Inertek doubles PV testing capacity


The company said that the expansion is in response to growing demand for PV products.

The “state of the art” testing laboratory contains such equipment as solar simulators, environmental chambers, rain & hail testers, and impact and mechanical loading apparatus.

??“Organic growth of the solar industry, combined with our policy of faster project turnaround and customer access to our engineering team, has driven demand for our testing and certification services far beyond the capacity we planned just two years ago,” said Sunny Rai, program director, Photovoltaic & Semiconductor at Intertek.

Intertek provides the ETL Mark for compliance to safety standards in North America and Europe. In addition to the Lake Forest, CA lab, Intertek provides PV testing and certification through their lab in Shanghai China and through partners in Germany and Italy.
