For protecting your investment in a PV system, we offer a wide range of services for all project phases, from development to qualification and certification and beyond.

The greatest variety of project partners are engaged in the planning and implementation especially of large photovoltaic plants. Even before and during the planning phase, yield expectations may be too optimistic or design errors may already come to light that will negatively affect the system‘s return on investment.

During the system set-up, hundreds of workers from the greatest variety of shops of the directly participating companies, as well as subcontractors, are at times present at the construction site, with the safety of the PV system and for protecting your investment in a PV system. We offer a wide range of services for all project phases, from development to qualification and certification and beyond the long-term yield basically depending on the quality of the installation work. An equally large risk comes from possibly defective PV modules that do not have the documented output or whose inferior production quality will not guarantee the desired long-term stability.

Representative samples can be taken for determining the performance of the PV parks (Quick Performance Check). Tests on a small random sample for determining the workmanship regarding long-term suitability (Quality Benchmark) also help assess longterm performance and serve as proof of the assured product properties.

Only comprehensive quality assurance – from site evaluation and system inspection to system monitoring, including checking the validity of monitoring measurement data and management services – can reliably minimise these risks.
