D-Dome 6: Drone flight over 12.7 MWp project
The plant is one of the largest rooftop installations in Europe!
The PV system is located on the roof of a new logistics centre of a world-leading luxury goods company in Trecate, northern Italy. With 13.5 GWh, it generates more energy than the building itself can consume, which is why the electricity is also fed into the public grid. More than 20 million fashion items are stored on more than 162,000 m² and around 80 million items are shipped per year.
The 31,000 solar modules are securely and reliably mounted with the two-sided D-Dome 6 elevation system from K2. The system is quick and easy to assemble, already pre-assembled, equipped with a simple click mechanism and can be mounted without additional tools.
Kennew, headquartered in Bergamo, Italy, designed and installed the system using K2’s mounting system and Maxeon Solar Technologies’ solar panels. “The customer had specific requirements that could be met by the Maxeon panels. For example, they offer maximum performance on a given roof area over a long period of time, field-proven reliability, top-notch durability and a 25-year warranty on product and performance,” says Daniele Botti, managing director and co-owner of Kennew.
We are particularly pleased that this large-scale rooftop solar installation has become a reality and that companies have come together to deliver on the high-quality, sustainable vision,” said Mark Babcock, chief revenue officer at Maxeon Solar Technologies.
The logistics centre was built by Techbau.
It consists of two buildings: Building A with 60,000 m² (including approx. 1,500 m² of office space and 51 loading bays) and Building B with a total of 100,000 m² (including approx. 7,500 m² of office space and 85 loading bays).
