One of the world’s largest trading platforms for PV modules and components – pvXchange – has become well established as a recognised supplier for procuring spare parts with its partner, ADLER Solar

Bremen, 21 April 2016 – pvXchange, the online trading platform for PV modules and components, regrouped in the spring of 2015. In the process, the enterprise, which was founded in 2004 and is managed by Martin Schachinger, entered into a strategic partnership with ADLER Solar, one of the leading full-service providers in the solar industry, at its head office in Bremen. Customers profit from the collaboration in several respects: the core competences of both partners complement one another perfectly in terms of content, technical synergies are exploited, and, thanks to their common location, the coordination paths are short.
pvXchange has long since established itself throughout the industry as an international marketplace for photovoltaic components in the B2B market. What is new, by contrast, is that entire stocks and relevant individual items are bought up and then tested and, if necessary, repaired at the ADLER Solar test centre. Apart from the sale of low-priced new products, the provision of replacement modules and inverters for existing plants and installations is a unique selling point of pvXchange – for instance, when the original product is no longer available owing to the stark consolidation on the PV market. In addition, special brands or types, or suitable alternative products, are specifically acquired upon request.
“With the expertise gained in more than ten years of market experience and up-to-date stocks of more than 10,000 old modules – both new and used goods from a large number of manufacturers – pvXchange has become the first place to go for procuring PV spare parts. What is more, our monthly module price index is being actively used by online portals, banks, business journalists, and select trade journals,” says Martin Schachinger, summarising the first business year.
