Projects

Below you find an overview of some of the projects we have done in the Isle of Man.

Mountain View Innovation Centre
  • Current installation of solar panels at Mountain View Innovation Centre - 64 kilowatt solar panel installation on a large commercial building.

  • Each one of the 234 solar modules is optimised by individual monitoring and controlled by two 25kW 3 phase Solar Edge inverters to align power with the islands Mains supply.

  • The system is covered by a 25 year warranty and the energy generated by the solar panels will more than payback the investment.

  • Check out the video of the panel installation below.

New Build - Solar PV, Heat Pump, Ventilation
  • 8 kilowatt solar panel installation on a new building.

  • We have also installed an Air Source Heat Pump and Whole House Heat Recovery Ventilation System into this building during 2018.

  • The client wanted to have a house that is as energy efficient as possible, an Air Permeability test has been performed at the closed stage of building work. This test did confirm where any potential energy losses were present so any rectification work could be accomplished while still easily accessible. 

  • The test also allows a confirmation of the heat calculations and ensures the building meets the energy reduction target to maintain the required Comfort Conditions.

Existing Property - Solar Panel Installation
  • 4.0 kilowatt solar panel installation on an existing property.

  • By linking these panels to a Tesla Powerwall 2 Battery, the owner could significantly reduce the energy costs of the building.

  • Use the sun light to charge the Powerwall via Solar Panels during the daytime when the building is unoccupied, and draw the stored energy from the Powerwall during the evening when the family is at home.

  • This results in a vastly reduced electricity bill and the client can save more money by selling surplus power back to the grid.

New Build - Solar PV, Heat Pump, Ventilation
  • A new build property - Struan Veg -  where the owners intention was to improve the energy efficiency of the design and install renewable technology.

  • We installed a Mitsubishi Air Source Heat Pump, Solar Panels and a twin Mechanical Heat Recovery Ventilation system.

  • Following an Air Permeability test on the building a few problems were located and after rectified by the builder should reduce the energy consumption still further.

Wind Turbine Maintenance
  • A maintenance project to ensure the continued generation of electricity.

  • As with anything mechanical, regular checks on bearings and lubrication ensures the generator will provide many years of continuous reliable power generation.

  • We are able to provide regular maintenance of both the mechanical and electrical systems.

Existing Property - Air Test
  • This is the smallest Air Permeability test we have so far undertaken for a local building company.

  • The building was only 185 cubic meters and were able to test this dwelling with our Retrotec 6000 fan and DM 32 differential meter.

  • Our Air Tightness technician is qualified to Level 1 to perform these Domestic Air Permeability Tests and issue reports and Certificates to Building Control Officers. 

  • The result for this building was under the Islands requirement of 5.0m3/m2/hr@50Pa at 4.97 which should ensure reduced energy costs when compared to similar older dwellings. 

  • Well done to Grahame Moore Builders who were the main contractors.

Commerical Air Test
  • A large commercial building for a kitchen manufacturer opening a new unit on the island required a compliance test before hand over to the client.

  • The building was in excess of the L1 4000 cubic meters limits at 9920 cubic meters, but we were able to test this Level 2 building after hiring in additional equipment.

  • Our Air Tightness technician is qualified to Level 2 to perform these commercial Air Permeability Tests and issue reports and Certificates to Building Control Officers. 

  • The result for this building was well under the Islands requirement of 7.0m3/m2/hr@50Pa at 4.46 which should ensure low energy costs with the level of insulation that was also provided by the design team.

Project 7 - Electrical Panel Switch Gear
