ECD Selected for 4.8-MW Solar Project in Spain

Energy Conversion Devices Inc. (ECD) has been selected by Recurrent Energy to deliver 4.8 megawatts (MW) of solar generating systems for eight separate building rooftops at ProLogis Park Sant Boi in Barcelona and ProLogis Park Alcala in Madrid, Spain. ECD will be supplying its Uni-Solar photovoltaic (PV) laminates and providing development resources through its Solar Integrated subsidiary.

The solar power systems, development of which was announced last week, will be owned by Recurrent Energy and installed on rooftops leased by Recurrent from ProLogis, a global provider of distribution facilities.

Construction on the project is expected to start in October 2009. ProLogis, currently has Uni-Solar systems installed on facilities in the U.S., Spain and France.

“We are very pleased to continue our relationship with UNI-Solar and SIT through this project,” said Drew Torbin, director of global renewable energy for ProLogis. “We look forward to working with the company closely over the next several months as we bring this project on line.”

For this project, Solar Integrated will engineer, procure, and construct the solar PV systems totaling 4.8 megawatts for Recurrent Energy. The PV systems will consist of Uni-Solar laminates combined with the Soprasolar complex – a bituminous waterproofing system, and will be applied directly on the roofs. Installation will be done by local installer Master Renovables.
