Ingenia Solar Energy-PV projects – Consulting and engineering company

INGENIA SOLAR ENERGY (ISE) is a consulting and engineering company specialising in photovoltaic projects. Ingenia has extensive experience as technical advisor to both developers and financial institutions and its own independent laboratory specializes in quality control of photovoltaic (PV) modules and on-site inspections and performance tests of PV plants. The engineering team designs and optimizes large photovoltaic projects as well as roof-top installations.

The REMOTE OPERATIONS CENTER (ROC) is located at the facilities of ISE. This center is responsible of controlling and monitoring the performance of the PV systems all year long.

ISE LABORATORY is capable of testing 200 modules per week and is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation: class AAA solar simulator used to measure the max power of PV modules (according to international standard IEC 60904); thermo-graphic cameras to detect resistive hot-spots; and an I-V Curve tracer to check electrical strings of PV Modules on-site.
