Michael Middlemast in the US

Michael Middlemast leads Seaward Group USA growth

Renewable energy expert Michael Middlemast is bringing his knowledge of the international solar industry to the US, as Business Development Manager of Seaward Group USA.

He will lead Seaward’s growth across North America, working closely with renewable energy installers, utility-scale solar operators and managers of commercial solar installations.

Michael, has more than ten years’ experience in the global renewables market, and will use his expertise to identify challenges and provide solutions for operators who want to ensure efficiency and reliability.

Based out of Seaward’s office in Tampa, Florida, Michael will support customers with Seaward’s high-quality range of solar PV test solutions – including the new 1500V, 40A Solar Utility Pro.

His work will build on Seaward’s reputation as a trusted, worldwide provider of test instrumentation for the renewable industry.

Michael said: “The solar industry in the USA is in the midst of an exciting period of growth and opportunity – I couldn’t wait to get here and become involved.

“In total, US solar PV capacity is expected to nearly triple over the next five years – and by 2022, more than 17 GW of capacity will be installed annually.

“That creates a significant challenge for installers and operators, who need to maintain efficiency, maximise output and minimise downtime by identifying faults quickly.

“At Seaward, we support the solar community and we are ideally placed to help meet that challenge. I look forward to helping operators and installers.”

Seaward’s range of products include solutions for residential, commercial and utility scale PV operators working at both 1000 and 1500V. Our latest innovation is the Solar Utility Pro 1500V 40A Solar Tester, which is the first tester of its kind to safely test multiple strings in parallel up to 1500V 40A.

For more than 35 years, Seaward has developed a strong reputation as an industry educator and provider of trusted products worldwide.

Seaward gives PV operators the experience and confidence to meet commissioning test requirements of the NEC and UL by providing webinars and solar training courses;
