Asia’s largest Building Integrated Organic PV (BIOPV) /// Phase 1 successfully installed on Seletar Walkway /// First installation of HeliaFilm® completed in Singapore ///
Dresden, Germany – 14 September 2015 – The first phase of Heliatek’s pilot project in Singapore has been successfully completed. 30m2 of Heliafilm with an average cell efficiency of 7% have been installed within a few hours on the Seletar walkway. HeliaFilm® is fitting on the walkway roof perfectly despite its uneven-shaped aluminum top structure.
The two key features of HeliaFilm® that are demonstrated on this installation are flexibility in form, fit and function, and ease of installation.
HeliaFilm® is the core part of a larger project, which provides a test-bed platform for new sustainable, urban-fit technologies for Singapore.
The project is carried out by vTrium, Heliatek’s exclusive partner in Singapore. HeliaFilm® will be implemented on various other buildings in Jurong Town Corporation’s Cleantech Park on steel and glass using various versions of transparencies and colours.
This project is funded and supported by Jurong Town Corporation (JTC, Singapore) and SPRING (Standards, Productivity and Innovation Board, Singapore). The independent monitoring of this pilot will be performed by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS).
The findings from this project will help to create a base for the future energy mix for Singapore.
