Heliatek is the world's leading manufacturer of solar films. The flexible HeliaFilm® is less than 1mm thin and is used on light-weight structures and roofs or on building façades, where the use of standard solar panels is not an option.

Heliatek is morphing from technology developer to industrial manufacturer with the support of the State of Saxony and the EU. The company is upscaling production to an industrial manufacturing tool of HeliaFilm® over the next two years.

At this time, the world's first roll-to-roll vacuum production facility for OPV – allowing for a limited capacity – is already in operation at the Dresden location.

With its upscaling, Heliatek is a perfect example of the link between research and production of high-tech innovations in Saxony.

Among other numerous awards in recent years, the World Economic Forum named Heliatek as the only German company to be a “Technology Pioneer” in 2015. In 2016, the company was awarded the GreenTec Award for its innovative vacuum roll-to-roll production process.

The visit of the EU Commissioner Oettinger has taken place as a part of events surrounding Europe Week, from May 5th to May 14th, 2017. Each year on the 9th of May, which is Europe Day, events are organized by regional governments. These call for dialogues on the subject of Europe as a whole.
