[Module damage] Damaged solar modules were found during visual and drone inspections
This is an example of a problem found during a periodic inspection.
We checked all solar modules, the number of modules amounting to thousands, for abnormalities through a combination of visual inspection and infrared thermography inspection using a drone equipped with an infrared camera.
A damaged solar module was found.
Rainwater intrusion through the damaged parts may cause the internal cells to malfunction, resulting in the inability to generate electricity, or other risks such as increased risk of electrical shock.
After consulting with the owner, it was decided that the modules should be replaced, and the replacement was done by on-site personnel.
