ARMOR and MASAR Printing and Publishing have joined forces to develop flexible organic photovoltaics in the MENA region
On June 30, 2019 in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, ARMOR and Masar Printing and Publishing signed a memorandum of understanding on the creation of a future joint venture (JV) in Dubaï, United Arab Emirates.
The objective: to develop the flexible organic photovoltaic film market in the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa) in order to create a future market leader in the region. The government of Dubai is seeking to achieve installed renewable energy capacity of around 1 gigawatt per year, the equivalent of one nuclear unit.
The number of sunshine days per year in the region opens up the path for the deployment of solar energy on a massive scale. Due to limited areas in the modern cities, the transparent, ultra-thin and flexible ASCA® organic film developed by ARMOR is ideal for covering the facades of the numerous skyscrapers within the Emirate.
This deployment opportunity has been clearly identified and anticipated by the two new partners, notably within the context of the World Expo 2020 to be held in Dubai.
