Save time and money with aluminium profiles 

Aluminium has the ideal properties for use in photovoltaic systems:  

  • It is sturdy yet light, so the load on roofs and other surfaces is reduced 
  • It offers click-and-plug connections and a reduced number of individual parts and components, facilitating assembly as well as disassembly, fewer work steps and labor 
  • Its corrosion resistance ensures less maintenance and a longer service life for components 

The outstanding properties of aluminium can be enhanced by various finishing or surface treatments, such as anodizing or powder coating.

More sustainable and circular  

Hydro’s aluminium profiles are infinitely recyclable and can be remelted into new profiles at our recycling facilities. By supplying your project with low-carbon and recycled aluminium, we can help you in reducing global emissions and creating a more circular economy. 

Our team of solar experts can support you with co-creation, feasibility studies, eco-design and technical assistance throughout the entire process. With our own shape optimizer, for example, we can help design your aluminium profiles in a way that they use as little material as possible.

Applications include:

  • Roof systems
  • Field systems
  • Storage systems
  • Heat sinks

Experts believe the technical lifespan of a solar panel module is around 30 years. Starting in 2045, approximately 7-8 million solar modules will be "released" every year, generating an abundance of waste. In the Netherlands, a new collaboration is aiming to reduce this amount of waste.
I grew up on the water and always wanted to sail. Being colorblind, unfortunately, meant that a professional career at sea was off the table. But I always look out at the water for inspiration. I look outside and ask myself, where is the world going? Can we use this domain for other things than ships?
Architects need to have a good understanding of how photovoltaics can be integrated into the façade to reduce the energy needs of buildings. The evolution of building-integrated photovoltaics is opening up for new ways to design the buildings we need for more sustainable cities.
