Sunways AG has received its largest individual order for building-integrated photovoltaics to date: the Konstanz-based photovoltaics specialist is supplying semitransparent design solar cells for the new US head office of pharmaceutical company Novartis. The new construction in East Hanover, New Jersey, will see the installation of the largest transparent photovoltaic roof in the USA. Rafael Viñoly from New York designed an open and transparent office building for the company's oncology division.

The innovative energy roof underlines the modern architecture of the completely glazed office complex and will be implemented by Onyx Solar/New York. What is so special about it: A special process provides the semitransparent solar cells with square cut-out openings. This leads to transparency levels of around 10 percent. The staggered arrangement of the solar cells in individually manufactured solar glass modules leads to additional transparency for daylight. The result is an aesthetic solar roof as a multifunctional solution: it not only protects against environmental influences but also uses existing surfaces for the production of renewable energy while rendering natural lighting and shading possible.

Sunways is supplying over 161,000 monocrystalline, semitransparent design solar cells (5 x 5 inch / 125 x 125 mm) for the project in East Hanover. They will be installed in 820 bespoke glass modules. The end product will be a roof area of around 2,547 square metres with a rated output of 295 kilowatts.
