Siliken Launches an ‘International Training Plan' for PV Professionals

The training plan will include seminars which will train fitters in the design of any type of residential and industrial rooftop PV installations

Siliken has launched an ‘International Training Plan' for PV fitters and professionals to facilitate knowledge of the company's online rooftop configuration tool. This Training Plan will be implemented in 5 European countries simultaneously: Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom and Belgium. The company does not rule out extending this training initiative to other countries in which it is active.

In addition to presenting its customized energyBox PV kit, during the seminar the participants will be trained in operating the advanced online configurator, which is exclusive to Siliken. Using this configurator, fitters will be able to carry out configurations and customizations of their energyBox kit for flat and slanted rooftops, with both horizontally and vertically installed modules, and choose from more than 100 structure solutions. This way, fitters will be able to optimize and customize the energyBox PV kit for any type of rooftops, giving it great flexibility and adaptability to the conditions and regulations of each country.

With this ‘International Training Plan', the company streamlines the working methodology of interested fitters, provides support for their sales processes as well as an in-depth understanding of the high performance level of the product.

The participants have indicated that through this seminar they gained insight into the key functions of the product, focusing on its configuration flexibility and fast design to build the installation.

Siliken Online Configurator for energyBox

The Web Configurator is a free online tool exclusively designed by Siliken for its clients, the fitters. The configurator is set for running in five easy steps. First, it allows fitters to choose the country in which the installation will be carried out, together with other important parameters involved in the study of static load. Next, the type of tiles and/or roof material is selected and the dimensions of the roof entered, which automatically provides the appropriate structure components. Then the module and the type of structure are selected. Subsequently, a rooftop plan is generated, scaling the roof based on the measures entered. Then the required number of energyBoxes is calculated for the specific roof and a technical report is generated which includes the following data: general rooftop parameters, layout, list of materials, calculation procedure, assembly information, etc.

Siliken's Web Configurator puts the company in the forefront of cutting-edge innovation, adapting to the requirements of rooftop fitters. Based on studies carried out by Siliken, there is a potential demand for small industrial and residential rooftop installations, for which energyBox is the simplest and most effective solution.
