The project is distinguish by 490 Glass-BIPV modules on it’s roof. Average output from single module is 115W. So in total there are about 56.35 kWp installed on this power plant. Bespoke appearance was achieved by tailor made bus bars which were covered with black 3M tape and become virtually invisible on completely homogeneous black modules.
This revolutionary GLASSBEL solution allows to combine PV technologies with facade glazing and bring new age in modern architecture.
