Vikram Solar collaborates with UK’s largest electrical wholesaler
August 21, 2015
Kolkata/Dundee August 12,2015: Solar module manufacturer Vikram Solar teams up with Edmundson Electrical Greentech, the UK’s leading solar pv distributor. As part of the collaboration between the two companies, Edmundson Electrical Greentech has added Vikram Solar’s photovoltaic modules to its product range. The supply agreement covers Eldora Ultima modules with a total annual output of around 25MW.
Founded over 200 years ago, Edmundson Electrical boasts some of the most extensive experience of any wholesaler in its field. The company has launched its special brand for renewable energy, Greentech, in 24 locations across the UK.
Andrew Fawcett, Business Development Manager at Edmundson Electrical: “Vikram Solar is the ideal partner for us. Not only does the company’s tier 1 status demonstrate its future viability and efficiency, but its Eldora Ultima modules have also been proven to fulfil our strict quality criteria. Last but not least, we were also impressed with the particularly good price-performance ratio and Vikram’s local presence in Europe and especially the UK.”
Eldora Ultima modules are available from 250 Wp to 265 Wp and certified to operate in very harsh conditions. The UK’s leading independent renewable energy auditor, OST Energy, confirmed that, at the time of the audit in October 2014, the modules had the highest efficiency at nominal operating cell temperature (NOCT) of any comparable product it had audited.
“Edmundson Electrical Greentech provides local stock, service, design and support and is able to quickly and reliably deal with all requests, no matter how big or small, throughout the UK. Our collaboration means that Vikram Solar modules can be quickly delivered for use in projects throughout the country,” adds Davide Marro, Head of Sales & Business Development at Vikram Solar.
