RenewSys launches India's 1st NABL accredited PV Laboratory for Encapsulants and Backsheets
- Specialized facility ensures quality assurance on demand for project financiers, solar plant developers, system integrators, module manufacturers, and solar polymer component manufacturers.
An increase in field failures of solar power plants are being observed due to substandard or compromised module polymer components i.e. Encapsulants and Backsheets that are not visible to the naked eye. Thus periodic testing of the components used in modules becomes a vital indicator of overall PV module quality.
Hence RenewSys has established this specialized, independently run facility that ensures quality assurance on demand for project financiers, system integrators, solar plant developers, module manufacturers, and solar module polymer component manufacturers alike. The lab conducts tests like Gel Content, Density, Tensile Strength and Elongation, UV cut off, Opacity, etc.
Avinash Hiranandani, Managing Director, RenewSys India said, "The Indian solar industry is growing. The quality of the components used and their impact on plant performance will start gaining importance as PV plants get older and we see modules reaching mid-life in the field.
RenewSys has been working on innovation and reliability testing of Encapsulants and Backsheets at our Bengaluru Division. This was key in setting up India's 1st and only dedicated Encapsulant and Backsheet testing facility that is NABL accredited.
We are also organizing Technology Days from Nov 26-30, 2019. at our Bengaluru facility to help familiarize project financiers, EPC players, system integrators, etc. with the lab and to showcase some breakthrough technology related to Encapsulants and Backsheets.
Concurrently RenewSys has also set up a world class reliability testing laboratory for PV modules that is India's only Intertek certified Satellite® testing facility at Hyderabad. This lab has seven environmental chambers and that test modules in accelerated and adverse environmental conditions like damp heat, dry heat, temperature cycling, UV exposure, etc. The two labs can in tandem provide a truly holistic overview of module health."
