Benmax Group to represent MiaSolé in Australia

Copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar cell and panel maker MiaSolé of Santa Clara, CA, USA (which was founded in 2004 and acquired by Beijing-based renewable energy firm Hanergy in December 2012) has agreed for Australia-based Benmax Group (which specializes in the design, construction, commissioning, maintenance and service of heating, ventilating, air-conditioning and refrigeration systems) to represent it in the Australian, New Zealand and Singapore markets.

Benmax Environmental (a new division of Benmax Group) provides environmental advisory and consulting services to help organizations throughout Australia and New Zealand rise to the challenge of changing environmental codes and standards.

Benmax Group will sell MiaSolé's FLEX modules, which are claimed to be the most efficient thin-film lightweight flexible modules on the market (with an energy efficiency rating of +16%).

The FLEX modules bond directly to the roof surface with a simple peel-and-stick adhesive. The low-profile FLEX module provides wind resistance and a seismic advantage over traditional rack-and-panel systems (where their higher profile increases the likelihood of damage in a hurricane or earthquake), making FLEX modules suitable for the Hawaiian and Island markets.

The adhesive approach also eliminates the need for racking and reduces labor and logistics costs, providing a 20% lower BoS (balance-of-system) cost than traditional glass solar systems, it is claimed. The FLEX-02 Series module is IEC 61646 & IEC 61730 and UL 1703 certified.

Benmax headquarters are in Queanbeyan, NSW.
