Senersun advised that its polycrystalline modules had passed testing performed by SGS for compliance with IEC 61701 standards for salt mist corrosion. The solar panels underwent four test cycles spread over 28 days. Each module was sprayed with a salt mist solution and then stores for 7 days at 40° C and 93% relative humidity. Testing confirmed that the panels were visually, dimensionally and functionally compliant with the IEC standards.
“This test is for us one more testimony of the quality of our products”, commented Alexandre Minuzzo, CEO at Senersun. “We welcome this new certification, which enables our partners in islands and coastal regions to install our panels with confidence. Yet, we do not forget that quality is not only about testing samples, and will continue to dedicate ourselves to providing free-of-defect solar panels, all certified individually by independent companies after production, like we currently do with STS-Certified.”
