Campbell & Kennedy are delighted to announce that they have been awarded a contract by Natural Resources Wales (NRW) to install more than 270 solar PV panels at seven different NRW sites across Wales.
With a diverse workforce reaching almost 200 employees, Campbell & Kennedy works nationwide, providing a range of services, including industry leading solar PV installation and maintenance, for a varied range of clients.
This significant contract was awarded to the Glasgow based company after a competitive tender bid directly through Natural Resources Wales, who are the principal adviser to the Welsh Government about environmental issues in Wales.
The seven sites that will benefit from the installations are – Cross Hands, Lampeter, Llys Afon, Monmouth, Pye Corner, Clawdd Newydd and Welshpool. Once completed the project is expected to generate a total of 68,197 kWh per year and will reduce annual CO2 emissions by 41.32 tonnes for the area, contributing significantly to NRW’s plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Adrian Waddington, Energy Sales Manager for Campbell & Kennedy said:
“We are thrilled to be taking on this significant project and are looking forward to working with Natural Resources Wales to deliver clean, renewable and low-cost energy, helping contribute to reducing carbon emissions. We are also looking forward to working in a beautiful part of the country, including Conservation Areas and a Site of Special Scientific Interest”.
Paul Subacchi, Head of Business Support Services for Natural Resources Wales, said:
“One of our main goals is to ensure Wales natural resources are used responsibly and sustainably. Investing in renewable energy sources is a big step towards achieving this.
“Campbell & Kennedy have plenty of experience and a strong reputation in solar PV installation and we look forward to working with them to bring ongoing benefits to the environment and people of Wales.”
The project is likely to be completed across all sites by the end of March 2018.
