Thin-film solar laminate manufacturer Energy Conversion Devices (ECD) has signed an agreement with Spain-based company Endesa for the installation of 3MWp of PV laminates on the rooftops of two Coca-Cola buildings in Seville, Spain. ECD’s subsidiary United Solar Ovonic (USO) will oversee the construction of the systems, which will see Uni-Solar’s laminates bonded to a Giscosa waterproofing system.
Construction on the Endesa-owned and -managed project will begin this quarter, with completion expected in the first half of 2010.
“We are excited to partner with ECD and United Solar on our largest rooftop solar project to date,” commented Andreu Cladera, Product Manager PV of Endesa Spain. “Uni-Solar laminates are the perfect product for the type of low-load bearing rooftops that exist all over Spain. Their ability to generate more electricity per rated watt compared to other types of solar products made it easier for us to secure project financing. Additionally, Uni-Solar is easy to install, enabling us to install and activate the system in just a few months, allowing a rapid return on our initial investment.”
