The second phase of Heliatek's installation has been successfully completed in Singapore.
Covering the Seletar Aerospace walkway with solar film during the first phase last year, HeliaFilm® has now been installed on approximately 200m² in JTCs Cleantech Park I and II with a peak power of more than 10kW.
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. The unique technology advantages of HeliaFilm® for distributed generation of solar energy in tropical climates provide new ways for Singapore to become a green city," stated 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."
