Tata Power Solar Expands Its Manufacturing Facility

Tata Power Solar is India’s largest integrated solar company. Headquartered in Bangalore, Tata Power Solar operates in three distinct segments – manufacturing of solar modules, EPC services for solar power projects and creating innovative solar products. They are India’s leading solar manufacturer operating 400 MW and 300 MW of module & cell manufacturing facility in Bangalore, which is providing high-quality solar components to power plants.

TATA Power Solar modernized and fully automated its entire manufacturing facility. The company was also able to ramp-up to full capacity in record time, owing to its highly skilled and trained team. Part of this expansion was the purchase of a Spire Solar 5100SLP Blue. The light of the 5100SLP Blue contains 300nm-400nm and 1100-1200nm, to ensure PERC, IBC and HJT PV modules absorb the maximum possible amount of sunlight. Combined with the single long pulse technology, which goes up to 130ms with the 5100, there are almost no corrections needed when measuring the PV technologies of the future. For TATA the expansion is an important step in their development as a solar production facility. “The 5100SLP Blue delivers accurate and repeatable power measurements, enabling traceability to international gold module standards certified by the world’s leading certification bodies. Accuracy and traceability is value for module production facilities like TATA” according to Stefan Roest, CTO of Spire Solar.

The 5100SLP Blue, which is the successor of the 4600SLP, received an IEC 60904-9 Class A+A+A+ classification for spectrum, spatial uniformity, and temporal stability. This advanced class, not yet integrated into the current IEC standard, has been defined by TÜV Rheinland as having a performance two times better than the IEC Class AAA for each of the parameters.
