REC, a leading global provider of solar energy solutions, is exhibiting at the RE@SIEW Expo where clean technology and renewable companies profile their services and products during the annual week-long Singapore International Energy Week (SIEW).
At the two-day exhibition, REC will be presenting its unique and long-term peace of mind approach through its cooperation with Sika and Centroplan. In addition, visitors can look forward to the Asian debut of REC’s TwinPeak Series right here in Singapore.
Following the successful launch of its cooperation with Sika and Centroplan for the European market in June, the partnership is now extended to Singapore for the first time. With Singapore as a launch-pad in Asia Pacific, this marks a second milestone and another step forward for the three parties involved.
The global roofing industry is evolving to meet the growing demand for eco-friendly roof systems that work in conjunction with solar panel installations. As a leading solar energy solutions provider, REC is nimble in responding to industry needs. Thus, visitors to the exhibition will learn about REC’s unique offering for mounting its PID-free solar panels on a membrane roof. The system comes with a combined warranty of up to twenty years over the roof, mounting system and solar panels. With this integrated solution, REC offers its customers with peace of mind and reinforces the company’s commitment to quality at every stage of solar energy projects.
For rooftop solar systems, it is vital to ensure the installation is planned, certified and completed by professionals to uphold the waterproofing conditions and warranty of the roof. Sika AG is a world-leading developer and producer of materials for the construction industry. It has a strong focus on roofing products and systems, including flexible sheet and liquid-applied membranes, and lightweight mounting systems for solar panel installation on flat roofs covered by Sika membrane.
Centroplan GmbH specialises in roof-mounted systems, and also offers mounting systems as well as planning services for projects throughout Europe for solar panel installations on the roofs of industrial properties.
Barry Aryanasvara, Vice President for Asia Pacific at REC said, “Through our partnership with companies who have the expertise in roofing construction capabilities, REC is offering our commercial and industrial customers in Singapore with a seamless warranty that extends up to 20 years. This is double the traditional ten-year warranty period on the waterproofing. With an extended warranty, our customers can now look forward to twenty years peace of mind and be assured that their rooftops are installed with a high quality and reliable solar panel system.”
He added, “REC is also delighted to showcase our TwinPeak Series panels during the Energy Week. It reinforces our pole position as a leading global provider of solar energy solutions. Our new product offering demonstrates that REC is at the forefront of solar technology and innovation. The TwinPeak Series offers a cutting-edge solution on a polysilicon platform that can strongly compete with monocrystalline solar panels on efficiency and performance. This is essential to the rooftop solar markets.”
REC’s high-performance TwinPeak Series Solar Panels are rated up to 275 watt peak (Wp) resulting in 17% panel efficiency and targets rooftops in the growing residential, commercial, and industrial markets globally. Based on an innovative design that provides more power output per square meter, the new panel features 120 half-cut multicrystalline cells, four bus bars, passivated emitter rear cell (PERC) technology, and a split junction box. Together, these technologies enhance power output by around 10 Wp per panel.
All REC’s high quality panels are free from PID and manufactured at the company’s vertically integrated and fully automated production facility in Tuas Singapore. REC’s commitment to quality is proved by its very low products claim rate where less than 300 of the 3 million ‘made-in-Singapore’ panels are returned from the field.
REC’s made-in-Singapore solar panels are shipped to customers globally and mounted at prominent landmarks. Closer to home, the jewel of the nation, Singapore Sports Hub has installed REC’s solar panels at the national stadium. The widely-acclaimed solar installation is a flagship project for Singapore’s renewable energy sector and an international showcase of REC’s over-performing solar panels.
