Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin ensures future profitability of PV power plants in Jordan

Module quality is a crucial factor in securing project profitability in this competitive environment

Acting as an independent consultant, the Photovoltaik-Institut Berlin (PI Berlin) has assisted in the acceptance of four photovoltaic power plants with a total capacity of 57 megawatts (MW) in Jordan. The project developer, Adenium Energy Capital, made use of the institute’s expertise to ensure its plants can generate the expected yields and rates of return. This is particularly important given the increasing pressure on price during tendering processes, which means that production losses can significantly impact the project’s viability. In addition to undertaking factory inspections, PI Berlin monitored production, conducted lab tests and performed the final inspection of modules in the field. The renowned institute is due to present its PV power plant services at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi from 16–19 January 2017.
