Case Studies

Port of London Denton Wharf

Port of London appointed RNB Solar as principal contractor for the design and installation of a new 168kw solar installation to their Denton wharf site in late October 2023.

We was to provide a complete turnkey service comprising of structural surveying the existing roof, steel strengthening works to maximise the amount of solar panels that could be installed onto the roof area , internal decorating services and fire stopping. All scaffolding and access requirements, project management as well as the design and installation of our solar system.

Al of the above had to be managed and installed before a deadline of the 29th December 2023. With the help of some fantastic sub-contractors and the co-ordination between ourselves and the port of London we was able to complete this project a week ahead of schedule , with practical completion and UKPN witness testing completed on the 23rd December.

As of the end of February 2024 the installed system had so far produced over 10 Megawatt of energy which the clients were incredibly pleased with giving the inclement weather conditions for this time of year.

Splashes leisure Centre Gillingham

RNB was appointed to install a 164 kw flat roof installation at the splashes new build leisure centre in September 2023, with Wilmott Dixon as the main contractor.

With this being a flat roof system we had the complex issue of working out how to safely load out 23 tonnes of equipment and ballast onto the new roof area on a single day without disrupting the areas where all the solar was to be installed.

Due to this being a felt roof moving pallets of ballast and equipment once placed was not an option, so load calculations had to be made. Working closely with Wilmott Dixon, Thanet cranes and the structural designers we was able to come up with a plan that worked for all parties.

Wwith the height of this building and working throughout November and December weather was not on our side but again RNB’s team of engineers managed to get this installation completed on schedule , and the end product looks amazing.

RNB are looking forward to working on the next project with Wilmott Dixon and are currently tendering for them at present.
