Network Rail, Nationwide Trial
Size: 40 kWp System
9 x Systems at various locations along the West Coast Mainline
After the successful installation and operation of the system at Eastbourne, eco-Kinetics was invited to tender for the installation of a further 9.no systems at various locations on the West Coast Mainline. Competing against many other contractors, eco-Kinetics was awarded the contract after submitting the most innovative design and proposal, with two different design solutions being approved. A bespoke non-penetrative design was put forward, this employed special fixing techniques. All sites have Webbox data loggers installed, with all data being relayed back to the O&M teams at Network rail and eco-Kinetics for analysis.
The systems will help enable Network Rail to assess the effectiveness of PV solar as a renewable energy resource and its impact on reducing carbon emissions across the rail network.
