A second project will use approximately 100 sqm of the IGU products in a retrofit project located in central Sao Paulo for AMB Brasil’s own offices with such project anticipated to commence in January 2021.
The project for AMB Brasil’s offices will serve as a reference and testing site for AMB Brasil to assist it in its sales efforts and will be the first project in South America for the ClearVue products.
AMB Brasil is in discussions with Volvo and hopes to use the power generated from this site to operate a recharging station for use with Volvo’s 100% electric or hybrid vehicles at the base of the building.
