SoliTek surpassed 3 MW of glass-glass panel installations in NL
Lithuanian premium solar panel manufacturer SoliTek in cooperation with its major Dutch partner Solardarity have announced that this summer was reached a whopping total of 3,2 MW installations of frameless SoliTek glass-glass solar panels in Netherlands.
This amounts to around 11.000 frameless solar panels or at least 297 tons of pure safety glass with a hefty 660.000 solar cells inside. The majority of installations took place in residential housing with some addition of industrial buildings.
“We are very happy to work with Solardarity as trusted and experienced partner in one of the most dynamic and vital European solar markets”, – Nerijus Paulauskas, SoliTek representative says.
Marjolein van Hilten of Solardarity says the fruitful cooperation with one of a few left real European solar panel manufacturers, that SoliTek is, proves that EU manufactured premium product is growing in demand; and particularly with Dutch customers, who acknowledge, that panel fire safety, quality and durability are of highest importance.
“Fire safety is a big issue in the Netherlands, for insurance companies and end-consumers alike. Glass-glass panels have a much sought after A-level rating.
Some installers might think glass-glass are more difficult to install due to the additional weight compared to standard modules and the available mounting systems which are predominantly adapted to standard modules.
We have found good solutions for both handling the modules and mounting them. Installing glass panels can take a little more time and muscle, but the final result always pays off and the growing legions of our happy customers prove that every day. Frameless SoliTek glass-glass panels have come here to stay!” – explains CEO of Solardarity Marjolein van Hilten.
According to Nerijus of SoliTek, the coming upgrade of SoliTek production at the end of 2019 will at least double the glass-glass panel output in Vilnius, Lithuania, factory and the growing demand in Netherlands will be met.
