India’s first mobile solar photovoltaic (PV) testing lab, designed and developed by Mahindra Susten recently completed a milestone 1 GWp of plant testing. Mahindra Susten is part of the $20.7 billion Mahindra Group and one of the largest renewable energy companies in India with a growing global presence.
The Mobile PV Lab offers revolutionary technology which is unique in Asia. It is a one-stop mobile solution, which allows performance analysis of Solar PV modules, which constitute nearly 70% of the investment for a new Solar PV plant, at the site itself. The testing procedure used in the lab ensures reliability and repeatability in line with standard procedures, leading to similar or better results than any stationary laboratory.
The lab has been accredited with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certification from the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, an autonomous society providing recognition for technical competence during testing and calibration work.
It has Mutual Recognition Arrangements with several organizations including the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC), Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA), and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC). Read More
