Hamburg, 21st June: SolarPower Europe just announced the world’s first Solar O&M Best Practice Mark on the Intersolar Europe in Munich, Germany. The self-certification-based label is meant to promote transparency and service quality of the PV O&M sector. The mark has been developed by SolarPower Europe’s O&M task force and is based on the O&M Best Practice Guidelines which have also been published by SolarPower Europe. O&M service providers can now get certified on the new website of the mark.
‘’One of the main challenges facing the solar O&M industry is the discrepancies between the quality of services provided by different O&M contractors. With the new solar O&M Best Practices Mark we will strengthen the sector by delivering excellence-led, proficient and reliable services in solar O&M” said Mate Heisz, Business Analyst and Coordinator of the SolarPower Europe O&M Task Force.
As a member of SolarPower Europe and PV O&M specialist greentech supports the concept of creating transparent quality standards for best-practice O&M. Fortunately, the extensive experiences gained in the O&M business as well as the continuous pursuit for improvement of the service quality enabled greentech to instantly qualify for the O&M Best Practice Mark.
To constantly adapt to changing technologies and offer individually optimized O&M services for the PV-projects of our customers, greentech offers further service products for all stages of a PV-project. For example, the planning and construction of a PV-plant is very important, because decisions with a high impact on the long-term success of the investment are made in this phase. As an independent service partner greentech secures a yield optimized plant design with all characteristics for an efficient operation and low maintenance demand. Consequently, mistakes in the plant design or yield assessment can be identified and corrected at an early stage. This results in lower operation costs and optimized yields of the PV-asset for our customers.
“The Solar O&M Best Practices Mark, developed by the SolarPower Europe’s O&M Task Force, sets industry wide standards of how O&M services need to be delivered to create the most value for our customers. We are proud that greentech immediately qualified for the mark. It is further proof of the high quality of greentech’s full-service approach.” (Aleksis Schäfer, Managing Director of greentech)
