Clenergy, recently announced that its PV-ezRack SolarTerrace V (STV), a utility scale mounting system, recently earned the TÜV Rheinland certification. The mounting system meets and partially exceeds the TÜV standard 2 PfG 1794/10.10 – an important quality indicator for mounting systems for PV modules and factory inspection.The accreditation lays a solid foundation for offering a class leading utility scale product for the global market.
STV debuted in June at the PV EXPO 2014 in Tokyo. Clenergy is proud of the strong positive response it received from developers, EPCs and installation specialists at the show. The new system is developed for utility scale PV-deployments with panels in landscape orientation. Designed with specials needs of developers and installers in mind, this innovative product offers a wide range of adjustability and easy deployment while enabling the implementation of large arrays.
“STV is another exciting implementation of our product vision and our efforts in the utility scale solar market,” said Mario Guzzi, Clenergy’s VP of international sales and marketing.
Its accreditation will further strengthen its competitiveness in the global market.
International standards and certification are a key part of Clenergy’s design map and manufacturing standards. Clenergy’s innovative and high-quality products have obtained approvals and certifications from various accrediting authorities in Australia, the EU, Germany and numerous other countries. The PV-ezRack SolarRoof mounting range, the PV-ezRack SolarMatrix Pro and the ground mounting PV-ezRack SolarTerrace II range also have TÜV Rheinland certification.
Molly Ge, Clenergy’s Global Product Manager, noted that this “is the first time for Clenergy to obtain a TÜV certificate” purely through in-house development and by directly applying with the accreditation firm. Clenergy’s PV-ezRack Team completed all the technical documents, static calculation and testing per the required standards. The TÜV certification is a strong statement of Clenergy’s technical ability to create high quality and innovative solar solutions.
