Mundra Solar PV Limited, the solar manufacturing arm of Adani group, has emerged as the only Indian company to feature in the fourth annual PV Module Reliability Scoreboard report, recently released by DNV GL.
Published by the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts the report is the most complete publicly available comparison of PV module reliability test results.
Mundra Solar PV Limited has been awarded the top award for three rigorous tests- Thermal Cycle 600, a Dynamic Load Test (DML), and Potential Induced Degradation (PID).
The report has been published by the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts.
According to Ramesh Nair, Chief Executive Officer of Mundra, Adani implements state-of-art facility with best industry practices to ensure superior performance.
“Developers and investors should be aware that not all manufacturers have their modules tested for quality and reliability to vouch for their product lifetime. Procuring unevaluated modules is always a risk that could have major ramifications for their projects. Adani is a committed manufacturer which has implemented state-of-the-art facility with best industry practices ensuring superior performance and reliability of its products,” said Nair.
Anshul Khandelwal, Head Sales, and Marketing of Mundra Solar PV Limited added that DNV GL is an invaluable tool for the developers.
“DNV GL’s PV Module Reliability Scorecard is an invaluable tool that developers should use for overall procurement strategy. This ensures the projects are built with reliable and durable products that would perform as expected; ensuring best returns,” said Khandelwal.
The solar installations are expected to cross the 100 GW (gigawatt) mark in 2018. The healthy surge in installations is driven by higher efficiency PV (Photovoltaics) modules with new materials projecting higher returns and lower levelized cost of electricity (LCOE).
Adani Solar is the first Indian company to vertically integrate businesses that offer services across the spectrum of photovoltaics manufacturing and is optimised for scaling up to 3 GW of modules and cells under a single roof.
