Energy Conversion Devices (ECD) has been selected by Recurrent Energy to deliver 4.8MWp of solar generating systems for eight separate building rooftops at ProLogis Park Sant Boi in Barcelona and ProLogis Park Alcala in Madrid, Spain. ECD will be supplying the project with Uni-Solar PV laminates, part of its building integrated and commercial rooftop line. The company will also provide development resources through its subsidiary, Solar Integrated.
Recurrent Energy will own the power systems while the company will lease the installed rooftops from ProLogis. Solar Integrated’s role will include engineering, procuring, and constructing the solar PV systems — totaling 4.8MW — for Recurrent Energy. ProLogis currently has Uni-Solar systems installed on facilities in the U.S., Spain and France.
“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with Uni-Solar and SIT through this project,” said Drew Torbin, director of global renewable energy for ProLogis. “We look forward to working with the company closely over the next several months as we bring this project on line.”
“This new agreement is the first example of the benefits of combining our leading Uni-Solar PV laminate product with the rooftop solar expertise of Solar Integrated. This project also demonstrates how we will work closely with Recurrent Energy and our key channel partners–in this case Soprema and its dedicated subsidiary Solardis — to provide innovative solutions that meet the needs of our customers and their roofs,” said Mark Morelli, president/CEO of ECD.
The PV systems will consist of Uni-Solar laminates combined with the Soprasolar complex — a bituminous waterproofing system, and will be applied directly on the roofs. Soprema’s local installer Master Renovables will work on the installation; construction will begin on the project in October 2009.
