India’s first mobile solar photovoltaic (PV) testing lab was designed and developed by the Mahindra Susten itself.

Mahindra Susten is part of the USD 20.7 billion Mahindra Group and one of the largest renewable energy companies in India with a growing global presence.

Further, this mobile PV Lab offers revolutionary technology which is unique in Asia.

Moreover, it is a one-stop mobile solution, which allows performance analysis of Solar PV modules, which constitute nearly 70 percent of the investment for a new Solar PV plant, at the site itself.

The testing procedure used in the lab ensures reliability and repeatability in line with standard procedures, leading to similar or better results than any stationary laboratory.

Besides, the lab has been accredited with ISO/IEC 17025:2005 certification from the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, an autonomous society providing recognition for technical competence during testing and calibration work.

It has Mutual Recognition Arrangements with several organizations including the Asia Pacific Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (APLAC), Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA), and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC).

The reports generated from the NABL accredited PV labs are at par with the ILAC and APLAC certifications and are accepted in 73 countries.

The company said in a statement that, results from the tests conducted in the company’s lab are useful to all stakeholders, be they developers, lenders, manufacturers, EPC companies or even O&M companies, since the results are an important decision-making tool in case of warranty claims against PV module manufacturers or even just to ensure the health and proper functioning of the PV equipment.
