FIRE PREVENTION AT SOLAR PANEL INSTALLATIONS
By inspecting the completed PV installation for any critical points using the delivery and inspection report from Techniek Nederland, any installation errors made at delivery become clear. It is important that in the delivery report access possibilities for emergency services and a clear floor plan with all hazard aspects are mentioned. It is also important that the inverters, infrastructure and potential equalization system are easily accessible and visible for periodic inspection. In order to disconnect the voltage on the DC cables in the event of an emergency, it is advisable to be able to switch off the DC voltage by means of a fireman’s switch directly at the panels. If these are not provided, the PV plant must be made voltage free in some other way.
