The ENGIE Solution: An on-grid photo voltaic system
ENGIE Solutions installed an On-Grid (Zero Export) Photo Voltaic System at this facility. The scope consisted of installing 782.62 kWp on-grid system on the sandwich panel roofs of the school campus, covering the gymnasiums and swimming pools with four point of connection to connect the PV system to the grid.
The roof was waterproofed prior to installation. The design and engineering scope included shading analysis, simulation reports, structural and wind load calculations, issuing roof layout drawings with modules and weather station installation details.
The operation and maintenance service offering included:
- Overall system health monitoring and alert management with PV monitoring platform
- Establishing cleaning schedule
- Corrective maintenance, including but not limited to warrantee replacements
- Supply of spares and consumables
The installation was carried out in compliance with Federal Electricity and Water (FEWA) and RAK Municipality regulations and standards and the project went live in 2021.
