DNV GL has acquired assets from Amplify Energy to boost its capabilities in solar energy.
The assets include environmental chambers, a dynamic mechanical load system, a precision photovoltaic module performance measurement system and additional electrical and mechanical test equipment.
The deal also includes custom tools developed to perform precise evaluation of operating PV plant performance, DNV GL said.
Amplify Energy was independently spun off from Yingli Green Energy Americas in 2015.
DNV GL head of department for laboratory services said: “Thorough evaluation of PV components in the lab and field requires specialized equipment and world-class facilities designed to enable throughput and repeatability.
“This new capability and equipment will nearly double our capacity to meet the growing needs of the solar industry.”
