Phoenix Solar has completed the installation of a thin-film PV plant built on the new company operations centre of Applied Materials in Singapore. This project is the largest thin-film PV application in the city, with modules covering 5.7m2.
The Phoenix Solar team used 4.8kWp of semitransparent thin-film modules along with 14.4kWp multi-crystalline modules for the project, which brings the plant’s peak output to around 400kW in total.
The thin-film modules were manufactured in Germany and China using Applied Materials’ ‘SunFab Thin Film Line.’ “At approximately 105kg and yet only 8mm thick, handling and installing these modules on the roof was a challenge. We are extremely proud of the entire project team for their innovative engineering solutions,” said Christophe Inglin, managing director of Phoenix Solar.
“The new photovoltaic system on our roof is an excellent showcase for our SunFab technology–and is accessible to anyone who visits our new Singapore Operations Centre,” commented Russel Tham, president of Applied Materials South East Asia.
