The Chinese photovoltaic module manufacturer, which is a sponsor of the next football world cup, has said it will supply a total of 1,500 of its 245 Series modules to the stadium. They will be installed on a metal ring, which is expected to encircle the top of the 82,238-seat stadium.
Majority owner and project developer, Light ESCO will work with EDF on the installation and construction. It will also supply the photovoltaic energy generated to the State of Rio de Janeiro.
"As the global renewable energy sponsor of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Yingli is committed to helping Brazil and FIFA make it the greenest FIFA World Cup in history," commented Robert Petrina, managing director of Yingli Green Energy Americas, Inc.
