ClearShield® was specified on the project’s glass panels to improve each structure’s solar energy performance and increase their effectiveness.Each structure is in the shape of a tree and includes branches and twigs. However, its leaves are made from solar photo voltaic panels which are being used to produce energy for businesses on the park. Each solar ‘tree’ is an impressive twelve meters high, twelve meters in diameter and has all its glass elements protected by the ClearShield Eco-System™.
ClearShield® was applied on-site to the ‘leaves’ of the trees at Romag’s UK factory, who have produced the panels on behalf of their representative, Hermans Techniek Energy B.V. ClearShield® has been used to protect the panels from dirt and contamination which can effect light transmission and the panels’ effectiveness.
Therefore saving time and money. Glass on existing solar installations can also be renovated using the ClearShield Eco-System™ to remove contaminants on the surface. This in turn restores the installation's peak load performance to its original level. Stephen Byers, Managing Director of Ritec International, comments, “Panels treated with the ClearShield Eco-System™ resist staining and discolouration, keeping the glass surface cleaner for longer. This optimises light transmission, maximises efficiency and maintains performance for longer, as well as reduces maintenance requirements.” Ritec are delighted to have worked on this project alongside Romag on behalf of their representative, Hermans Techniek Energy B.V. and look forward to more partnerships within the solar industry.”
