Metal roofing maker Virte Solar to represent CIGS PV firm MiaSolé in Scandinavian market

Copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar cell and panel maker MiaSolé of Santa Clara, CA, USA (which was founded in 2004 and acquired by Beijing-based renewable energy firm Hanergy in December 2012) has entered into a representation agreement for Finland-based metal roofing manufacturer Virte Solar to represent it in the Scandinavia market.

Virte Solar will immediately begin shipping building-integrated solar roofing systems in the entire Scandinavia region including Norway, Sweden, Finland and Denmark. It will provide services for areas such as industrial, residential and agricultural construction, as well as renovation projects.

Virte Solar's building-integrated photovoltaic metal roofing uses MiaSolé's FLEX modules, which are claimed to be the most efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules on the market (with a module efficiency rating of 16% in production). The low weight of the module (<0.6lb/ft2) allows installation on roofs that cannot support the weight of traditional glass solar panels. MiaSolé's FLEX-02 Series module is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified.

The Virte Solar BIPV roofing product is a lightweight solution that is claimed to be virtually immune to wind and snow loads, and can be installed in locations where traditional silicon panel technology cannot be employed.
