Krannich Solar and renewable energy specialists Ecofirst have recently completed the installation of a 50kw photovoltaic solar array at the new BBC Wales studios.
Located in Roath Basin, the new studios and roof are an integral part of the redevelopment and regeneration of the Cardiff Docks area and will be the new primary filming location for the popular Doctor Who series!
We worked alongside Krannich Solar to install more than 200 SunTech panels and three SMA inverters over a two-week period, the system was commissioned by nPower Energy Services.
Commenting on the completion of the project, Aidan Morris Managing Director of Ecofirst said, “The new studios have sustainability at their core. From the initial design concepts through to final installation, timing was critical as filming is due to start at the new studios at the beginning of September. We have worked with Krannich Solar on a number of projects and knew they had the capability to deliver on both product and price.”
Juan Romera-Wade, Chief Executive Officer of Krannich Solar UK, added, “Contractors and architects are increasingly receiving briefs for projects that demand a high environmental standard and the installation of PV systems are essential to achieving this. With a wide network of engineers and sales advisors available we have the infrastructure and capability to deliver this and are delighted to be part of such an important project in an area of Cardiff that is now in the process of huge regeneration.”
The solar arrays 50kw capacity means it should qualify for the higher level of feed-in tariff incentives offered by the government, allowing the BBC to avoid the cuts to incentives that have, from this month, been imposed on new installations with over 50kW of capacity
