Already the largest BIOPV (building integrated organic photovoltaic) project in Asia, it has further expanded with more HeliaFilm installed on various façade and roof elements.
Covering the Seletar Aerospace walkway with solar film during the first phase last year, HeliaFilm has now been installed on approximately 200 square meters in JTC’s Cleantech Park I and II with a peak power of more than 10 kWp.
The opaque organic solar film was installed on the west façade of the Cleantech I building on steel panels with 56 films of 2 meter length and 45 films of 3.25 meter length laminated into 15 glass elements. On the Cleantech II building, 87 HeliaFilm solar films were mounted directly on glass elements. In the third phase of this project, transparent films will be added to the installation.
Continuous monitoring is performed by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS). The project continues until mid- 2017.
“This pilot is a successful example how HeliaFilm can become a truly green and urban fit energy solution for sustainable city development,” said Thibaud Le Séguillon, CEO of Heliatek. “We are progressing steadily with our worldwide pilot projects towards the large industrial roll out of HeliaFilm. This Singapore project is an important milestone in this process.”
