Fusion designed a renewable solar 40kW PV system to be installed on a flat roof on top of a seven-storey building for West London Properties.
The main challenge of the project was the requirement to use a non-penetrating system in which the solar panels were not attached to the roof, as damage to the roof material would void its warranty.
Our solution was to weigh down the PV system, calculating the weight required to stand up to wind speed while also allowing for snow load. We used 9 tonnes of ballast to secure the system, designed and arranged to evenly spread weight across the entire roof space.
The outcome was the installation of the maximum solar PV system, providing renewable energy back into the building and achieving the qualifying BREEAM target for West London Properties.
