TÜV Rheinland has opened the doors of its seventh testing laboratory in Electronics City, Bangalore, India. The €2 million solar test center will be focusing on India’s solar industry and testing solar modules and systems. It boasts over 21,527 square feet of space, including an outside test field, five climate chambers, and two sun simulators.
“Our investment program for the solar industry aims to place our services within easy reach of companies in and for all booming markets and to offer them large test capacities. India cannot be neglected here. In addition, all our customers can call upon the decades of expertise gained by our now 180 experts around the world to test and certify systems, modules and components,” declared Friedrich Hecker, CEO of TUV Rheinland.
As India works its way to installing 20,000MW of PV power by 2020 and 100,00MW by 2030, TÜV Rheinland will be testing the quality and safety of modules and components as well as offering monitoring of production quality.
