SoliTek surpassed 3 MW of glass-glass panel installations in NL
Lithuanian premium solar panel manufacturer SoliTek in cooperation with its major Dutch partner Solardarity have announced that this summer was reached a whopping total of 3,2 MW installations of frameless SoliTek glass-glass solar panels in Netherlands.
This amounts to around 11.000 frameless solar panels or at least 297 tons of pure safety glass with a hefty 660.000 solar cells inside. The majority of installations took place in residential housing with some addition of industrial buildings.
“We are very happy to work with Solardarity as trusted and experienced partner in one of the most dynamic and vital European solar markets”, – Nerijus Paulauskas, SoliTek representative says.
Marjolein van Hilten of Solardarity says the fruitful cooperation with one of a few left real European solar panel manufacturers, that SoliTek is, proves that EU manufactured premium product is growing in demand; and particularly with Dutch customers, who acknowledge, that panel fire safety, quality and durability are of highest importance.
“Fire safety is a big issue in the Netherlands, for insurance companies and end-consumers alike. Glass-glass panels have a much sought after A-level rating.
Some installers might think glass-glass are more difficult to install due to the additional weight compared to standard modules and the available mounting systems which are predominantly adapted to standard modules.
We have found good solutions for both handling the modules and mounting them. Installing glass panels can take a little more time and muscle, but the final result always pays off and the growing legions of our happy customers prove that every day. Frameless SoliTek glass-glass panels have come here to stay!” – explains CEO of Solardarity Marjolein van Hilten.
According to Nerijus of SoliTek, the coming upgrade of SoliTek production at the end of 2019 will at least double the glass-glass panel output in Vilnius, Lithuania, factory and the growing demand in Netherlands will be met.
SoliTek started Cradle to Cradle certification of its glass solar panels
As interest for environmentally sustainable solar panels grows in Europe, SoliTek has embarked on a demanding Cradle to Cradle (C2C) certification process that will approve its Vilnius manufactured glass-glass panels as totally sustainable product, meeting all the requirements of the circular economy. The company expects to complete the certification process in the middle of 2020.

SoliTek is 10. Ready for the new breakthrough!
The history of SoliTek, the largest manufacturer of solar panels in Northern Europe, has begun 10 years ago when a group of scientists from the Lithuanian industrial company BOD Group started researching solar cells together with partners in Vilnius. Realizing its immense research and production potential, BOD Group founded a solar technology company that eventually became the leading solar panel manufacturer in the Scandinavian region.
SoliTek opens most advanced 2MW bifacial solar plant in Europe
Lithuanian solar technology company SoliTek has opened In Ukraine, Dnieper region, a new generation 2 MW solar power plant, the first of its kind in Europe. Equipped with top of the line bifacial glass-glass solar panels and horizontal single-axis sun tracking system, it will generate up to 40% more electricity than a conventional solar power plant. After piloting this project this year, SoliTek plans to start installing this model in EU markets. The size of investment by Global BOD Group, owner of the SoliTek, is 2.6 million EUR.
