North Sydney Canopy

North Sydney Coal Loader


Onyx Solar took part of the transformation of the old Coal Loader in North Sydney into the center of sustainability by the installation of customized photovoltaic glass XXL in a canopy system.

Onyx Solar has supplied 64 pieces of mono-crystalline glass with size 3100 x 1744 mm (10.17 x 5.72 ft.) and a nominal power of 626 Wp per unit. The PV glass has been installed without the frame, fixed by a spider system, which provides greater visual continuity to the canopy. Thanks to the photovoltaic colonnade, a shaded walkway area has been created, providing an enjoyable experience for visitors.

This extra-large photovoltaic glass has been customized following the clients' requirements. In that case, North Sydney Council had the objective of refurbishing an industrial park in a green platform with plants and modern architecture to produce clean energy where people could learn about sustainability in everyday life. Photovoltaic Canopy was the perfect solution to create a modern colonnade that provides shade for walking near Parramatta River and reducing the energy demand of the complex.


This project has medium cell density. There are similar canopy projects with high cell density like Mohamed V University in Morocco or La Trobe University located in Victoria (Australia).
