Mitsui Chemicals India Pvt. Ltd.
India traces a roadmap to achieve an ambitious solar target of 280GW energy capacity by 2030. As the solar sector continues to grow, it becomes a fundamental requirement to understand the industry’s crucial aspects in the contemporary situation. Regardless of the power potential of the country, challenges ahead of long-term module performance and durability persist. In a similar vein, the hindrances faced by solar developers cannot go unnoticed.
Developing a power project requires an enduring link between engineering, procurement, and construction. Module developers build projects that perform to investors' expectations in the long term, from the pre-construction phase to successful financing. They tackle multifaceted concerns related to land acquisition, inability to ascertain quality while making investments based on price alone, poor decisions in the aspect of system design, lower tariffs, high capital costs, and more.
Furthermore, the developers' main risks post-installation are the extreme weather conditions, critical quality estimates, and on-field operating conditions that limit solar modules of their productivity. Thereby, ramping up the pace of large-scale solar facilities- amid the obstacles and restrictions requires solar advisory and consultancy services.
Ensuring Quality From Factory to Field
Mitsui Chemicals India, a global leader serving reliability of energy systems, has partnered with PI Berlin, Germany-based technical advisors in the solar industry to leverage their combined synergies. Well-versed with the contentions encountered by developers, Mitsui continues to supplement familiarity with the technical parameters, assists in the supervision and formulates monetary strategies and performance verifications, due diligence, factory inspection, and yield assessments (EYA & HYA), procurement support, and more.
Mitsui Chemicals India’s resourceful advisory services offer meticulous and timely assistance, resulting in a smooth and risk-free PV module installation and performance. The Group successfully utilizes accelerated stress testing that goes beyond qualification test levels and is required to predict PV module wear-out.
The long-term dependability and safety of deployed solar systems determine the commercial viability of PVs.
Henceforth, the module reliability testing procedures conducted under accreditation by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories (NABL) include the Highly Accelerated Stress Test and different phases of the Quality Assurance Program. These tests are subjected to root cause analysis and corrective action by simulating test conditions that are substantially more severe than actual field operating conditions alongside true field failure mechanisms.
Guaranteed Reliability and Robustness Through Years of Expertise
To ascertain that their employees bring quality assurance on board, the Group has provided international training under the guidance of PI Berlin experts to our entire operations team (technical and business development).
Mitsui Chemicals contributes to energy crisis resolution through its Japanese credibility and long-term energy-related businesses. The company's ambition to create a sustainable future is reciprocated through its TAHARA SOLAR WINDTM joint project and the Diagnostics and Consulting Business in photovoltaic power generation.
It also helps fulfill Mitsui's aim of establishing, implementing, and maintaining Quality System (in line with ISO/IEC 17025:2017) while perpetually improving customer satisfaction levels through the internal processes involving all the employees.
