Inventux Thin-Film Modules X-Series MICROMORPH pass TÜV certification

(PresseBox) ( Berlin, )
Inventux Technologies AG - a solar enterprise that was the first manufacturer in Europe to put series production of micromorph thin-film solar modules into operation last December and already produces modules with a power-rating of 120 watts - has successfully passed all tests required for IEC 61646 at the TÜV Rhineland. Inventux has yet set another milestone and is, next to Sharp, Mitsubishi and Kaneka, the first European manufacturer of micromorph photovoltaic modules that meet the high certification standards.

"After successfully conducting all tests required by IEC internally at the end of 2008 and handing over an Inventux product quality certificate to our customers, we are proud to have received the official confirmation of our test results from the TÜV Rhineland", says Roland Sillmann, Chief Technology Officer of Inventux Technologies AG. "The TÜV certificate has established itself internationally as the most important sign for quality during the last years. Especially because we do not utilize a turn-key factory solution to produce our micromorph modules and consequently follow our 'best-in-class' strategy regarding the selection of equipment and processes, the independent test results confirm the first-class product characteristics of the X-Series MICROMORPH."

The thin-film modules exclusively produced in Germany were put through several months of extensive examinations by the recognized TÜV Rhineland, including accelerated damp heat and freeze tests, thermal cycling, humidity and UV exposure as well as electrical and mechanical load tests. All normative requirements by IEC were confirmed successfully and in some cases even exceeded: The unique product design with rear backbars fulfills the mechanical load capacity of 5400 Pascal (540 kilogram per square meter) suggested within the norm. Combined with the stress- and tension-free load characteristics of the frameless glass/glass modules when installed, possible glass breakage is eliminated and utilization of the product in areas with high snow- and wind loads is possible.

"The modules having been tested by the TÜV were taken out of series production in Berlin, thus guaranteeing our customers and their project-financing banks the highest product- and quality standards available on the market", says Sillmann.

The TÜV-Rhineland certification helps the worldwide marketing of the non-toxic and future-orientated Inventux thin-film modules: "The successful completion of the qualification process in our accredited lab shows, that silicon-based micromorph thin-film technology complies with the strict requirements of all relevant international standards", says Andreas Cox, Teamleader for Thin-Film Photovoltaics at TÜV Rhineland and adds: "The state-of-the-art and highly automated production processes which we were able to witness during our factory inspection at Inventux allow for the complete back-tracking and a comparable quality of each product."
