    Sweden: Svea Solar ordered to respond after several incident reports

    May 25, 2023 - M-Brain Nordic News


      After several incidents have been reported, the Swedish National Electrical Safety Board (Elsäkerhetsverket) is reviewing Swedish solar energy company Svea Solar. Jimmy Grilfve, case worker at the Board, said that reports about nine cases have been received since 2019. He stated that the cases include fire and the risk of fire in facilities as well as people being electrocuted. The Board is now questioning whether Svea Solar follows its control program and has given the company until the end of May 2023 to respond. Johannes Boson, head of Svea Solar's Swedish operations, stated that the incidents are taken very seriously. He added that the company has carried out a series of measures and improved its procedures in recent years. Svea Solar trained more than 300 installers in 2022 in electrical and physical safety and appointed 35 people who are responsible for safety and quality follow-up. Boson believes that these measures answer the Board's questions.
