DNV GL to launch mobile solar lab in India

Norwegian DNV GL, a quality assurance and risk management company in the oil and gas, energy and maritime industries, is launching its first solar lab, a new mobile laboratory service for the on-site testing of PV modules in India.

According to the company, the solar lab »is India’s first mobile PV testing lab that can be transported to project sites anywhere in the country.« It will be launched at Intersolar, Bangalore, on December 11, says DNV GL.
In India, DNV GL-Energy has been involved in greenfield projects and has also supported transactions related to operational projects.

The »On-site Solar Lab« is an attempt to further strengthen field measurements and provide advanced and reliable support to customers.

The lab’s benefits include reduced turnaround time since modules are not dispatched to a stationary lab, elimination of logistics-related challenges for transporting modules, and reducing of plant downtime, says the company.
