The UK’s leading short break holiday company Center Parcs looked to solar installer EvoEnergy this summer for help to improve its green credentials and cut energy costs at its Nottinghamshire headquarters.
The solution came in the form of a 200-panel, 50kWp rooftop array; completed in just one week during July by a five-man team from the UK’s leading independent PV provider.
The system is predicted to save more than 21 tonnes in CO2 consumption for Center Parcs, which operates five Villages across the UK attracting more than 1.7 million visitors per year.
It chose to install the panels on the metal roof space above its offices in New Ollerton, which had to remain fully operational throughout.
The EvoEnergy team therefore took steps to keep disturbance to a minimum during working hours, with scaffolding being erected and dismantled over the weekends and deliveries happening after 9:30am on weekdays.
Scott Roadley, commercial manager for EvoEnergy, said: “For this job we were asked to construct a large array right on top of a fully functioning working environment.
“Because of this the client’s expectations were understandably very high, that’s why they looked to us to deliver the project, confident that we could meet all of their requirements.
“From initial site surveys and project meetings through to system switch on, our on-site team worked with Center Parcs to complete a sizeable project within a tight timescale without running over budget or disturbing day-to-day operations.
”Work installing the panels directly on to the roof, using U brackets screwed into the metal, began on Monday morning and was done by Wednesday afternoon. We then finished the cabling, inverter installation and rubbish removal by Friday evening.”
