Midsummer And Rollgum Corp Team Up To Bring Solar Roofs To The Iberian Peninsula


Swedish solar technology leader Midsummer and Spanish leading supplier of single-ply membrane roofing solutions Rollgum Corp have signed a letter of intent to provide solar integrated roofs to commercial customers in Spain, Portugal and Andorra.

Rollgum Corp is the official and exclusive distributor in Spain, Portugal and Andorra of Firestone Building Products, which include a range of innovative and sustainable building and roofing products. One of them is the UltraPly TPO roofing solution, a single-ply roofing membrane that is among the fastest growing commercial roofing products with unsurpassed performance and installation advantages and suitable for a wide range of building types.

With the new Midsummer-Rollgum Corp collaboration, customers on the Iberian peninsula will soon be able to install a TPO high quality membrane roof integrated with Midsummer's advanced, light weight, no perforation and flexible thin film solar panels to make the roof produce energy.

“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,” said Joan Palou, founder and manager of Rollgum Corp. “With Midsummer's thin film solar products, we can take a big step forward to offer the market the best lightweight roofing solution paired with the best solar energy technology, all in one.”

The Midsummer WAVE, BOLD and SLIM panels are global leaders in thin film technology. With their 2mm thickness, capacity to bend and extreme simplicity of installation, the products are at the top end of the spectrum of globally available solar panels.

“We are happy to partner with Rollgum Corp to offer esthetically attractive and durable thin film solar panels perfectly integrated with Rollgum's high quality membrane roofs for a huge potential market in Spain and Portugal,” said Sven Lindström, CEO, Midsummer. “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.

“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.”
