Product Briefing Outline: Coveme has developed a high performance PET backsheet, ‘dyMat PYE 3000,’ which is claims is able to resist over 3000h of DHT (Damp Heat Test), offering the best performance currently available on the market. The dyMat PYE range of Coveme laminates protects photovoltaic cells from humidity, atmospheric agents and chemical attacks, guaranteeing total insulation at high voltages.

Problem: The demand from solar module manufacturers for a backsheet offering an adequate protection for high performance PV modules. Due to water permeation of the outer layer, the inner PET layer suffers from hydrolysis losing its original properties.Therefore the traditional backsheets is, to a certain extent, unbalanced, having a long lasting outer layer and the inner layer suffering from early aging.

Solution: The dyMat PYE 3000 is the latest development within the well known dyMat PYE range, launched by coveme in 2008, at that time one of the first fluoropolymer free backsheets in the photovoltaic market. It effectively protects solar panels for over 25 years thanks to its superior hydrolysis and UV barrier properties. The dyMat PYE laminate is based on two layers of polyester film. The cell side is treated with a special thick primer which provides high bonding capability to EVA. The primer can be supplied in different colours and in transparent finishing. The laminate thickness has been designed to provide the best combination of properties in terms of electrical insulation and weatherability. It also forms a strong barrier to oxygen and humidity.

Applications: dyMat PYE is suitable for thin film and mono-/ polycrystalline solar modules.

Platform: All complexes of dyMat range are available on request with corona treatment on the cell side. All PYE range has high grade Pet films. Different thickness and primer colour combinations available on request. Available in customized rolls or sheets. Sizes and drills according to customer's drawings.  dyMat backsheets are UL recognized and TÜV certified IEC 60664 and in compliance with IEC 61215 and IEC 61730.

Availability: June 2010 onwards.

Utility-scale solar is evolving, shaped by higher power modules and demand for increasingly lower levelised cost of electricity (LCOE). Those trends are also changing project requirements elsewhere, with inverters capable of delivering high power density and power capacity in strong demand. In this webinar, FIMER will detail how its innovative high-power, multi-MPPT string inverter and modular conversion solution can both meet those demands and transform the utility-scale solar sector for the better.

The race is on but we need to sprint… With global climate talks fast approaching and time running out to prevent the most disastrous impacts of climate change, now is the time to act. The Summit will explore the opportunities that emerge from taking action on climate change and provide a clear pathway forward for governments, citizens and companies. Taking place just 10 days before the G20 meeting in Rome, on 30-31 of October, and in the lead up to the critical COP26 meeting in Glasgow from 31 October–12 November, this event will be instrumental in influencing ambitious global action.

The solar tracker market continues to mature at breakneck speed, with designs and component selections becoming ever-more complex in the pursuit of better project economics. But a more simplistic design could deliver a triple benefit of lower Capex, EPC and Opex costs. This webinar will set out the ideal single axis tracker design for utility-scale solar farms. The design leapfrogs from decades of experience, with a comprehensive understanding and attention to the three cost structures of Capex, EPC and Opx. Sun and Steel Solar has prototyped a single axis tracker designed to deliver up to US$0.03/W in real savings compared to existing single axis trackers on the market. That’s US$30 million for every gigawatt deployed.

The 10th edition of the famous Metallization and Interconnection Workshop, MIW2021, will take place in the Thor Central venue in Genk, Belgium, on Monday, November 15, and Tuesday, November 16, 2021 as a face-to-face meeting. We are longing for direct exchange of knowledge and ideas after a long time. Hopefully you can be part of it! But of course, the organizors will keep an eye on the evolution of the Covid pandemic. It will be assess carefully, whether the workshop can be held without major risks or excessive restrictions. We are looking forward to exciting talks, discussions and meetings and to welcoming you in Genk!
