Ensure safety, quality and reliability in photovoltaic power plant construction
Investors, owners and developers of photovoltaic (PV) power plant projects need to minimise risk in order to maximise their returns. When PV projects enter the implementation phase, stakeholders have to monitor construction to ensure all contractual obligations are met, from foundation construction to project completion.
Any deviation in the quality of finished work could affect the projected energy yield. All aspects of construction quality – as well as the overall operability of installed parts and components – will have an impact on the expected yield through the whole lifetime of the plant.
With extensive hands-on experience with PV projects of all sizes, TÜV SÜD helps to identify possible delays, cost discrepancies and shortcomings in quality of work.
TÜV SÜD monitors the overall quality of work during construction.
Time schedule monitoring
TÜV SÜD compares the progress of your solar project with the approved time schedule to ensure that it meets approved key milestones in the construction process.
Meeting contractual obligations
TÜV SÜD confirms that the work meets all conditions stated in the EPC contract and that the construction runs in accordance with the approved project schedule.
We provide a team of experts focused on evaluating electrical and civil engineering aspects.
Our experts also monitor for compliance of PV technology with international and best practice requirements and standards (e.g. IEC 61215/61730/61646).
Civil engineering assessment
Our civil engineering experts confirm compliance of the mounting structure with the approved design (e.g. applied material, surface finish, inclination, foundings, thickness of the structure).
Our evaluation covers fixed, single-axis as well as two-axis structures. Our assessment covers compliance of components and finished work with stated parameters in the project documentation and with relevant technical standards.
Electrical engineering assessment
Our electrical engineers confirm compliance of the electrical part of the plant with approved project documentation.
We ensure that all electrical components are installed according to local/international standards and best practices.
PV technology assessment
Our PV experts ensure that PV technology comply with approved project documentation.
All components should be properly installed according to local/international standards and best practices, and have valid product certificates.
We provide clients a report with the overall evaluation for each visit performed during the construction phase.
