A 1.02MWp commercial solar system using Solyndra’s CIGS panels has been completed by alwitra on a warehouse of Parts Europe, based in Konz, Germany. The system, according to Solyndra, is the largest in Germany that has yet used its technology and the second largest worldwide. The project covers 13,000 square metres of rooftop with Evalon waterproofing membrane and approximately 10,700 square metres of rooftop with more than 5400 Solyndra panels.
“On a rooftop of this size, Parts Europe gets strong benefits from the highly reflective Evalon waterproofing membrane and the power generation of the Solyndra solar system,” said Clemens Jargon, Solyndra’s president of EMEA and managing director, Solyndra GmbH. “alwitra’s extensive know-how on roof sealing and Solyndra’s PV system allowed them to complete the entire project in less than 10 weeks.”
The project generates 1.023MWp, or the equivalent of the annual power needed to supply 250 households.
The German commercial rooftop market is a key focus for Solyndra.
