Being a partnership between Odin Warehousing and Eternal Sun, The PV module testing company OdinSpire represents the very best of two worlds. Odin Warehousing, located at the Maasvlakte, is an important logistical chain in Europe’s main PV module haven: the port of Rotterdam, where 80% of Europe’s PV modules pass through.
The different components of PV module testing at OdinSpire
During a PV module test at the independent OdinSpire laboratory, the solar panels will be tested according to severe standards. The PV module tests may contain a thorough visual inspection, EL testing and IV testing. During the visual inspection, the PV modules will be inspected in terms of waterproof connections, visible damages, JB and wiring. During the EL inspection potential microcracks in the modules will be assessed. Finally, the IV inspection will be used to assess the Pmax of the PV module. During this test a state-of-the-art solar simulator of Eternal Sun will be used.
During an PV module test before ownership transfer, you will be able to get a pretty good idea about the quality status of the PV modules you have purchased. However, in order to be sure about solar it might be recommendable to set up a full Factory Inspection as well. During this Inspection the manufacturer in Asia will be audited and inspected by an independent local team. Would you like to know more about Factory inspections? Then click on the button below.
