Sheffield Interchange Turns To Solar – 09/08/13

Henry Boot Construction’s Renewables Division, Tropo, has secured a contract to deliver the first part of South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive’s (SYPTE) programme to significantly reduce carbon emissions and invest in renewable energy.

Tropo is set to install a solar PV system for SYPTE at its busy Sheffield city centre Interchange. The 22kWh system will generate almost 16,000kWh per annum and deliver CO2 savings of 8214kg.

Sheffield Interchange is the main bus station in the city and features an unusual curved roof that will enable the Tropo team to install two solar PV systems to maximise the building’s potential to create renewable energy.

Work is due to start on site in mid-August and the Sheffield Interchange will remain fully operational during the installation.

“SYPTE were not only impressed with our knowledge of the subject of renewable energy but, critically, our competency to work safely in a very busy city centre transport interchange.”
