Two years after the inauguration ceremony of the first ultra high-tech production facility in Greece (Tripolis), HelioSphera is still one of the largest Thin-Film Micromorph Photovoltaic Production facilities in Europe with an annual production capacity exceeding 60MW. Being one of the biggest high-technology investments in Greece during the last years, exceeding EUR 200M, the company is aiming to the development of Greek, European and Global Photovoltaic market and to the gradual industry shift towards the cutting edge Thin-Film technology.
With the vision to provide the planet with beautiful, easy-to-access, solar power solutions of high return of investment, Micromorph Thin-Film panels of HelioSphera are suitable for all types of installations (field, roof top). Due to the product unique aesthetic integrity, HelioSphera’s panels are exceptional for BIPV installations covering all contemporary building requirements.
The equipment and expertise in production are coming from the Global Swiss technology leader Oerlikon. Using this solid technological background and in conjunction with a fully automated production line and significant economies of scale, HelioSphera contributes actively to reducing the cost of solar electricity
HelioSphera products are produced according to the highest international Quality standards and have significant advantages in comparison to conventional Solar technologies. They offer high electricity yield in low sunlight (diffuse radiation), in partial shade conditions and in high temperatures conditions, when conventional Solar technologies have significant losses or no output at all.
The state of the art production facility in Tripolis (150klm east of Athens), extends over a total area of 27.000 m2, with the production site covering 17.000 m2. The 1.500 m2 fully automated Clean Room available, critical for the high quality production, is the largest in Greece and one of the largest in Europe.
Having committed to sustainable development and to the highest standards of Corporate Social Responsibility, HelioSphera production process is total environmentally friendly ensuring that there is no use of any toxic substances whatsoever. An example towards the dedication of this commitment was the HelioSphera factory inauguration ceremony in June 2009; the first ever event held in Greece with an environmental positive energy footprint.
Being highly dedicated to Quality, HelioSphera is qualified according to the most up-to-date certifications of TUV Rheinland and also features the ISO 9001 quality management system. HelioSphera is also a full member of PV-Cycle, actively contributing to the recycling of its products, in due time. The latest achievement was the Microgenerators Certification Scheme (MCS) in May 2011, which allows HelioSphera to supply its products to the British market.
