On 29 July, the Italian Certification Authority (Istituto di Certificazione Industriale per la Meccanica or ICIM) inspected the Atersa factory in Almussafes, Valencia, under the requirements of the Italian "quinto conto" energy law. Atersa customers can now benefit from Italian government subsidies.
Atersa is the first Spanish company to obtain certification from the Italian Certification Authority accrediting the fact that its production is European, thus enabling its customers to benefit from subsidies that the Italian government awards to facilities installed using modules manufactured in Europe.
Following the inspection of the factory, the ICIM certified that the process of manufacturing 65 to 290 Wp photovoltaic modules takes place in Atersa's factory.
In March this year, Atersa modules obtained the UL (United States and Canada) and MCS (United Kingdom) certificates enabling it to continue its role as a leading company in photovoltaic solar energy.
All these certificates entail annual inspections of its factory in Almussafes (Valencia) which guarantee that the photovoltaic modules are produced under the most stringent quality controls.
