Tropo delivers solar PV system at Amey’s Sheffield HQ – 11/02/13

Amey PV

Henry Boot Construction’s Renewables Division, Tropo, has installed a £22,000 solar PV system at the Sheffield headquarters of public service provider, Amey.

The 9.46kW system took the team three days to complete and has the potential to generate free electricity for the entire Station Road office.

At the same time, the installation will enable Amey to deliver CO2 savings of 3.368 tonnes every year.

Tropo used specialist industry software to create a system model and added site specific meteorological data to design a system which maximised the renewable energy potential of Amey’s location.

Henry Boot Construction was recently appointed by Amey to undertake a 12-week office refurbishment at a depot for their Streets Ahead highways maintenance contract in Sheffield.

Part of the scheme involved installing a PV array on the roof of the office to help minimise Amey’s carbon footprint, which was designed and installed by Tropo.

“Tropo proposed a cost saving alternative to the PV system in our original design. Installation costs of Tropo’s system were 60% of the cost of the original proposal while still providing the same output. The system also offers aesthetic advantages as it lies flat on the roof and is not visible from the ground.”
