Have you ever thought to use the sea as functional platform for the production of Solar Energy? We have General Membrane has been chosen for the research project of EU promoted by The Malta Council for Science & Technology (MCST):
Use the sea as functional platform for the production of Solar Energy
SOLAQUA – Innovative Photovoltaics on water
The project will see as main characters General Membrane and the Physic Department of Malta University that will collaborate in order to develop offshore photovoltaic installation.
In fact it’s important to consider that an photovoltaic installation of about 10MW take up more or less thirty football fields and it’s know that often in island there is not this amount of space available.
With SOLAQUA, General Membrane and the University of Malta will test the possibility to use the see as support for the production of clean energy.
General Membrane’s technical staff has design the ultra-light rafts adaptable to the wave where the PV module will be placed. The floating rafts will host the thin film photovoltaic modules General Solar PV, that will be hooked to the support thanks to the an hooking system similar to the principle of General Fix patented by General Membrane.
General Solar PV has been chosen between all the products presented for its uniqueness that make it the perfect product both for ambitious research project and for the production of clean energy on roofs.
The participation to SOLAQUA project is a further demonstration of the role of General Membrane as company with a great competence and cutting-edge products.
