Sunny outlook for your photovoltaic business
Since the physicist Udo Möhrstedt founded the company in 1982, IBC SOLAR has realized more than 100,000 PV systems with a total capacity of over 800 megawatts. The scope of these systems ranges from large photovoltaic power stations and solar farms feeding power into the grid to systems designed for off-grid power supply. They are used for supplying electricity to private residences as well as to hospitals in Africa, schools in Southeast Asia, radio towers in South America, or the oil rigs of major energy corporations. Today, IBC SOLAR employs a staff numbering over 300, most of whom are based in Germany.
The IBC SOLAR sales system is based on two pillars. The company supplies its customers with modules, inverters and other PV component parts produced by established manufacturers. In addition to the trading business, IBC SOLAR implements turnkey large-scale projects all over Europe, from the concept phase through to the connection to the public grid. These large-scale projects include planning and realization, extensive advisory services comprising consulting for funding and finance as well as subsequent monitoring of the systems and after sales support.
In order to guarantee the highest quality standards, IBC SOLAR obtains all system components from reputable manufacturers and defines strict product guidelines. Test and quality controls are not only prespecified, but also audited by IBC SOLAR engineers in the factories of the suppliers. Using an in-house flash test, the company’s experts continuously inspect the nominal output of the modules. Similarly, a climatic chamber allows the life cycle of modules and component parts to be examined in long-term tests (damp heat test).
Additionally, IBC SOLAR permanently tests its components on a 3,000 mC test plant. Using this test equipment, IBC SOLAR is able to ensure that all component parts stand up to the promises of the manufacturers.
