Centrosolar will be expanding its market position into Europe with its new PV system, previously only available in Germany. Nicknamed the “Roof King”, Cenpac was developed in 2010 and Centrosolar claims it is the first standard solar system available on the market that can be installed on almost any roof.
The Cenpac complete system contains all the components necessary for the installation of a PV system. Cenpac is available in 3kWp and 5kWp models with 16 or 24 crystalline modules, respectively. The installer benefits from a minimal need for planning, a lower price in comparison with individually designed systems and logistical advantages arising from the low number of system components, all of which is promised to be delivered on one single pallet.
Centrosolar will offer the system in budding solar markets, in addition to traditional PV markets such as Italy and France. “We see great potential for standard PV systems, particularly in countries such as Slovenia and Bulgaria. The solar industry is still quite new there and installation technicians have very little experience with PV systems. Therefore, a fully pre-fitted system that takes the design work away from the installer is ideal,” explains Ralf Klein from the Centrosolar AG board of directors.
Centrosolar has nine subsidiaries in Europe and North America. Export activities in countries that do not have their own subsidiary are managed from the company's headquarters in Hamburg. The export share is over 70%.
