So, according to the manufacturer, yes, you can upgrade your current unit.  As to whether this would need more than just the bigger battery - I can't tell from their site.  I would imagine you would need some kind of upgrade to the controlling hardware, but it's possible that is independent of the battery size.  

I'd fill out their quote request indicating what you have (include the model and serial number from the unit) and telling them you want to upgrade this to 60KVA.  Request a quote of ALL the necessary parts to do so.  Should be less than 40K.
