Vikram Solar, one of India’s leading solar module manufacturers has been successful once again in claiming position of the ‘Top Performer’ in PVEL PV Module Reliability Scorecard 2023 by passing a rigorous PQP (Product Qualification Program) testing procedure. PVEL PQP is considered a virtual gold standard for module bankability across the solar industry. Vikram Solar’s PARADEA Mono PERC 144 cell Bifacial Glass-Glass solar module, which has already been a hot favourite in the international market, appeared as top performer through PQP tests. Vikram Solar’s stringent BOM selection criteria and robust process control on state of the art manufacturing lines have helped the company to consistently introduce top performer solar modules.
Mr. Gyanesh Chaudhary, Chairman & Managing Director, Vikram Solar shared on the achievement, “In pursuit of building an energy rich and sustainable future for all, we have always been focused towards quality, performance and innovation. Considering that, PVEL’s PQP tests are quite rigorous; this current acclaim speaks aloud of our product performance and reliability. Our consistent ranking in industry leading solar module testing processes reaffirm our product positioning. We are certain that this recent listing will add to our ongoing efforts towards capacity expansion, new market penetration and allow us advantage to speed up solar deployment worldwide.”
Vikram Solar’s PARADEA Mono PERC 144 cell Bifacial Glass-Glass solar modules have been ranked Top Performer across the categories- Light-Induced Degradation (LID) + Light-elevated Temperature-Induced Degradation (LeTID), Damp Heat (DH), Mechanical Stress Sequence (MSS), Potential-Induced Degradation (PID) and PAN Performance. The test results show extremely low degradation and PAN performance is amongst the top quartile for energy yield in PVEL PVSyst simulation.
Tristan Erion-Lorico, VP of Sales and Marketing, PVEL, said, “Vikram Solar’s modules have performed well in our Product Qualification Program and have thus received recognition in PVEL’s PV Module Reliability Scorecard for 2023. We congratulate Vikram Solar on their sixth Scorecard appearance in demonstrating module reliability through PVEL’s rigorous testing.”
The Product Qualification Program (PQP) assessment was conducted by PVEL, a leading independent test lab for the downstream solar and energy storage industry. The rankings are based on results from rigorous, comprehensive testing programs. Top Performing modules showed less than 2% degradation for the entirety of the test sequence.
