The energy generation project uses Heliatek’s organic solar film and steel applications by Kandil Steel to harvest energy.
Kandil Steel is developing new technologies for distributed energy generation due to rising energy prices and declining government subsidies. The company plans to establish the combination of its steel panels with HeliaFilm as a new product for the BIOPV market.
