The new HQ is located in Shinagawa, Tokyo’s leading business district, and is part of an ongoing transformation of the company, following its official transition from ABB’s solar inverter business earlier in the year.
Japan’s solar industry is poised for growth, with the government aiming to have renewables reach 22–24 percent of national electricity generation by 2030. The country’s zero-carbon energy efforts have increasingly attracted investments from local and multinational corporations, notably in the construction of large scale and industrial-use solar power plants.
With a comprehensive, innovative portfolio of solar inverter products, systems and services addressing all market segments and types of solar installations, Fimer is well-positioned to support the demand in Japan’s utility-scale, and commercial and industrial solar sectors. The company is aiming to increase the number of client touchpoints through the launch of its new website and service centre. Expected to open at Tama Centre in Tokyo by 2021, the service centre will offer operations and maintenance (O&M) training, as well as on-site training for service engineers and service agents.
“Following Fimer’s acquisition of ABB’s solar inverter business in March, our strategy has been focused on creating customer value across all PV market segments, as well as leveraging expansion opportunities within high-growth territories” said Fimer’s Chairman Filippo Carzaniga. “I would like to express my heartiest congratulations to Fimer Japan on the opening of their new office.. Japan is a key strategic market, where we are presently seeing strong demand, especially in the utility-scale sector”.
Fimer Japan Country Manager Go Sekiguchi added that as the fourth largest global supplier of solar inverters, Fimer possesses strong expertise in the solar industry and that the company’s philosophy combines big company reliability with small company flexibility.
