Lead by an experienced project Manager, a team of 30 installers and electricians worked on-site during the installation process, even working through the wettest December ever recorded in the UK. The panels were fitted in just three months onto a rooftop the size of 7.5 football pitches, requiring installers to often walk the equivalent of 14 miles per day manually carrying panels one at a time – each weighing around 40 lbs – from the edge of the building to the centre of the roof space; pallets of panels were lifted in turn by high-bay machinery and then manually unloaded.
Expert high-voltage electrical solutions were required from EvoEnergy for the PV system to integrate with the existing 11,000v on-site power supply, which the team handled by incorporating specially-built step-down voltage regulators into the system’s design. This solution allowed Lyreco to install a PV system much larger than initially planned.
In total, over 100 miles of cabling was used for the installation, equivalent to running a single cable from Birmingham to London.
