Asian multinational Hanergy Mobile Energy Holding Group Co Ltd recently completed the installation of building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) modules with a total capacity of 460 kW on a building in Nanchang city.
Hanergy said Wednesday it applied 4600 units of its HanWall Oerlikon modules on the façade of a skyscraper at China Pharmaceutical International Innovation Park (PIIP) in China’s Jiangxi province. It covered 6,000 sq m (64,583 sq ft) with 100-W modules to build what is says is the country’s biggest PV glass curtain wall on a single building.
The modules will mostly produce power for the building’s indoor lighting and ventilation and air conditioning systems. According to Hanergy, demand from the grid will be substantially negligible.
