Silex Systems Limited (ASX: SLX) (”Silex”) is pleased to announce that wholly owned subsidiary Silex Solar Pty Ltd, in conjunction with consortium partner Todae Solar, has been awarded a contract by the Department of Parliamentary Services to install solar panels at the Australian Parliament House in Canberra.

Solar panels with a peak system capacity of around 43 kilowatts will be installed on the roof of the Senate wing and the gardener’s compound of Parliament House as part of an effort to identify and implement long term low carbon energy solutions for the building’s needs. The solar PV system will be integrated into the Parliament House building management infrastructure.

Silex CEO Dr Michael Goldsworthy said, “We are very pleased to have been selected for this project after a competitive bidding process, and excited about the opportunity to work with the Department of Parliamentary Services on this iconic project which will showcase the quality of SilexSolar’s photovoltaic technology.”

The installation commenced in April 2011 and is expected to be completed in mid 2011. The work will be carried out by SilexSolar (Principal Tenderer) and Todae Solar (System Designer and Project Manager).

Todae Solar CEO Danin Kahn said: "This is a great opportunity to showcase solar power as a technology that is going to be integral in moving towards a low carbon economy. Todae Solar is thrilled to be working with the Department of Parliamentary Services and SilexSolar on this exciting project."

The solar panels to be installed at Parliament House will utilise high performance mono-crystalline ‘SLX-series’ panels manufactured at SilexSolar’s Sydney Olympic Park (SOP) plant, which is the only integrated photovoltaic cell and solar panel manufacturing facility in Australia and one of the largest in the southern hemisphere.

The consortium will also work closely with the following organisations on the project: Solar Technology Australia, Clenergy and SMA.
