When thinking of energy resources, solar energy comes to mind, which is one of the most efficient energy resources. At TÜV Rheinland, we care about safety, sustainability and possible impacts on the environment.


To achieve an efficient solar plant, risk minimization and extension of the plant lifetime should be considered. Investors' intentions may skew towards economical solutions, thus third party institutions such as TÜV Rheinland play a fundamental role in convincing investors and EPC companies to take quality measures in this aspect.

Inspection and consultancy services are of crucial importance in guiding people who are concerned with solar plants. Because little gaps that are not considered thoroughly may cause performance losses within 10 years.

For example, wrong product selection and bad labour are the most common mistakes. The most crucial component of solar plants is the PV Module. PV Modules should be selected wisely, assessed and tested randomly in laboratory conditions. If not, then quality problems like cracks, browning effect and delamination could be seen in four to five years which is a huge problem for a solar plant which is planned to function for a long period.

We offer our expertise to whom are concerned with solar plants. We inspect your plants and focusing on the current situation, we show you what may occur in the future. This helps you to take quality measures and precautions which will save your money and precious time.
