The world’s largest thin-film power solution company, Hanergy Thin Film Power Group has announced that its US-based subsidiary, MiaSolé has recently completed Europe’s biggest flexible modules solar project in a Dutch city, Den Bosch.
As part of this ground-breaking project, 418 lightweight MiaSolé flexible modules were installed on the roof of Maaspoort Sports Center, a large sports complex, realizing approx. 125 MHh of clean energy per year.
These 418 flexible solar modules, each measuring 2.6m x 1m, were agglutinated to the Evalon roof. Evalon happens to be very environment friendly and long lasting (up to 40 years) roof membrane which is more suitable for PV solar modules compared to other roofing materials.
Notably, Hanergy’s solar solution used at the Maaspoort Sports Center in Den Bosch makes the building being labelled as the largest sustainable building with flexible modules, ensuing additional government subsidies.
Mr. Albert Lin, Senior Vice President of Hanergy Netherlands, said “We look forward to work on more significant projects with Weka and together lead the thin film solar industry. Thanks to WeKa’s unparalleled expertise in roofing materials and coatings and our synergies, this project turned out to be most effective and successful.”
MiaSolé’s FLEX-02W 370W modules weight approximately 3kg per square meter, compared to traditional crystalline silicon solar modules weight approximately 18kg per square meter. The advantage of flexible module is that it can be agglutinated directly to the roof surface with no ballast.
Flexible modules are comparable to crystalline silicon components in terms of efficiency and output and are available in different lengths and widths.
MiaSolé is a US based subsidiary of Hanergy. MiaSole products include the flexible lightweight and powerful solar cell and solar module. These MiaSole products are ideal for a variety of applications.
