We expand quality tests for solar modules in our own laboratory with a loading table

Lately we have expanded our in-house quality control laboratory with a loading table for both, mechanical-static and dynamic testing. Modules can therefore not only be subjected to a load test alone, but also in conjunction with mounting systems. As a result, our in-house quality control becomes even more closely meshed, so that our customers can rely on a permanently high system quality, which is checked independently of manufacturers.

e.GO electric cars to be produced with solar power

Source: e.GO Mobile AG

Solar power and electric mobility – they go hand in hand! Electric vehicles only contribute to climate protection if they are charged with electricity from renewable energy sources. This in mind, e.GO Mobile AG is going one step further. The CO2 balance of the electric cars should already be as positive as possible during production. The new manufacturing facility in Aachen was therefore equipped with a photovoltaic system. IBC SOLAR Photovoltaic modules with a total capacity of 1.5 MWp will be mounted on the roof in two construction phases and will help vehicle production to achieve a self-sufficiency ratio of 45 percent.

IBC SOLAR Turkey commissioned PV plant for a leading Turkish textile manufacturer

Recently, our Turkish colleagues have commissioned a turn-key solar energy project with a total capacity of 1.161 MWp in Merkez near the Bulgarian border. The ground-mounted plant has already been handed over to Edirne Giyim Sanayi, a leading textile company in Turkey. The PV plant was built for the company’s own electricity consumption and can cover 70 per cent of the energy demand. (more…)
