Abstract:
Dockweiler AG, a leading international manufacturer of stainless steel tube systems, is currently having Masdar PV thin-film based solar modules installed on the roof of its new production facilities in Neustadt-Glewe by system integrator Ralos.

Installation of the first roof mounted system made up of Masdar PV-modules

Germany | Posted on December 14th, 2009

"We are delighted that our solar modules are now being used for the first time in a roof mounted system - shortly after having equipped the first open space solar park with them. The company Ralos has been awarded the contract for planning and installing the equipment and we are hoping to work with them on future projects as well", explains Joachim Nell, COO/CMO of Masdar PV.



In order to be able to make use of the sun's rays from now on, Masdar PV thin-film solar modules are currently being installed on the flat roof of the production hall and will be connected to the local electric power grid before the end of 2009. "With our new production building we have prepared for our future expansion. Together with Masdar PV and our installed solar panels we also undertake a further step and ensure in the future the combination of entrepreneurial business with even more ecological responsibility", explains Gerhard Tegtmeyer, CEO of Dockweiler. Joachim Nell adds: "More and more companies will follow the Dockweiler example by making use of open areas and factory roofs to generate electricity using solar modules and thereby providing economic advantages for their businesses. As our thin-film PV-modules produce outstanding returns with the diffuse sunlight conditions we have here in Germany, we are expecting great future demand for our products."
