Scheuten to shed some solar power November

Solar energy provider, Scheuten Solar is looking to generate some serious leads from project developers who express the need for adopting BIPV in new buildings at this year’s Big 5 show, according to the firm.

Solar energy provider, Scheuten Solar is looking to generate some serious leads from project developers who express the need for adopting BIPV in new buildings at this year's Big 5 show, according to the firm.

The company has a solar cell manufacturing unit and an ultra-modern factory for the manufacture of Multisol modules and Optisol special modules.

In 2006 Scheuten decided, together with a German solar product manufacturer, to build its own silicon factory.

Scheuten aims to operate across the whole quality spectrum, from the silicon to the energetics stage.

The company is investing heavily in the future. Many millions are being invested in the solar cell business on the basis of revolutionary new thin film technology.

Manufacture of this thin film system is due to commence at a new factory later this year.

In initial stage Scheuten will focus on the Building Integrated PV [BIPV] activity, especially for larger-scale iconic buildings in prestigious projects. In the second stage they will develop the market for PV Modules for a wide range of applications varying from small-scale off-grid solutions to multi-MW solar farms.

According to the company, there has been an explosive growth of solar use in the global market with the Middle East market to follow shortly.

Poor awareness and acceptance of use of BIPV is restricting demand for the product at the moment.
