Located atop one of one supermarket chain Delhaizes distribution centers in Zellik, Brussels, it was installed by German solar integrator U|S|E AG, along with its Belgium subsidiary Enerdeal.
The system consists of more than 17,000 of Solyndras thin film photovoltaic modules, and covers an area of 34,000 square meters. It is said to generate around 2,400 MWh of electricity annually, which should be enough to power more than 700 households.
Non-recourse financing included assistance from the Export-Import Bank of the United States and KBC Bank NV.
"We are very happy with the outcome of this project that was completed hand-in-hand with Solyndra," commented said Arnold Berens, CEO of U|S|E. "Their simple, non-penetrating, flat-mounting system allows for the maximum level of roof coverage.
"This helps companies like ours carry out quick and simple installations, reducing costs while maximizing yields per square meter a solution that keeps both building owners and their insurers happy."
