The Project.

Peebles Water Treatment Works (WTW) – also known as Bonnycraig WTW – was originally built in 1970. After assessing a number of options and taking into account the buildings age, Scottish Water undertook a project to build a new WTW on the existing site. Key aims of the project included a focus on achieving a net zero carbon footprint and minimising the impact on the landscape, whilst enabling water service to a larger catchment area. 

Following a successful tender process, Ri Cruden were commissioned by Ross-shire Engineering to provide a Solar PV system on the roof of the new building.

We worked alongside Ross-Shire Engineering to provide a solar PV roofing system.

The Works.

We designed and installed a 80kW on-roof system comprising of 288 Trina solar panels which played a pivotal role in achieving the projects stated carbon footprint related aims. The system was designed to be capable of far exceeding the 50MWh of annual energy production that was specified by the client and will greatly reduce future electricity costs.

Ri Cruden had to deal with a Covid outbreak among key members of the on-site team, yet were still able to complete the project ahead of schedule and to the satisfaction of the client.
