World Innovation: Highly Flexible Solar Modules Open New Opportunities for Solar Energy Providers

Freystadt/Oberpfalz – One innovation from the solar equipment manufacturer, J.v.G. Thoma GmbH trumps all others, because while introducing a high-performance, long-lived module capable of operating in deserts free of potentially induced degradation, the company is also presenting the JW Flex innovation to the world, a modular development that is groundbreaking because it doesn”t require a substructure.

How is that possible? Thanks to a highly flexible approach to its construction. A polymer film envelops the silicon cells on the front and back, which makes JW Flex flexible in every direction. This module can even be mounted on crowned surfaces. Furthermore, at three kilograms per square meter, they are ultra-light.

The flexible modules provide high production in particular when the sunlight is very indirect. The spherical arrangement of the silicon is responsible for this performance. JW Flex has been developed in cooperation with the Bavarian company, Jurawatt GmbH. A variety of patents have already been registered for the new technology.

The JW Flex is as flexible in its deployment as it is simple to mount. The modules are hung using eyelets or fastened to the substrate.

The solar module manufacturer, Jurawatt, will make the JW Flex modules into a production series from January 2012. Just one month later, production will start at the Jurasolar plant in Korea. J.v.G. Thoma will however offer the manufacturing technology required for this to any interested parties that want to invest in solar energy production.
