Venlo, 09. Juli 2010 - Scheuten Solar has realised a turnkey PV-system consisting of 1,500 photovoltaic (PV) panels for "Entsorgung Herne". Besides an EPC-contract (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) an operation & maintenance contract was signed. Yesterday, the system was officially opened with the presence of local press and authorities of the city Herne.
Entsorgung Herne (founded in 1907) provides waste management and cleaning services for the city of Herne, Germany. The solar panels with a total output of over 330 kWp are installed on five different roofs with a combined roof surface of over 4000 m². Given the limitations of the structure of the roof the solar modules were installed on a lightweight aluminum support structure. The installation accounts for a reduction of 150 tons of CO2 emission. With this the installation contributes significantly to the sustainable character of Entsorgung Herne.
Scheuten Solar realized the system within two months from start to end. An aerodynamic housing around the Scheuten Solar Industrial Line modules reduces lifting forces and ensures the required structural stability of the system. Ad Verbaas, Director Project Realization: "The system was already operationally connected to the grid ahead of the time schedule. The realization ran without problems thanks to a good cooperation with Entsorgung Herne."
