Over the years FFM has undertaken many sustainability projects. In the last 12 months, a major solar energy collection plant was installed for one of our clients.
FFM undertook an energy audit of the entire building. The energy audit revealed a significant amount of use by a particular piece of plant equipment. In order to offset the plant’s energy usage the installation of a solar energy recovery plant was specified and modelled. A recommendation was accepted collectively by the owners and the solar energy recovery plant was installed which was directly connected to the plant’s distribution board. The system comprises of 80 panels feeding a 3 Phase, twin 20KW inverter system. The yield thus far has seen a reduction of 20% of the energy consumed from the grid. Pay back is soon to be achieved and the OC will soon enjoy the savings from this new addition to their complex.
