Solar laminate products manufacturer Energy Conversion Devices (ECD) has signed a deal with energy company Endesa to install a photovoltaic (PV) laminates on the rooftops of two Coca-Cola Company buildings in Seville, Spain.
Endesa Spain product manager PV Andreu Cladera said that the UNI-SOLAR laminates are suitable for the low-load bearing rooftops in 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,” Cladera said.
ECD’s subsidiary United Solar Ovonic will supervise construction work at the 3MW project, which involves bonding UNI-SOLAR laminates to the Giscosa waterproofing system and directly applying them on the roofs.
Endesa, which specialises in electricity generation and distribution in the Spanish solar market, will manage and own the completed rooftop system.
Construction work is scheduled to commence by the end of the year for completion in the first half of 2010.
