Intertek, a provider of quality solutions, has partnered with the Center for the Evaluation of Clean Energy Technology to offer the first renewable energy industry mobile testing platform.
The mobile testing center is suited for photovoltaic modules where they are installed. By being able to quickly test for electroluminescence, IV-curve measurement and infared imaging, technicians can easily identify issues with the cells and repair them on-site.
“Intertek is proud to launch the first PV mobile testing laboratory in North America, offering site operators immediate feedback on performance without the risks association with shipping modules to test facilities.” said Sunny Rai, vice president of Intertek’s Renewable Energy business. “Intertek and CECET’s combined industry expertise and new technology provide assurance that installed products are delivering top-notch efficiency.”
