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)
