Food Processing Factory

Situated in Cornwall, this is a large property adjacent to Bodmin Moor, with other Factories around the UK.

The client turned to Oakapple Renewable Energy Ltd to design and deliver the solar PV system solution to reduce their energy consumption.

One of the client’s key concerns was any risk of fire, so Oakapple Renewable Energy Ltd installed a system consisting of 5330 JA Solar 265Wp panels with integral Tigo optimisers. In addition to being able to interrogate each of the panels via a web portal to constantly monitor their performance, on activation from a remote source such as the fire alarm, the Tigo unit on the panel can be deactivated to shut of the DC power at the panel.

These where mounted on to a bespoke Van Der Valk mounting system due to the nature of the roofing joints.

The 1.4M solar PV system is expected to generate 1,379,344kWh every year for the benefit of the client who will use all the power and will also produce around 800 tonnes of CO2 savings annually.
