Solar energy 2.0: The new generation of solar panels from Jurawatt06. June 2012 | By: Jurawatt GmbH
Bavaria’s solar module manufacturer presents exciting development trends at the Intersolar 2012 trade fair.
A platform for innovations and turntable of revolutionary product: Intersolar at Munich is the leading trade fair for the solar industry and the solar craftsmanship. Also Jurawatt, a company located in Oberpfalz region, is represented again with interesting innovations. Besides the Desert Modules, which are already in series production, Jurawatt is presenting for the first time its ultra-thin Glass/Glass modules.
Some like it hot: the Desert Modules from Jurawatt The new high temperature modules from Jurawatt are capable of tolerating temperatures up to 125 °C. In addition, the Desert Modules, as the company calls them, have the distinction of three-times longer life span than comparable modules. They are also free from PID. The Desert Module has passed stringent tests prescribed by the IEC/DIN with flying colours.
The findings were attested by TÜV Germany and the Institut National de l’Énergie Solaire (INES). What is behind the term Glass/Glass module? Conventional modules are covered on the front side by transparent glass and the rear side consists of a plastic foil. In the case of Glass/Glass modules the so-called cell matrix is located between two glass panes; a foil is not present in this case.
The aesthetic looking Glass/Glass modules are often integrated into the building construction. But they are also suitable for using as shades or as marquees. Strong, stable and safe: the plus points of “the glassy production“ by Jurawatt With their remarkably heat-resistant Desert Modules the Bavarians begin to capture already new regions worldwide. Glass/Glass modules are a logical advancement in the direction of more efficiency and more resistance to heat and humidity including extended life span.
The load is better distributed, while wind and snow loads can hardly affect these modules. Further advantages of the Generation 2.0 from Jurawatt: if till now the Glass/Glass solutions were more difficult than the conventional modules with rear side foil, then, the thin, frameless Glass/Glass module from Jurawatt with 19 kg/m2 are even lighter than the framed Glass/Foil types. Something that would be more interesting for architects and house owners: the Glass solutions put hardly any limitations to the design, neither on the dimensions, nor on the exterior shaping.
The sun of Bavaria shines for all: Jurawatt GmbH Jurawatt GmbH with its headquarters in Neumarkt in Oberpfalz is a specialist for high-performance PV modules which meet the highest of quality standards. The company focuses on Research & Development and it already has a number of patents to its credit. Patrick Thoma, the managing director, has consciously prefers Germany as its location for the production. Jurawatt provides 12 years warranty on all products.
This is supplemented by a performance guarantee for 10 years on at least 90% of the rated efficiency and a guarantee for 30 years on at least 80% of the rated efficiency. Jurawatt GmbH is a subsidiary of J.v.G. Thoma GmbH which has more than 30 years of experience in the solar power industry.
