Ensure safety, quality and reliability in PV power plant construction
Construction monitoring is a package of independent inspections tracking the quality of construction works and the progress of construction itself.
Construction monitoring serves to minimise the risks associated with quality and construction of PV power plants. By monitoring and addressing problems during the construction phase, stakeholders can avoid costly and time-consuming corrective actions as well as prevent delays to the start of plant operation.
TÜV SÜD has extensive hands-on experience with PV projects of all sizes and is well versed with the relevant legal requirements. During the construction stage, our experts perform periodic site inspections to review the progress of PV projects against their planned schedules.
TÜV SÜD monitors the overall quality of work during construction.
We compare the progress of your solar project with the approved time schedule to ensure that it meets approved key milestones in the construction process.
Our experts confirm that the work meets all conditions stated in the EPC contract and that the construction runs in accordance with the approved project schedule.
We provide a team of experts focussed on evaluating electrical and civil engineering aspects. Our experts also monitor for compliance of PV technology with international and best practice requirements and standards (e.g. IEC 61215/61730/61646).
Our civil engineering experts confirm compliance of the mounting structure with the approved design (e.g. applied material, surface finish, inclination, foundings, thickness of the structure). Our evaluation covers fixed, single-axis as well as two-axis structures. Our assessment covers compliance of components and finished work with stated parameters in the project documentation and with relevant technical standards.
Our electrical engineers confirm compliance of the electrical part of the plant with approved project documentation. We ensure that all electrical components are installed according to local/ international standards and best practices.
Our PV experts ensure that PV technology (modules and invertors) comply with approved project documentation. All components should be properly installed according to local/international standards and best practices, and have valid product certificates.
We provide clients a report with the overall evaluation for each visit performed during the construction phase.
