HeliaFilm is being rigorously tested under the tropical weather conditions of Singapore to provide new urban fit energy solutions for the ever growing cities of Asia
Heliatek has announced the successful implementation of 2nd phase of BIOPV pilot project in Singapore
Heliatek has announced that the 2nd phase of the company's large pilot installation has been successfully completed in Singapore.
According to the Heliatek their HeliaFilm is being rigorously tested under the tropical weather conditions of Singapore to provide new urban fit energy solutions for the ever growing cities of Asia
Already the largest BIOPV (Building Integrated Organic Photovoltaic) project in Asia, it has further expanded with more HeliaFilm installed on various façade and roof elements.
Covering the Seletar Aerospace walkway with solar film during the first phase last year, HeliaFilm has now been installed on approximately 200 m2 in JTC's Cleantech Park I and II with a peak power of more than 10 kWp.

The opaque organic solar film was installed on the west façade of the Cleantech I building on steel panels with 56 films of 2m length and 45 films of 3.25m length laminated into 15 glass elements.
On the Cleantech II building, 87 HeliaFilm solar films were mounted directly on glass elements.
In the third phase of this project, transparent films will be added to the installation.

Continuous monitoring is performed by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), and the gathered data again proves the unique feature of HeliaFilm i.e. its performance is stable at high temperatures and non-optimal orientations unlike conventional solar panels. The project continues until mid- 2017.
Thibaud Le Séguillon, CEO of Heliatek, said, "This pilot is a successful example how HeliaFilm can become a truly green and urban fit energy solution for sustainable city development. The unique technology advantages of HeliaFilm for distributed generationof solar energy in tropical climates provide new ways for Singapore to become a green city."
Thibaud added, "We are progressing steadily with our worldwide pilot projects towards the large industrial roll out of HeliaFilm. This Singapore project is an important milestone in this process."
Heliatek is a leader in the field of Organic Electronics Energy, holding the world record efficiency of 13.2%. Through both its leading edge material development and its proven capability for volume manufacturing, Heliatek is the first company to begin commercialization of large area OPV solar film. Its business model is to supply the custom-designed HeliaFilm® to partners in industries such as building and construction materials, automotive and light architectural structures.
