The Franzen Group, a façade and solar system developer, is teaming up with Odersun, whereby the solar module manufacturer’s CIGS PV modules will be integrated into Franzen’s BIPV projects. The companies intend for their partnership to enhance the use of solar technology in curtain wall type, rear-ventilated façades. Franzen Ingenieur and Montagebau will provide consulting services for the design through installation periods of the solar integrated façades while Odersun supplies its modules for existing façades systems and to individualized specifications.
“Franzen combines, when it comes to the handling of our new types of solar components, a decisive, and until now rare, combination of skills, namely experience in façade construction and in the design of solar systems,” explains Dr. Hein van der Zeeuw, CEO of Odersun. “The constructional and artistic integration of solar in buildings can only be successful when the necessary systems and the decisive experience and competence in planning and installation are combined with suitable materials.”
Odersun will be exhibiting at Intersolar Europe at Booth A3.120.
