Whether a photovoltaic system meets the expectations and reaches the estimated yields highly depends on the quality of the components used, as well as the development and construction processes.

In this regard SYBAC Solar leaves nothing to chance. We live by the motto “quality is our life”. On every level it’s 100% accuracy and 0 tolerance. It’s no secret that quality management begins at the executive level, where all important decisions are strictly made under the “four-eye” principle. But it doesn’t stop there. This process is used in every area of the company. Here are some examples:

Project development

In the planning and development stages of a project, the crucial decisions that determine the quality of the finished solar power plant are made. In the development phase, a highly qualified team of architects, engineers and technicians work on an interdisciplinary basis to solve all important issues concerning the project. Only when well documented solutions have been found for every issue the green light is given to start with the construction phase. This step is part of the fixed processes that define and control the flow of documents and information.

Purchases

The department that purchases the supplies not only works together with the experts at our company that are responsible for technology and carrying out the projects, it also works in close liason with the suppliers themselves. To prevent any loss of information and to identify and implement potential improvements at the earliest possible stage, emphasis is put on long-term relationships and the exchange of vital information on a regular basis. Visits and even audits are carried out at specified intervals with major suppliers – e.g. for suppliers of steel, solar modules or inverters.

Project Execution

When a project is in the execution phase, a management team of commercial and technical experts closely works together with site managers to secure the highest possible quality standards. A series of tests ensures that the plans have been implemented correctly and fit perfectly.

  • The substructures are regularly checked to ensure that the correct spacing is maintained to prevent shading and the modules are tilted at the right angle. To do this, SYBAC Solar is able to carry out in-house GPS-based analyses.
  • To be sure to meet the static specifications, the pile foundations are subjected to random pull-out tests.
  • During module installation, samples are regularly subjected to electroluminescence testing, optical control and output analysis. In addition, tests are also carried out by external service providers such as the TUV Rheinland. If there are any discrepancies, the modules are not installed in the corresponding section.
  • Once the electrical installation is complete, all sub-surface cables within the solar field are tested using a high-voltage generator to detect and correct any insulation problems.
  • A thermal imaging camera is used to detect hot spots in the module field and any inadmissible warming in the sections of the inverter responsible for transducing electricity.

Service and maintenance

A remote monitoring system is installed in every solar park. The service and maintenance department takes the technical responsibility for the system when it is taken into operation. The output of every park is monitored from the central control room. If there are any discrepancies, a fault analysis can be carried out immediately via a remote data request. If an intervention is necessary at the local level, the SYBAC Solar service team is on-site within two hours. Even when regular maintenance work, such as a mechanical check or electrical readings in connection with thermography is due, the extensive technical equipment and staff resources at SYBAC Solar ensure that an optimal service is carried out, guaranteeing high productivity of the solar park over the long term.
