Midsummer signs another cooperation agreement in the Spanish market
Swedish solar technology leader Midsummer and the Spanish leading producer of sandwich panels Hiansa Panels have signed a Letter of Intent to offer customers within the industrial and agricultural sector in Spain a sandwich panel integrated with Midsummer SLIM solar panels, making the roof produce energy. This is Midsummer’s third major cooperation agreement signed on the Iberian Peninsula in a short period of time.
The cooperation between Midsummer and Hiansa Panel will offer the industrial and agricultural market in Spain a sandwich panel with an integrated solar panel. As the Midsummer SLIM solar panel only adds 3kg/m2 the solution is excellent for roofs with weight limitations or where extra wind load can be dangerous for the building – factors that often prevent the installation of conventional solar panels. The solar panel can be integrated into the sandwich panel directly in the factory, but it can also be mounted afterwards.
“Midsummer SLIM, which is usually sold integrated in standing seam metal roofs, is our most popular product in Sweden. It is very exciting to expand its area of use and integrate it into a sandwich panel for the industrial and agricultural sector. It feels particularly promising to do this in Spain, which has the strongest growth in solar energy in Europe, from 288 MW/year 2018 to a full 4680 MW/year 2019*”, said Sven Lindstöm, CEO Midsummer.
Hiansa Panel is a leading manufacturer in pre-painted steel panels for roofs and facades and offers a wide range of sandwich panel products. The company is active in Spain, Portugal, Africa and Latin America and is part of Grupo Hiemesa, a leading Spanish group of companies in the steel sector.
‘’As the solar energy market in Spain today is booming we are proud to offer a smart solution with Midsummer’s thin and flexible solar panel integrated into our sandwich panel already from the factory’’, said José Ramón Piqué, CEO at Hiansa Panel. ‘’The combination of our sandwich panels and Midsummer’s solar panels means a smooth and fast installation for the customers, making it easy to produce their own electricity on the roof’’.
