EvoEnergy mains protection

Markets: Case Studies for the Power Generation market
Application: Renewable EnergyLocation: Telford, UK

Lyreco’s drive to reduce its carbon footprint spawned an ambitious project to build the UK’s 4th largest rooftop PV installation. It commissioned EvoEnergy to install the 3.8MWp, 13,860-panel array. IPU provided mains protection, the failsafe system that protects the array from disruptions on the grid.

Challenges faced

EvoEnergy installed the UK’s largest rooftop PV installation in 2015 at Lyreco’s offices in Telford, Shropshire. The project required components that support remote monitoring due to limited accessibility at the site.

Solutions delivered

IPU were approached by EvoEnergy to provide mains protection for the installation. The ideal solution was the ComAp InteliPro Mains Protection Relay. The InteliPro offers sophisticated remote monitoring and event logging as well as frequency and loss of mains protections to safeguard both the distribution network and the generators.
