt technology brought to the market in 2013 enabled power generation costs to be reduced significantly and thus increased the competitiveness of generating energy from the sun. For this reason PADCON globally stands for quality “Made in Germany”, innovative solutions and constant technological progress.
