PVflex CIGS Solar Modules Pass IEC Certifications
The firm says its flexible CIGS modules, suited to rooftops, are the first to pass the IEC61646 and 61730 certifications.
PVflex says that its flexible production-ready CIGS solar module was the first to be completely certified according to IEC61646 and 61730.
German headquartered firm PVflex Solar intends to establish further sample plants with this module type during the next few months. A large-scale technical production and a takeover to the distribution channel is planned for the second half of 2011.
PVflex develops, produces, and markets flexible photovoltaic modules for building integration. The company focuses on providing reasonable system solutions with direct adhesion of the solar modules on the roof skin without the usual substructure.
The firm has a unique, patented technology for the manufacture of flexible solar modules based on CIGS solar cells. With this procedure it is possible to produce flexible solar modules from CIGS solar cells, otherwise very sensitive to humidity, at a reasonable price. New lamination methods, developed by PVflex, assure the long-term durability of the CIGS solar modules.
