Watch Tower Society trough Green Planet Engineering Services approach us to assist them in finding and providing solution to become energy efficient at their headquarters in Krugersdorp. The concern of limited electricity supply from municipality which have a ceiling of power supply to the client it will limited they further expansion of their operations. Considering the information provided from Watch Tower Society and Green Planet ESconsulting engineers, we complete feasibility study for the cost of implementing PV Solar solution. This process of understanding client needs and priorities lead us to the point of finalising the size and type of PV Solar system which need to be implemented to meet client criteria.
During that process, close work with our client and understanding their needs become clear that the best place for installation of the PV Solar plant is on the visitor/staff parking area. Considering all aspect of the potential applications and site specifics and further analysis of the various approaches we conclude the most valuable and effective solution for Watch Tower Society. The fact that the parking space is important part of daily operation of Watch Tower and additional advantage which Solar Car parking can provide clarify that this is the ultimate solution for our client. In addition of that the cost for Car park shade which provision is been made from the client was allocated to the project of PV Solar Car parking optimising further client overall cost for final PV Solar solution.
After appointment from the client and developer we start execution of the project and implementation of PV Solar Carport solution with total
of 45kW/peak installed DC capacity.

COMPLETION OF THE PROJECT AND COMMISSIONING OF PV SOLAR PLANT
Duration of the project was 9 weeks from start date to completion date. The team completed the installation was consisting of 1 Project manage, 1 Site manager, 5 Skilled solar installers and 5 Semi-skilled Installer/general labourers. We manage the entire project throughout all stages until final completion. Structural engineer is made all designs and necessary calculation on the structure of the PV Solar carport application. On final completion Structural Engineering Certificate was issued to our client as part of SANS regulation. All our designs and structural manufacturing are under engineering and quality control striving to provide high standards of quality on our systems to our clients and channel partners.
In result Watch Tower PV Solar Carport project provide the client with green solar power which substitute the power supply from the utility and make the client more energy independent. In addition to that the new build PV Solar Carport provide shelter and additional parking space in the premises for visitors and staff members. The overall cost for the carport structure is been optimised as PV solar plant application and car parking solution is been provide as combined result of the project. Outcome of the PV Solar system is daily generation of power in the region of 200kW/h depending of the weather conditions. This is providing Solar Energy for the operation of the Watch Tower Headquarters facility. Phase 2 of the project is provisioned for future expansion of the PV Solar Carport following
the success of the first initial phase.
All PV Solar applications required variety of structural systems to be designed, manufacture, supply and installed. We as a specialist in this niche understand the need of availability and quality of that component as part of the PV Solar systems. Our focus is to provide quality solution and support for variety of structural application with full spectrum of innovative and standard application for our clients and channel partners. Our goal is to provide the best solution to the client based on his needs, site specifics and cost of the project. VALSA will continuously providing support and technical guidance to our
clients in the field where our expertise lie.
