Formed by four intersecting cylinders, soars to a height formed by four intersecting cylinders, soars to a height of twenty-eight meters (ninety-two feet).
Onyx Solar has participated in the construction of the new headquarters of this company where innovation and sustainability are priorities. The photovoltaic glass has been integrated into the form of a circular roof, with eleven circles of different diameters. In total, 446 glass units with different types of measurements have been installed.
Regular ones of 1,015x1,000 mm (3.33 x 3.28 ft) and others with a semicircular shape to complete the circles of the cover. The glass used is opaque, made of crystalline silicon, where the front of the glass is acid etch and the rear layer includes a black frit for a more homogeneous aesthetics. This skylight has a total installed power capacity of 51 kWp and generates approximately 40,638 kWh per year.
