Project Focus: Derbigum installs 3MW combined BIPV commercial roofing systems in France for Lidl


Using its bitumen-based roof covering, which is integrated with ECD’s Uni-Solar flexible a-Si thin film laminates, Derbigum has installed approximately 3MW of BIPV commercial roofing systems at three logistics buildings for the supermarket chain Lidl in France. A 1.1MW system was installed at its Cambrai facility, a 1.1MW system in Vars, and 800kW at Les Arcs.

“Lidl was seeking a building-integrated solar solution that was lightweight and did not penetrate the roofing membrane,” noted Mark Morelli, ECD’s president/CEO. “Through our close partnership with Derbigum, we created and installed the right solution for Lidl.”

Derbigum had recently installed a 1.87MW BIPV roofing system at the Flanders Expo in Ghent, Belgium, using ECD’s laminate technology.
