Participants Speak

We would like to first of all thank our management for allowing us to participate in this training programme. The programme, jointly organised by Arbutus and Quest with Mr. Lokabhiraman as expert faculty, was very good as we could learn a lot about solar PV power plants right from the basics. Our queries and doubts were addressed to a high degree of satisfaction.  

We will ensure that we follow the procedures and carry out O&M activities with an increased level of confidence. It was our privilege to have participated in this O&M training programme.


Manager - Projects,

Swelect Energy Systems Limited

The Solar O&M training course provided to IREDA’s technical staff with valuable critical insights into parameters to improve assessment of power generation potential. It provides a strong base to assess and appraise investment proposals so as to have reliable power generation and revenues. All technical staff involved in review and technical due diligence will find this course helpful. Content in the training was very helpful and we expect similar training modules towards assessment of Project management, Construction phase and PVSyst Simulation protocols to be offered as well.

The PV O&M training programme over seven days was very fruitful. The practical knowledge that we all gained is a boon to apply in our daily O&M activities to enhance generation.
