Jiangsu Seraphim Solar System Co has been recognised in PVEL’s 2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard with two different mono-PERC modules achieving ‘Top Performer’ status in the PID test.
Seraphim has participated in the historical four module reliability tests three times and has consecutively achieved ‘Top Performer’ status in the PID test in the last two years, according to PV Tech’s annual analysis of Top Performers in the PVEL scorecard.
The annual 2020 PV Module Reliability Scorecard has been published in partnership with DNV GL and was recently announced globally in collaboration with PV Tech, via its TechTalk Webinar Series.
Jim Wood, vice president of North America for Seraphim Solar said, “We have over 300 quality check points that we go through on every module that is manufactured in real time. You can actually log on to our website and see your module made in real time, where you get to see the three EL test images of the modules, you get to see what the flash data looks like, you get to see what was the temperature of the back sheet when it was installed onto the back of the module.”

Virtually all PV modules for large-scale utility-based solar sites are imported to the US, especially from Chinese companies using manufacturing sites across Southeast Asia. This puts extreme pressure on US site developers, EPCs and investors, in understanding fully the differences between the companies offering imported PV modules How credible are the companies supplying the products? What is the financial health of the parent entity? Where is the module produced, and is this undertaken in-house or through third-party OEMs? What is the supply-chain for the module sub-components including wafers and cells? And then, how will the modules perform in the field, and is it possible to gauge reliability levels benchmarked against competitors? This webinar will provide insights from two of the leading experts in PV module manufacturing, supply, performance and reliability: Jenya Meydbray of PV Evolution Labs and Finlay Colville from PV-Tech. The 1-hour session will include presentations from Jenya and Finlay, and then a brand-new supplier scorecard matrix that combines the key outputs from PVEL's Module Reliability Scorecard and PV-Tech's PV ModuleTech Bankability Ratings, with specific focus on module supply and use in the US market.
