Mersen Surge Arresters launched in Sri Lanka

World-class French technology to safeguard solar PV panels from Lightning

3DH Energy Solutions, the power and energy solutions arm of the 3DH International Group, launched Mersen Surge Arrestors at a launch event held at the Movenpick Hotel Colombo recently.

The surge arrester devices launched by 3DH are primarily for PV solar systems and telecommunication towers.

The Mersen surge arresters guarantees protection from power surges caused by lightning strikes and overvoltage surges. In the event of a lightning strike, the short response time of the device ensures that all the electrical equipment within the premises is well-protected.

As electricity prices continue to rise, Sri Lanka is witnessing an increase in the use of renewable energy, primarily in solar PV systems. This is evident in over 250 solar PV companies operating across the island today.

Addressing the audience at the launch event, 3DH International Group Chairman Mr. Dinuk Hettiarachchi stated, “We are proud to launch a world-class lightning protection product here in Sri Lanka. This alliance aligns with our Vision to be ‘the partner of choice for international corporations in Sri Lanka’.

With solar PV systems expanding rapidly across the island, it is crucial that customers take into account the risk to these expensive systems from power surges caused by lightning strikes and overvoltage surges. By using Mersen products, they have peace of mind as they are guaranteed of world-class, fail-safe technology that comes with a lifetime warranty.”
