Berlin main railway station (Berlin, Germany, 2002)

  • Type of project:
  • Integration type:
The frameless PV modules replace part of the laminated glazing of the transparent concourse of Berlin main railway station. They are mounted in lines on a steel grid. Because the structure had to follow the curve of the tracks, each module is unique in terms of angularity and dimensions – ranging between 1.5m² and 2.5m². The different angles of inclination of these practically ideally customised modules result in a connection concept based on string inverters. This not only maximises yield, but also simplifies monitoring of the system (
