Telangana-based Visaka Industries Limited, a sustainable construction materials developer, has announced its integrated solar roof will power the Climate Lab at Anant University’s Ahmedabad campus in Gujarat. Visaka will also supply its Vnext fiber cement boards, an eco-friendly alternative to climate-damaging plywood and gypsum.
Visaka’s Atum solar roof will cover the 4,200 sq.ft area of the lab and produce 70 kW of solar power to run the lab.
As per the company, Atum solar roof is a great alternative to metal sheets, sloped RCC, or clay tiles for industrial, commercial, and residential buildings. It can generate up to 40% more power than conventional solar rooftops and has a minimum lifespan of 25 years. The roof can resist fire damage for over 2.5 hours and withstand wind speeds of 255 kmph.
“The installation requires a steel structural grid for mounting the Atum solar roof modules, accessories to anchor the Atum modules straight on the steel structure, and BOS and inverters to commission the plant based on whether it’a an on-grid or off-grid system,” stated a Visaka spokesperson.
Atum has been successfully installed across many locations in India, including Chennai (Tamil Nadu), Mumbai (Maharashtra), and Hyderabad (Telangana), and in Sharjah, UAE.
