Midsummer and Rollgum team on solar roofs for the Iberian peninsula

Midsummer AB of Järfälla, near Stockholm, Sweden – a provider of turnkey production lines as well as flexible, lightweight copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar panels for building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) – and Spanish single-ply membrane roofing supplier Rollgum Corp have signed a letter of intent to provide solar integrated roofs to commercial customers in Spain, Portugal and Andorra.

Rollgum is the official and exclusive distributor in Spain, Portugal and Andorra of Firestone Building Products, which include a range of sustainable building and roofing products. One of them is the UltraPly TPO roofing solution, a single-ply roofing membrane that is suitable for a wide range of building types.

Through the new collaboration, customers on the Iberian peninsula will be able to install a TPO membrane roof integrated with Midsummer’s light-weight, no-perforation and flexible thin-film solar panels.

“As the leading supplier of advanced roofing solutions in Spain and Portugal, we are always looking at new innovative solutions for our growing customer base,” says Rollgum’s founder & manager Joan Palou.

“Our range of thin-film solar panels is really the only practical solution for the many membrane roofs that cover factories, warehouses, shopping malls and other commercial buildings since traditional framed silicon panels are simply too heavy for these types of roofs,” claims Midsummer’s CEO Sven Lindström. “A building-integrated photovoltaic roof will produce electricity for cooling, heating or powering whatever operations takes place in the building in question and can also be fed into the electrical grid if not used, rendering the roof structurally, economically and environmentally sound.”
