DUBAI: PRESENTED THE INNOVATIVE PHOTOVOLTAIC CANOPY "SUNDIAL"
TOTALLY CREATED BY A SICILIAN COMPANY
PLANNED INVOLVEMENT OF YOUNG PEOPLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PROJECT
Ragusa, 11TH February, 2014 – Presented today to the "Solar Middle East" in Dubai, and immediately appreciated, the "Sundial", a project of research and innovation all made in Italy, which is the result of the collaboration between a Sicilian study of architecture and the company Cappello Alluminio from Ragusa, which has produced an innovative photovoltaic "green" canopy, applicable to car parks as well as to bus terminals.
The idea combines the technology (patented by the Sicilian group) of the photovoltaic modules "Micron", characterized by high energy performance, and the "Coversun Faldaunica" system designed for integration in architecture, in a single-span zero environmental impact steel monolith; with a luxurious design "made in Italy", it is extremely versatile and elegant.
Today at the first presentation of the project, inside the Italian pavilion of the collective ICE (Italian Trade Commission) – ANIE Confindustria, a bank of Bahrain has immediately required the creation of these canopies for the coverage of car park in a commercial center that is rising in that country, using red photovoltaic modules instead of the black ones.
We are certainly able to add this application without affect the energy efficiency of our panels. - explains Giorgio Cappello, CEO of Cappello Group - Thanks to the professionalism of our research and innovation center and to the proven experience of our company in the field of integration of photovoltaic systems in the energy efficiency of civil and industrial buildings. If the orders will confirm the goodness of the project “Sundial” - Giorgio Cappello concludes – we will involve several young people in the development of this latest evolution of our range of products”.
The project "Sundial", designed to cover parking areas, which combines efficiency, design and zero environmental impact and adopts exclusively "made in Italy" components, was designed to meet the needs of the markets of the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
Instead the more articulated application of the “Sundial”, that is intended to bus terminal, tip directly to the attention of the United Arab Emirates and the municipality of Dubai, which are very sensitive to the combination of quality and elegance and are committed to insert technological and respectful of the environment solutions in the development of urban fabric.
