Medserv invests in first Maltese solar farm

Medserv is to invest in the installation of the first Solar Farm in Malta. The project, entrusted to ElectroFix Energy Ltd, will be completed by Q2 2014.

Medserv will be utilizing the vast roof space on their warehouses at their base in the Malta Freeport for this project. The 2.05 MWp roof-mounted solar farm will consist of a total of 8211 Photovoltaic Panels. The system will produce an average of 3420 MW hours per year, and is expected to save 2975.30 metric tons of CO2 emissions annually.

"The beauty of such an investment is that the return is not only guaranteed, but quantifiable.  Our roof space was dead space before. The solar farm has provided us with a new revenue stream as well as allows us to contribute to towards providing a more sustainable environment." said Mr Anthony Duncan, Director at Medserv plc.

"We have received tremendous support throughout the process. Being a first for Malta, there were a number of things that needed to be clarified and ironed out before we could go ahead with the project. Both the authorities and the various departments involved have been very supportive and cooperative." said Mr Duncan. "We have entrusted ElectroFix with the project as we feel they have the experience necessary to undertake a project of such magnitude."

ElectroFix have been behind some of the largest installations on the islands including the PV systems at the Malta International Airport, MCAST, Michael Attard Ltd, Foundation for Tomorrow's School project (5 new Church schools), PSA - Private Schools Association Project (13 Private Schools),  ESS, Lewis Press, Ballut Blocks, AMG Coldstores, the Ministry for Gozo, Medelec and Marks & Spencers amongst others.

The PV panels have been delivered to the Medserv base at the end of August. Works are expected to start imminently. This 2.05 MWp PV Project Malta will be a step closer in reaching its green energy targets set by the E.U.
