Hamburg, Germany-based Centrosolar AG has signed a license agreement with Zep Solar Inc., based in San Rafael, Calif. Zep Solar provides mounting products for installing photovoltaic systems, enabling modules with a specialized Zep Groove frame to be installed quickly and easily, according to the companies.
Centrosolar will manufacture Zep-compatible modules in its own production plant in Wismar, Germany. Additionally, the companies have agreed to work in close cooperation for the development and marketing of Zep products in Europe.
As part of the agreement, the development teams of both companies have adapted Zep Solar's standard frame profile specifically for Centrosolar to make the best use of materials and to suit the requirements of European roof applications. As one of Zep Solar's European partners, Centrosolar will launch the Zep-compatible modules in Germany and other European countries.
