Solutions for a sunny future
Solar energy is one of the most reliable and clean energy resources available to us today and many governments are looking to switch to solar to meet clean energy targets.
Investors and project developers need to ensure their return on investment and receive independent intelligence on expected site energy yield for investment decisions. Manufacturers of solar thermal plant equipment need to ensure their products deliver on quality and reliability as well as conform to international standards. Operators need to ensure the solar thermal plant delivers on yield targets and operates efficiently. Downtime due to malfunction and maintenance cost will impact bottom line.
TÜV SÜD provides a suite of services from solar plant design review to ongoing maintenance inspections once the site is operational. Upon onset of the project, TÜV SÜD experts conduct feasibility studies to determine site yield potential and profitability forecasts. We evaluate the project risks for mitigation and support to assess suppliers and provide product quality consulting. Once in operation, we conduct acceptance tests and regular inspections and have a wide range of services that ensure the safety on site including management of fire control and emergencies. Training of qualification of manufacturers and operators on safety related issues, as well as audit and certification to ISO 9001, 14001, 18001 and 50001 round-up our portfolio.
Our holistic service approach is designed to ensure maximum yield, optimum operational efficiency and reduce maintenance costs resulting from maintenance downtime.
