Client Background

UCS were approached by Hepple engineering to design a pv system for Northumbria's new building in the centre of Newcastle.

The Challenge

When we were given the drawings of the roof initially there was very little plant on the roof. However, a timeline video produced by the university alerted us to a lot more plant on the roof than expected!

What UCS Renewables Did

After several re-designs the final layout and required kWp was agreed.  We installed 43 x 300w Italian Peimar panels and Sunfixings east/west mounting system

The Curve, Teesside University

Working on behalf of local firm Castle Building Services, we installed 177 x 250w solar panels to generate clean, renewable energy. The panels were placed in an east-west configuration using a Renusol FS10 East/West mounting system to make use of the limited space available and ensure maximum exposure to the sun. The result is that the solar panels generate green electricity 365 days a year, providing a renewable energy source and allowing Teesside University to meet its sustainability targets.

Pulman Skoda Durham

UCS installed 80 solar panels onto the showroom’s roof. Working with Kingspan, we designed the layout of solar panels so that the array didn’t affect the integrity of the roof. We used drawings supplied by Kingspan and their standing seam brackets in the installation. The result was a roof of commercial solar panels carefully designed and installed to generate solar power for the showroom. The installation looks great and the building runs on solar energy, meaning low running costs for Pulman Skoda’s flagship showroom.
