King’s Cross Station illustrates the true excellence of glass laminate solar PV units, combining the very best in sustainable design, technical excellence and modern aesthetics in the redevelopment of an iconic grade 1 listed building.
Working in partnership with Sundog and in collaboration with Kier and National Rail, Romag supplied the PV panels from its factory based in Consett, County Durham, in September 2012. The £1.3 million award-winning project is now of the UK’s largest and most complex building-integrated solar PV systems. Solar PV cells are bonded to glass sheets and laminated with a layer of Tedlar to ensure weather protection; the PV cells convert sunlight directly into electricity.
As one of only a few companies in the solar market equipped to manufacture this type of PV, Romag have successfully shown our capability to integrate renewable technologies into the existing structure of a listed building.
Other examples of Romag’s solar PV technology being put to excellent use can be found in their work on the Kingsgate House and National Sporting Stadium projects.
