392kW, Hull, Manufacturing

Solar PV roof mount installation on a laser manufacturing facility in Yorkshire.

What was achieved

Westwood Energy installed 392kW of PV to this laser manufacturing facility in Yorkshire. Accommodating the existing 60kW installation, we were able to provide real time monitoring of both arrays, to ensure maximum uptime from the entire installation. Here we deployed SolarEdge’s Firefighter Gateway, ensuring safe and rapid DC shutdown on triggering of the buildings fire alarm system.

This system incorporates modules on both the South and North elevations. SolarEdge optimised solutions allow balanced and module level outputs on modules deployed on various elevations / orientations, making this a perfect example of their benefits. Using SolarEdge’s Designer platform we were able to confidently predict the difference in output on both elevations, giving the client reassurance of predicted yields and giving them access to twice as much roof space as first thought.

This installation wears the crown of lowest environmental impact, given it is located 50 metres from our head office!
