Hanergy Thin Film Power Group has announced that its US-based subsidiary, finished constructing Europe’s biggest flexible modules solar project in Den Bosch, Netherlands.
The US subsidiary MiaSole installed 418 lightweight modules on the roof of Maaspoort Sports Center in the city. It has the capacity to produces 125 MHz of clean energy per year.
Each module which measured 2.6m * 1m were fitted to the Evalon roof. Evalon happens to be an environment-friendly and long-lasting roof membrane, with a lifespan of up to 40 years and is suitable for PV solar modules compared to other roofing materials.
Notably, Hanergy’s solar solution used at the Maaspoort Sports Center in Den Bosch makes the building is labelled as the largest sustainable building with flexible modules, ensuring additional government subsidies.
Spokesperson, Dick Groenenberg of Weka, who installed the modules, said, “We were confident that the project combining Evalon with flexible thin-film PV would have great market potential. While we’re aware that there are varied roofing materials available in the market but this lightweight module photovoltaic solution from Hanergy is the only way to further enhance large-scale sustainability. We’re happy to associate with Hanergy Netherlands, more so, our identical expertise in thin-film solar and roofing will help us win many accolades in the future.”
“We look forward to work on more significant projects with Weka and together lead the thin film solar industry. Thanks to WeKa’s unparalleled expertise in roofing materials and coatings and our synergies, this project turned out to be most effective and successful,” added Senior Vice President of Hanergy Netherlands, Albert Lin.
MiaSole’s modules weight approximately 3kg per square meter, which is way lighter compared to its traditional crystalline silicon solar modules, as it weighs approximately 18kg per square meter.
Hanergy recently announced US$1.3billion HanTile sales contract with Japanese construction and solar power conglomerate, Forest Group.
