TÜV Rheinland has now officially opened its seventh solar modules and systems testing laboratory, based in Electronics City in the Indian city of Bangalore. TÜV invested €2 million in the new solar test centre, which will offer services to India’s burgeoning solar industry.

The test centre includes 2,000m2 of space, including an outside test field of 500m2, with equipment such as five climate chambers and two sun simulators. This makes it one of the most advanced PV testing laboratories in the entire South Asian economic area.

“Our investment programme 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,” said Friedrich Hecker, CEO of TÜV Rheinland.

“All our laboratories are working closely together and contribute to our global PV business. We are delighted about the opening of the new Indian facility which will enable us to cover the expanding demand and expected growth in the Asian region and continue to offer tailor made solutions that suit the needs of our customers,” says Stefan Kiehn, head of the PV testing facilities at TÜV Rheinland Japan.
