December 6th, 2018

Suzhou, China, Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- GCL System Integration (002506.SZ) (GCL-SI) has passed Swiss Reinsurance Company’s CSR+ Reliability Testing Programme and has been awarded the first global reinsurance certificate issued under the CSR+ standard by Swiss Reinsurance (Swiss Re). CSR+, an extra-stringent testing standard for assessing solar panel quality and power performance, is far more rigorous than the testing requirements of the current IEC61215 and IEC61730 standards. The first enterprise in the world to pass the extra-stringent testing, GCL-SI has amply proven that its panels have excellent performance and reliable quality.




First Global CSR+ Reinsurance Certificate was awarded  to GCL System Integration


Swiss Re, with a history of more than 150 years, and with branches and affiliates in major cities around the world, is one of the world’s largest reinsurance companies. At the beginning of 2018, the company issued the Solar Panel Code of Practice: International Guideline on the Risk Management and Sustainability of Solar Panel Warranty Insurance (SPCoP). The core content of the SPCoP, CSR+ sets the reliability testing standards for quality and power performance of solar panels. The testing comprises the panel composite reliability testing programme as well as a comprehensive factory audit for all production plants.


GCL-SI’s Vice President He Deyong said, “CSR+ is one of the most advanced testing standards in the world. The fact that the company was able to successfully pass the extra-stringent testing demonstrates the reliability of its products. Meanwhile, direct underwriting by specialist energy insurance provider Alltrust  Insurance Company, together with reinsurance support from Swiss Re, offers robust insurance protection, strongly underpinning GCL-SI’s market development plans on a worldwide basis. GCL-SI hopes to cooperate further with Swiss Re in the areas of finance, insurance and manufacturing, and build a technical exchange platform to help accelerate growth in the alternative energy industry.”


The CSR+ standard is the latest reliability testing standard and is far more rigorous than that required by current IEC61215 and IEC61730 certifications. Swiss Re has always adhered to the philosophy of value investing and supports as well as carries out long-term partnerships with customers that have sustainable competitiveness. As the first enterprise in the world to pass Swiss Re’s CSR+ reliability testing programme, GCL-SI will receive insurance provided by Alltrust Insurance Company as well as reinsurance from Swiss Re for the panels it produces during the period of validity of the certificate. This alliance underscores the excellent performance and reliable quality of GCL-SI’s panels. Reinsurance support from Swiss Re is a strong endorsement of the quality of GCL-SI’s panels and provides a strong guarantee for panel sales. Meanwhile, Swiss Re’s insurance solutions and many decades of experience can further help its customers lower their financial and financing costs.


As a Tier 1 panel manufacturer, GCL-SI regards product quality as a priority and has gained the trust of customers around the globe on the basis of its stability and reliable product quality. GCL-SI consistently emphasizes that lowering costs and increasing innovation should be at the center of responding to grid parity. GCL-SI aims to provide greater value to customers with high quality and low price-performance ratios.
