RECOM Technologies and SINN Power collaborated to develop a unique Conveyor Belt PV System in Germany
Lannion, France, April 20, 2023 - RECOM Technologies leading European Bloomberg Tier 1 PV module manufacturer, announces the completion of the unique pioneering 1km Conveyor Belt PV System at a gravel plant in Bavaria in cooperation with our valuable partner SINN Power, a German based company that supplies the world with renewable energy - on land and on water.
The Conveyor Belt PV System is a unique solution where benefit from solar power is achieved without additional land usage: the PV modules are added to the existing substructure of the conveyor belt. Therefore, the installation is permit free and allows an immediate construction start. For the project, 1,760 RECOM Lion Series Bifacial Heterojunction Mono Crystalline Modules of 470 Watts were installed delivering total 850KWp total power.
This innovative solution is designed for maximum profitability, so the electrical feed-in happens directly at the conveyor belt – where the power is needed - without loss of performance. Its robust aluminum structure is built to withstand environmental forces as well as allow an easy transportation and installation.
RECOM Technologies is a France based renewable energy company with notable presence in the global solar industry. RECOM is a module, inverters, hybrid storage systems, batteries and electrical vehicle (EV) chargers manufacturer. RECOM is an innovative company integrating R&D, manufacturing and distribution.
RECOM is a leading and the only Bloomberg Tier 1 PV module manufacturer in Europe with above 2,1GW annual production capacity and with sales of over 3GW solar modules in 100 countries.
