Onyx Solar® amorphous silicon glass for the DEWA R&D Centre & Laboratory building in Dubai
Onyx Solar® is supplying 1000 sq.m. of semitransparent coloured photovoltaic glass for the construction of DEWA R&D Centre & Laboratory in Dubai.
The four façades of the DEWA R&D Centre & Laboratory building in Dubai will implement a louver system composed by Onyx Solar® amorphous silicon glass with transparency degree XXL and 6 different colours, creating a multi-coloured façade that provides a unique effect to the building. The two entrance canopies on north and west façade will also integrate Onyx Solar® semi-transparent glass to maintain visual continuity in the complete building envelope. All photovoltaic glass pieces manufactured for this project are 100% customized to fit the design requirements of the building.
