      Transporting solar modules - this is how safe shipping works

      Depending on the size and number, different methods exist for shipping solar modules.


      However, be sure to avoid transport damage caused by jerking, bumping or dropping the solar panels. This can cause micro-cracks in the solar modules. These impair the energy flow in the solar module and reduce the photovoltaic output.


      A freight forwarder makes special deliveries to ensure that the solar panels reach you safely and intact.

      Packing solar modules correctly

      The use of high quality packaging materials determines transport safety. So make sure you use a sturdy packaging material to protect the solar modules from shocks and vibrations.


      Dafür können Sie die Solarmodule vor dem Transportieren in eine Schutzfolie einwickeln und mit einer Polsterung wie Schaumstoff oder Styropor umgeben. Also use shrink wrap, wooden crates or cardboard packaging so that the modules are additionally protected from damage.


      You should take extra care and caution with concentrator modules, as they are even more sensitive than ordinary solar modules.


      Transporting solar modules safely

      Follow the packing instructions: Most solar modules come with instructions on how to pack and transport them safely. Make sure you follow these instructions carefully.


      In addition, the IEC 61215 and 61730 standards have been in place for several years to ensure an appropriate safety standard for the transport of solar modules. Therefore, please consider these instructions when transporting solar modules.


      There is an increased risk of impact or falling when reloading solar modules. To prevent additional damage during transportation, avoid reloading the photovoltaic modules. If this is unavoidable, it should be carried out by personnel trained to do so.


      In addition, some countries or regions have specific regulations for the transport of solar modules.

      Are solar modules considered dangerous goods?

      Depending on the type, some solar cells contain isolated substances that are classified as hazardous. These include, for example, lead and sulfuric acid. For this reason, the shipment of such solar modules is a transport of dangerous goods.

      The supply of solar models

      Solar modules are usually delivered on disposable pallets or special module pallets. These are designed to hold the solar modules securely and protect them from damage. The number of solar modules per pallet varies depending on the manufacturer. However, the minimum number for this is 4 modules per pallet.


      It is important that the pallets themselves are not damaged. Außerdem sollten die Solarpanels beim Transportieren sicher auf der Palette befestigt sein, um ein Verrutschen zu vermeiden. Therefore, in the best case, check the protection several times, so that you can ensure a damage-free transport.


      Before a newly developed solar module can be shipped for the first time, the manufacturer must subject it and its packaging to a number of transport tests. These comply with the DIN EN 62759-1 safety standard and are designed to guarantee undamaged transport.


      Here, the corresponding solar module is packaged by the producer and tested in an accredited testing laboratory. The following examinations may be performed during such an examination:

      • Vibration tests
      • Tilt drop test
      • Oblique impact test
      • Testing driving over unpredictable obstacles on the road, such as potholes and sidewalk edges
      • Insulation test
      • Thermal cycling test
      • Moisture Frost Test
      • dynamic and static load test

      As soon as the solar module has survived these tests undamaged in the packaging used, it may be shipped to customers by the manufacturer in this combination.
