Tricel is proud to announce that we have begun the installation phase of Ireland’s largest combined Heat Pump and Solar PV system.
Project: Tricel Energy Project
Dates: September 2021
In August this year, Tricel began the installation phase of Irelands largest combined Heat Pump and Solar PV system to date at our Killarney Facility. We worked closely with Enerpower on the installations who from the outset had a very clear understanding of our requirements and have shown commitment and reliability in their service.
The 775 kw Solar PV system consists of large solar arrays fitted to the rooves of 3 of the factory’s main units. Tricels Solar PV system will displace 561,000 kwh of grid electricity, reducing our carbon emissions by 182,000 kg of CO2 per annum.
Tricel has also installed a total of 3 large heat pumps to replace all kerosene boilers onsite, providing heat to five of the factory’s main units. Tricels Heat pump system will provide 684,000 kwh of heat energy, reducing our carbon emissions by 175,800 kg of CO2 per annum.
The total reduction in emissions from this combined Solar PV and Heat Pump project equates to 357,800 kg of CO2 per year which is the equivalent to the emissions saved from powering 300 houses every year. The project which was partially funded by SEAI is due for completion in early November this year.
