Vital Energi won the contract to deliver two phases of energy improvement works for Swansea Bay University Health Board. Phase one saw them install a range of energy conservation measures across the Health Board’s estate, whilst phase two saw them design, deliver, operate and maintain the £5.7m solar farm which will supply zero carbon energy to the nearby Moriston Hospital.
Morriston Hospital became the first in Wales to develop its own full-scale solar farm as part of its comprehensive decarbonisation plan. The installation was delivered at the nearby Brynwhillach Farm, with electricity being transported to the hospital vial a 3km private wire network.
The project saw us work in partnership with the Health Board to develop the project and ensure it met their energy requirements, whilst being within budget. The final design is capable of supplying 4MW of electricity from 10,000 solar PV panels stretching across 14 hectares of land.
