Masdar PV expands product portfolio for building integrated photovoltaic

Ichtershausen (ots) –

– New colors and transparency levels for modern façade installations
– All products of Masdar PV now have a product warranty of ten years
– The Company will be participating in the Solarexpo in Verona, Italy

Masdar PV, manufacturer of thin-film photovoltaic solutions, will
be presenting its innovative products on this year’s Solarexpo,
Verona, the international exhibition and conference for renewable
energy and distributed generation. Besides optimizing its modules for
large-scale ground mounted solar plants and industrial rooftop
installations, the Germany based company currently focuses on the
development of state-of-the-art modules for building integrated
photovoltaic (BIPV). Masdar PV will take its first appearance on the
Solarexpo this year as opportunity to present thin-film-products in
various colors and transparency levels, which make roofs and façades
not only an autonomous solar power plant, but turn them into a real
eye catcher.

At the exhibition Masdar PV will display its high quality
photovoltaic modules – which are available in sizes up to 5,7 m2 – in
different colors, offer architects a broad range of stylish roof and
façade installation designs. By scribing the modules, a special
production technology which combines fully transparent glass and
solar wavers on a single module, façades can even appear in an
elegant striped look.

„BIPV is an emerging branch within the photovoltaic industry. With
these new products we expand our portfolio, fulfilling the growing
demand for flexible and versatile applicable solar modules in this
sector“ says Dr. Matthias Peschke, COO of Masdar PV.

As Masdar PV is solely manufacturing at its German production
site, all modules are produced under the label „Made in EU“, a
criteria which renders them extremely attractive for Italian
customers. Besides this, the company doubled the product warranty on
material and workmanship for its products from five to ten years,
making them particularly reliable for long-term projects and eligible
for the Italian Conto Energia scheme. One example for the
advantageous implementation of Masdar PV modules is the solar power
plant on the roof of the „City of books“ near Milan, one of Europe’s
largest logistic centers: Masdar PV delivered thin-film modules with
a total nominal output of 3.44 MW.

Moreover, Masdar PV cooperates with renowned suppliers for
mounting systems and inverters. The company’s modules are thus
suitable for almost every application, from industrial-scale ground
mounted, flat-roof or building-integrated installations.

Come and meet us at hall 8, stand B2.1 at the Solarexpo in Verona,
Italy, May 9 – 11, 2012.
