Scheuten, specialists in the development and production of high-quality glass products, has been commissioned by Lakesmere Ltd.

Hampshire to supply 125 Optisol modules with a total output of around 72 kWp. In addition, Scheuten will see to the engineering, supply and fitting of the steel supporting structure.   

Scheuten Absoluut Glastechniek, Scheuten's project implementation department, will be implementing this turnkey project.

“Scheuten is always looking for new uses for our products”, says Tom van der Heijden, Project Manager Scheuten Absoluut Glastechniek. “We integrate glass and solar power to form a single, sustainable concept. This awning is the perfect example of such a concept.”
