Description of Works: Design and installation of 50KW roof mounted PV installation on new Brewery packaging plant
Duration: November 2014 – March 2015
Hall and Woodhouse is an independent and family run brewery which started back in 1777. Their pub estate has grown to over 200 and their award-winning Badger beer can be found nationally in supermarkets and off-licenses.
Hall & Woodhouse Brewery in Blandford is under a redevelopment & modernisation programme of the Brewery and Process plant. Phase two of the development and modernisation involved a new Bottling & Packaging plant, within this phase of the works the Wessex Group carried out the complete design and installation the electrical services, including the fire alarms and renewable technologies.
On the roof of the new plant we installed a 50 KW solar array designed and 3 D modelled to produce a site wide shade analysis of the Hall & Woodhouse Brewery which identified potential generation for other roofs across the site and allowed the detailed design of the 50 KW system to maximise generation and maintain the full use of natural light internally vis the skylights.
The panels are top of the range Trina Solar 275w high efficiency modules connected to ABB trio inverters, with ABB Evo data logger to allow remote monitoring.
