In July 2011 Riomay Renewable Energies undertook the design and installation of a Solar PV system for Wire Belt, one of the UK's leading manufacturers of stainless steel conveyor belts. This is one of the largest PV installations of its kind in the south of England. The renewable energy system covers the roof of the Wire Belt factory, based in Sittingbourne.
Wire Belt's motivation was to reduce their energy costs and achieve a strong financial return on their investment, whilst at the same time making a notable improvement to the environment. Riomay designed the PV system, planned the project and installed the system. The whole project was delivered within just 4 weeks with no disruption to the company.
