Second solar solution installed for plastic container manufacturer Zibo Containers.
Zibo Containers is a large-scale plastic container manufacturer based in Clayville, Johannesburg, and in Kuilsriver, Cape Town. RenEnergy installed a solar PV system on behalf of SolarAfrica at both of their manufacturing facilities recently. The second installation has just been completed in Saxenburg Park, Kuilsriver.
Through their Power Purchase Agreement, the system replaces a portion of their daylight energy usage with cost-effective, renewable energy with no capital expense for Zibo Containers and improving their environmental credentials.
RenEnergy’s solar installation allows Zibo Containers to reduce its energy spend and improve its bottom line – in turn boosting profitability. Generating energy on-site ensures the facility has a supplemental supply of clean energy. The solution was engineered with state-of-the-art equipment designed specifically for the location and roof type to maximize energy yield. The building was restricted due a number of essential roof lights that could not be covered. However, with a bit of clever design, we were able to position 1450 modules onto the roof, giving Zibo Containers 529,25kWp or approximately 441.6kW AC to use throughout the year.
The installed solar PV roof array generates an estimated 793 875 kWh every year and saves an estimated 784 820 kg of C02 annually.
Johan Lund, Project Manager of Zibo Containers, said:
“RenEnergy was appointed for both our facilities in Cape Town and Johannesburg for our solar needs. RenEnergy was part of the project since day 1 and stand out from several other solar competitors.
The knowledge and expertise was not missing and they created a clear picture on the outcome of the project. RenEnergy did not give us a sales pitch; they gave solutions with data backing up every answer to our questions. They made us familiar with the unfamiliar solar opportunities that are out there today.
RenEnergy fully complied with our Health and Safety regulations, work ethics and company rules. Work was done with no interference to our production and almost went by unnoticeable. Lead times on both projects were in time with no damage to existing roof structure and with above exceptional work quality. Teams, managers and office personal were efficient, friendly and professional making working together a pleasure.
RenEnergy’s main focus was the client during the duration of the project and can say with no doubt that we will always be a client of RenEnergy.”
