We have been working with Aldi across a number of in-store frozen and chilled food storage solutions and this is our first stand alone warehouse project for the Group. The range of composite panel technology incorporated in this project, together with the solar PV system, makes this a truly state-of-the-art warehouse structure.
Managing Director, ISD Solutions
The multi-million pound development, including warehouse, chilled food storage areas and office space totalling 52,000m², serves Aldi's growing portfolio of stores. Expected to operate 24/7, 365 days a year, the new building delivers a high performance, environmentally friendly solution, with extremely low running costs. It features a unique single envelope design by ISD Solutions and incorporates high performance insulated panels and a solar PV system from Kingspan.
The new Aldi distribution centre at Goldthorpe is one of the largest solar PV installations on a cold store facility in the UK, and we are pleased to have completed it in a relatively short time frame of less than three months. Our PV systems will significantly reduce Aldi's electricity costs on this site, ultimately contributing to their continued growth and penetration into the UK market.
Business Development Manager, Kingspan
Both the ambient and chilled areas of the warehouse feature roof mounted PV systems designed, supplied and installed by Kingspan. The 1.5MWp solar PV arrray covers a total area of 15,000m² and consists of 6,000 250Wp modules. It will provide Aldi with 1.2GWh of electricity per annum, further improving the energy performance of the building and reducing it's running costs.
