Shurjo Energy receives IEC certification


Shurjo Energy, a subsidiary of PAE Limited, was awarded the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) certification. The India-based company’s complete line of solar modules, which use Global Solar CIGS technology, were issued the certification by EuroTest Laboratori S.r.1.

Shurjo Energy earned the IEC 61646 and the IEC 61730 certifications, meaning that all of its modules built with Global Solar technology adhere to the commission’s requirements for functional, mechanical and safety capabilities for long-term operation and open air environments.

“Shurjo Energy has been solely focused on developing and producing a range of CIGS modules for the past three years, and this focus has allowed us to develop an expertise on the technology,” said Spencer Jansen, CTO of Shurjo Energy. “We have carried out numerous in-house and external tests, so that we fully understood the interaction between the materials that make up our modules, before subjecting them to the certification process. The knowledge we gained from our testing proved to us that Global Solar was the clear technology leader in CIGS and allowed us to pass the IEC test requirements on the first attempt.”

The company’s modules have been through the full range of IEC testing, including extra testing for modules without a frame. In addition, in order to meet local government supported programs, Shurjo modules have also been certified by the Electronics Regional Test Laboratory (East), India and the KS 1674 (East African standard) from Intertek.
