Especially in the range of planning and construction we support our customer with advice and help to all. Essential steps from the building permit, the technical network connection and the planning of the transmission lines as well as the authorization process with the energy supplier are also part of our repertoire. As to the construction the following parts should be mentioned:

  • Civil engineering
  • Piping and wiring
  • Fluid management
  • Electrical installation, configuration and connection
  • Commissioning
  • Documentation

Research & Development

Even before the installation of the Energy Solution System we work with numerous experts in the development and research of the VRB. Thus, we are constantly improving the quality of the Vanadium and the efficiency of the process. The focus is on the characterization of materials and their exploration. Cell and system simulations are performed, too. In addition to that benchmarking is very important as well as the development of battery stacks (flow battery test bench). The constant improvement of the use of Vanadium is very important to us so that we can offer the best possible solution.

Our experts use different ways for the quality assessment of the Vanadium electrolyte, such as visual or UV light inspection, X-ray inspection or a chemical analysis.
The X-ray fluorescence analysis, the ICP spectroscopy and the gas analysis are part of the chemical and physical analysis as well as the physical analysis (e.g. FSSS, BET, laser diffraction).

Maintenance

The frequency and scope of maintenance depend on the individual system and its usage. So, Solibra sets its focus on a low maintenance operation throughout the whole process. Consequently this enables us to guarantee a quick support around the clock on different levels of support and short reaction times. The scope of work may vary from the maintenance up to the operation of an entire PV-plant. We make sure that renewable energy is integrated into the existing supply system without any more blackouts.

Through years of experience in the field of photovoltaics we can refer to numerous professional partners throughout the renewable energy sector. Therefore Solibra provides highly specialized services in collaboration with a global network, such as:

Inspections

• IEC 62271 202; Inspection A and B with SF6 and air-insulated MS Systems
• Protection class IP 24 d
• Temperature class 20 and 10
• EMV Inspection
• Oil tightness verification

 

The constant quality evaluation through the stack test and the electrolyte test is Solibra’s prime focus. We always strive to progress, so that we can offer the latest technology to our customers. In addition to the stack test we also use the Membrane electrode assembly and always try to advance the optimisation in renewable energy systems further. A reduction of network expansion needs on distribution level and a more efficient use of the existing network structure also results from the permanent improvement.
