Brandoni Solare

Brandoni is a completely Italian company. In 2003 the Group foresees the great potential of the renewable energy sector and in 2007 established Brandoni Solare Spa: a young and yet solid project aiming not only to Europe, but also South America, North Africa and East Asia. In the years the company has been investing a lot in R&D, testing innovative technologies with the purpose of improving not only the production process, but also people’s quality of life, contributing to the development of a new sustainable economy. Once created, the product is carefully tested, its quality is checked and finally placed on the market. The production line, one of the very few in the whole Europe concerning automation level, size and quality, is capable of producing 55MW/year of reliable and certified products.

Brandoni Solare is a project that comes to life and takes shape in 2007 in Castelfidardo, a province of Ancona, in the Marche region, a fertile territory where dreams come true.
In a few years, Brandoni Solare becomes leader in the MADE IN ITALY production of silicon multicrystalline photovoltaic modules , a goal achieved thanks to the passion and the tenacity of its founder, the president Cav. Luciano Brandoni.

Brandoni Solare is characterized by the continuous research of High Quality, thanks to the huge investment in Research and Development and the constant testing of new technological solutions.

The only way to guarantee a high quality product was 'do it ourselves', not only buying it or distributing it, but producing it. A philosophy that has always characterized Brandoni with a production line, among the first in Italy and the few in Europe highly automated with a total power of 40 Mw/per year.

The choice of high quality raw materials guaranteed by reliable suppliers is one of the basic goals of Brandoni Solare. In 2007 the German company Q-cells, leader in the production of multi-crystalline cells, signed with Brandoni Solare a five-year agreement as Main Partner for the supply of photovoltaic cells that ensure Brandoni Solare an highly performance module. An important milestone that marks an advantage against other competitors on the market.

A close-knit and professional team was the ingredient that was missing to complete the project. So Brandoni Solare selected a yound, highly trained staff among the talented guaduates of Marche Polytechnic University.

The sun is the element fuelling the journey of Brandoni Solare, we capture his light and we transform it into green energy to use over lifetime.

Protecting the environment is not enough.
We need to renew our life style with a new idea of consumption and energy saving. Simple actions such as switching off the lights when not needed, choosing the best time to use your appliances, and keeping up to date about renewable sources. Every single person can help.

To this end, is mandatory to guarantee a good quality, certified, and durable module. The energy savings, although useful, are nothing compared to the awareness of contributing for a healthier and cleaner environment.

The next step is promoting the concept of sustainability from the production line to our working environment and to our partners. Instilling to others the energy we have inside.

Everyone should be focusing on a common objective: ensuring a sustainable future to our Home.

The quality of Brandoni Solare module is due to a very careful selection of the highest quality raw materials; the whole process is completely automatic and offers very high performance and guarantees a very long duration. Brandoni Solare's production line is able to produce 40 Mw per year, and in February 2011 it will reach the total power of 100Mw. Brandoni Solare is the first company in Italy using the automatic assembly.

Using a total automatic system the PV modules produced have a greater efficiency, they are durable and easy to standardize. During the production the technicians never touch physically the cells and this is the most important phase to keep the module in the best condition ever. Each module is  is tested with a Flash tester in A CLASS and a Hypot tester to verify the electric insulation. The process of laminating is periodically checked through the Gel content test, allowing to verify the degree of polymerization during the process of laminating.

Brandoni Srlwas founded in 1989 producing furniture radiators. Since then it has been growing all over the world: Spain, France, U.K., Germany, U.S.A., Russia, Turkey, EAU are just few examples.

Investments in differentiated sectors, among them is photovoltaic since 2003, Brandoni Engineering is the R&D specialized centre devoted to daily research in the field of renewable energies.

Brandoni Espana and Brandoni Argentina are just two of the foreign commercial agencies of Brandoni Group. Moneta Immobiliare, M&M and B&B are estate agents in Sardinia. C.B. company is the ESCO, Energy Service Company, of the Group.

Brandoni Solare production line produces high quality modules, with a constant over time producibility. This is an essential characteristic for a good PV plant.

Every single production process is automated, employees are focused on production quality tests. The integrity of the final product is ensured by the fact that the cells are handled just by meticulous robots, never by people.

Tests and quality controls are distributed among the whole process in order to identify and solve any problem in very short time.
At the end of the production line an A class flash tester and a Hypot tester test the electrical insulation of the module.
