Our largest solar PV installation to date is now complete.
Installation of a ground mounted 2.6 mW system has recently been handed over to United Utilities at Prescot, Merseyside; this equates to a huge 10196 modules at 255w. The site now hosts a PV array on the top of a covered drinking water reservoir, another first for the Energy team. From the outset, the project was governed by weight restrictions, due to the scheme being on top of the reservoir roof. Lightweight solutions were quickly found and the transportation of materials across the site was carried out by 6-wheelled all terrain lightweight vehicles with trailers to mindfully spread weight distribution.
The £2.5m scheme, which took 12 weeks to carry out, equates to 8.99 acres and is bordered by Knowsley Safari Park.
