Solgen Energy Group is pleased to announce the recent completion of 1.75 megawatts of solar capacity installed across the Federal Government’s National Broadband Network’s (NBN Co) Satellite Earth Stations (SES) and Technical Aggregation Node and Development (TAND) facilities.
NBN Co, a government-owned corporation, aims to reduce its environmental impact with the installation of several solar PV arrays as it plans to upgrade the entire Australian communication infrastructure and ensure future generations have access to high speed broadband.
Solgen carried out a detailed analysis of the preliminary and functional specifications in order to provide a comprehensive end-to-end solution for the solar PV requirements. Solgen designed two types of solar power installations across various sites for NBN Co; roof mounted solar arrays were installed for metropolitan TAND sites and ground mounted solar arrays were installed for the remotely based SES sites.
Solgen Energy Group Executive General Manager David Naismith said working with a corporation such as NBN Co to prioritise clean energy solutions sets a good example for others.
“To ensure this government initiative will provide future generations with many years of high speed broadband access, a combined 1.75MW solar power capacity was installed across the majority of NBN’s sites. A big achievement for all involved.
“Solgen’s overall approach to the design of each solar array was aimed around efficiency with respect to the proposed infrastructure and the existing topography of each site.
“We work closely with numerous international manufacturers of solar PV equipment allowing us the ability to design and procure the most suitable solar components to match the site constraints and achieve the best industry standards.”
