Post date: 14/11/2017 - 18:37
The Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin (PI Berlin) has established a subsidiary based in Delhi, India. The new company will offer services like laboratory tests for modules and quality assurance in the planning, construction and operation of photovoltaic plants.
The office will be managed by Steven Xuereb, Head of the PV Systems Business Unit at PI Berlin, together with Saurabh Kumar, who will act as local coordinator for sales and customer service.
According to the PI Berlin, most of the modules used in India are currently sourced from China. »Our lab in Suzhou allows us to provide quality inspections for the Indian market directly in the country of manufacture, so it’s a fast and straightforward process,« says Steven Xuereb. Offering Indian module manufacturers consultation on production and quality »improves the ability of these local producers to stand out from the competition in the market.«
The Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin provides independent advice on designing, constructing and operating PV power plants worldwide. PI Berlin has already provided support for projects with a total rated output of over two gigawatts worldwide.
