Martifer Solar, a subsidiary of Martifer SGPS, has completed the construction of a 3.5 MWp PV system on the roof of the Canal Logistics building in Brussels.
The project, which was completed for the company Orka, is the second largest PV installation to date in the region.
With an area of 49.775 m2 and 14,220 PV modules installed on fixed structures, this installation will have a production capacity of 3.15 GWh/year. It will produce equivalent energy to supply the average consumption of 920 households and will offset the emission of more than 640 tons of CO2 annually.
Martifer Solar was responsible for the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) of this photovoltaic system and also will be in charge of providing the Operation and Maintenance (O&M) services.
“This is the largest PV system installed by Martifer Solar in the Benelux region and it represents the reliability, safety and bankability of the projects and work that we have been doing in this region. The achievement of more than 140 projects built in Belgium together with our global expertise allows us to implement a new strategy to expand our Operations and Maintenance business in the Benelux region,” says Tijs Vanhoutte, Country Manager of Martifer Solar in Belgium.
“We are very satisfied with our partnership with Martifer Solar. Previously, we have collaborated several times here in Belgium and they have always exceeded our expectations. This was the main reason why we have chosen again for Martifer Solar to be responsible for this large project,” says Jan Heyse, Managing Director of Orka.
The company has been present in Belgium since 2008 and has already installed more than 140 PV projects within the country.
