The installation has 57 m2 composed of 29 Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaic Glass units with a glass configuration of 4+4 mm and rear tempered glass of 6 mm. Each glass unit has 60 monocrystalline solar cells of 6”.
All PV glass modules have a 16 mm air chamber to provide additional acoustic and thermal insulation, especially important to prevent heat transfer to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature.
The installation is integrated in the main entrance of the Environmental Safety and Control Department. The Headquarter Building was designed to monitor, record and provide solutions for the city environment needs for air, water pollution and solid waste generation.
This governmental building, which belongs to the Royal Commission for Jubail and Yanbu, has a 4,000 m2 covered area and has three laboratories (wet chemistry, instrumentation and marine laboratory for testing).
Following our initiative ‘One Meter One Tree’, we have planted 57 trees in the Amazon Rainforest that will help protect the natural habitat, the restoration of the soil and local farmers.
