Onyx Solar new project, the Viracopos-Campinas International Airport in Sao Paulo, will represent the largest project for the company in South America
Onyx Solar, world leading company in the design and manufacture of photovoltaic glass for Building Integrated Photovoltaic solutions, has been awarded a new project in Brazil by Consorcio Construtor Viracopos, general contractor of the Viracopos-Campinas International Airport in Sao Paulo.
We will be supplying the airport 4,100 units of cutting edge, semi transparent insulating photovoltaic glass to create 33 photovoltaic skylights over the roof of the new state of the art terminal of the airport.
The total photovoltaic skylight area will surpass 33,000 Sqft while the installed power will reach 117 kWp; in this sense, the new terminal which is under construction and planned to be completed by May 2014 will be benefited by the multifunctional properties offered by Onyx Solar’s photovoltaic glass: natural light, sun control, IV/IR filter, thermal & sound insulation, free energy onsite and innovative design.
With this new innovative construction, Viracopos Airport is expected to serve 15 million of passengers and become one of the largest and most modern airport of South America. Its strategic location, just sixty miles from Sao Paulo will make it a key new infrastructure to receive thousands of 2014 FIFA World Cup fans.
Consorcio Construtor Viracopos counted also on world leader NACO Netherlands Airport Consultants to win this USD 2.2 billion project which thanks to its energy efficient design and innovative approach will become a reference for others to follow.
