PVTIME - Kiwa is partnering with PV Evolution Labs (PVEL) to support PVEL's growth and strengthen the Kiwa Group's presence in renewable energy.
Kiwa, an international leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification (TIC) has signed a partnership agreement with PVEL, the leading independent test lab for the global downstream solar and energy storage industry. Kiwa is investing in PVEL's growth as a new member of the Kiwa Group. The companies will collaborate to advance their industry-leading test programs and certification schemes, and to better serve their clients around the world.
Jenya Meydbray, CEO of PVEL, commented, "We are thrilled to join the Kiwa Group and establish a physical presence for PVEL in the European market and beyond. Thanks to our new partnership, we can leverage Kiwa's global consortium of laboratories to bring PVEL's bankability testing to a broader network of solar and energy storage manufacturers, investors and project developers."
Paul Hesselink, CEO of Kiwa, said: "While Kiwa is already active in the solar and energy storage markets, our partnership with PVEL significantly expands our footprint in renewables, particularly in the U.S. By welcoming PVEL into the Kiwa Group, we can provide our customers worldwide with a one-stop-shop for testing, inspection and data services that de-risk solar and energy storage projects."
