PV module manufacturer, aleo solar said that four of its module types had passed the ammonia resistance test by SGS Société Générale de Surveillance SA. The ammonia certification adds to previous certification for use in other extreme conditions such as the slat spray test. Polycrystalline-based aleo modules S_16 and S_18 as well as the monocrystalline module types S_17 and S_19 have now been declared to be ammonia-resistant.
“The certificate shows that the aleo modules are ideally suited for photovoltaic systems in agriculture – and more,” commented Dr. Jens Sabotke, technology and development director at aleo solar. “Like with the salt spray test, our solar modules’ robustness under extreme conditions is being tested. Our excellent quality of material and workmanship ensures high power yields on the long term in all fields of application.”
The modules certified to the ammonia resistance test mean they are suitable for installation on agricultural buildings where farm animals are held.
