Saatvik, a prominent Indian brand manufacturing premium solar photovoltaic (PV) modules, has entered into a contract with PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) to participate in their Product Qualification Program (PQP). The program encompasses a comprehensive suite of independent tests aimed at evaluating the performance and reliability of PV modules. PVEL conducts long-term reliability testing and makes the data and results readily available to solar developers, asset owners, and financiers operating in the industry.
Downstream solar buyers worldwide will have access to Saatvik module testing reports as they become available on PVEL’s online platform. PVEL shares testing reports with the global module purchasing community, offering independent and actionable reliability and performance data to buyers and power plant investors. This enables them to make informed procurement decisions based on the provided information.
Mr. Prashant Mathur, the CEO of Saatvik, states that opting for the PVEL PQP program will undoubtedly assist the brand in establishing a global footprint and boosting sales across various markets. This will enhance the brand’s visibility on a global scale, as stated by him.
Tristan Erion-Lorico, the VP of Sales and Marketing at PVEL, highlights that independent testing serves a dual purpose for manufacturers. It enables them to demonstrate the performance of their products under diverse conditions and aids in distinguishing between different model types in a highly competitive market. He expresses anticipation in collaborating with Saatvik to complete the PVEL PQP and subsequently informing their global network of PV equipment buyers and investors about the obtained results.
PVEL, a subsidiary of the Kiwa Group, holds the position as the foremost reliability and performance testing laboratory catering to downstream solar project developers, financiers, and asset owners globally. The combined expertise of PVEL and the Kiwa Group offers a comprehensive range of technical services that effectively mitigate risk, optimize financing, and enhance system performance at every stage of the project lifecycle.
