Peakfresh were expanding their production capacity. Stage 1 of the expansion consisted of relocating to a newly constructed facility and concurrently replacing some old machinery. Stage 2 was planned to occur within 24 months of relocation and involved installing additional new plant, but was pending factors out of the owner’s control.
Living Energy took the time to understand the plant and equipment to be included in the new construction and considered the lower consumption of LED lighting to be installed compared to older halogen technology in our other sites when modelling for the appropriate size.
The project which commenced in June 2018, was commissioned in September 2018, and recently completed in Q1 of 2019 with the Tesla Powerpack installation once stock was made available. This was a fantastic project to be a part of, and we look forward to the amazing results from this as time goes on.
The design component took place in early 2018 and construction begun on civil and mechanical works. The DC Installation stage of the project started August 14th, and was completed early September 2018. Hope Valley is one of several projects completed, predominantly installing all aspects of the project from DC, AC, network connection and commissioning. Living Energy was awarded the largest site of the 4MW rollout across 3 sites as well as the fourth site, a 100kW Floating Solar PV array for the Happy Valley Waste Water Treatment Facility.
