HeliaFilm® - a truly green technology for an urban-fit distributed energy solution in Singapore

The second phase of Heliatek’s large pilot installation has been successfully completed in Singapore.

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 JTCs 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 2-meter-length and 45 films of 3.25-meter-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.

“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 generation of solar energy in tropical climates provide new ways for Singapore to become a green city,” stated Thibaud Le Séguillon, CEO of Heliatek. “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.”
