The Municipal Police of Pamplona has already the ultralight solar panel of TSO

The Pamplona City Council has chosen TSO’s ultralight panel to install a photovoltaic plant for self-consumption on the new sustainable roof of the Public Safety building, where the Municipal Police is located. The project has been carried out by Construcciones Leache, S. L. with an investment of 197,169 Euros.

This construction company has provided the Public Safety building in Pamplona with a modular roof made of wood from sustainable forests, in which they are integrated 266 ultralight flexible solar panels, which are exclusive products of the Sevillian company TSO, The South Oracle.

 

         

The photovoltaic plant of about 80 kW, with an estimated production of 95 MWh per year, will cover up to 20% of the energy consumed by the building. In terms of aesthetics, TSO has guaranteed a zero-visual impact with the total integration of their ultralight panels on the new sustainable roof. This is possible thanks to the technical features of these exclusive solar panels, which are flexible, glassfree, weigh less than 5 kilos and can be customized and adapted to any surface, reducing the installation time by up to 70% compared to that used in photovoltaic installations with conventional panels.

For this project, the ultralight TSO panel selected has no profile, has its junction box on the front and is composed by 60 monocrystalline cells, giving it a maximum power of 290 watts. The photovoltaic plant is made up of 38 rows of seven panels each, all of them bonded with a special polymer along a 900 square meters surface. This roof is supported and fixed on the existing one, serving also as waterproofing and improving the thermal insulation of the building. It is a ‘2 in 1’ system called ‘plug and play’ (roof plus photovoltaic installation) connected to the building’s interior network.

The electrical connection of these panels also presents an innovative solution. It has been integrated into a smart micro-network in the same building using BeePlanet’s reused second life battery storage, V2G technology charging posts for municipal electric vehicles and micro-network control technology developed by CENER. All this action is part of the European Horizon 2020 project called Stardust, to which the Pamplona City Council is a partner.

Furthermore, the Sevillian company TSO is a pioneer in the participation of photovoltaic integration projects in surfaces, buildings or existing structures. Some examples of this are the photovoltaic solar plant integrated in the carports of the Emirates Towers parking lot in Dubai and in the façade of Tower 2 in Seville, being this latter the first architectural integration in an existing façade in Europe.

         

TSO’S REPORT IN ABC NEWSPAPER

On Saturday 21 September 2019, the newspaper ABC published in its Economy section a report about us, in which, in addition to reviewing the current situation in Spain in the photovoltaic sector, there was room for the innovative projects that TSO is carrying out.

FIRST PPA TO PRODUCE ORGANIC EGGS WITH SOLAR ENERGY

The South Oracle (TSO) is once again a pioneer in promoting self-consumption with solar energy through PPA in Spain. Despensa San Nicolas, a company from Jaen, has relied on TSO’s experience to become the first company to sign a solar PPA in the organic food sector in Spain to produce its organic eggs, characterised by their excellent quality and high nutritional value.

This company, which specialises in organic products, will install TSO’s ultralight flexible panel on the roof of its 700 m2 poultry farm. The installation will have a 10.40 kW power capacity, covering the 100% of its daytime electricity consumption. Thanks to the photovoltaic plant that will cover the roof of the organic egg farm, Despensa San Nicolas will stop emitting circa 145,000 kg of CO2 into the atmosphere within the warranty period of the plant, reducing its carbon footprint by approximately 10,000 trees.

The photovoltaic solar plant allows Despensa San Nicolas to complete its sustainable policy, which is a step forward in the environmental balance of the farm, where the birds are raised in open space conditions within an organic olive grove.

 

 

 

 

Energy efficiency and ECO20® certification (made with solar energy)

In order to testify its commitment to environmental sustainability and energy efficiency, Despensa San Nicolas will be awarded with the ECO20® seal, the only one to guarantee a 100% production with energy from the sun, which is certified by ECA Bureau Veritas.

 

Energy Efficiency seminar in Las Cabezas de San Juan, Seville

Last October 30th, TSO, The South Oracle participated in the Agro-industry efficiency seminar, held at CADE Las Cabezas de San Juan (Seville). The event was organized by Andalucía Emprende, Junta de Andalucía foundation, and has for objective raising awareness among businessmen as the urgency of taking actions for energy efficiency to meet required CO2 emissions reduction.

As, last may, in similar previous event in Estepa (Seville), TSO has newly participated in this seminar with a presentation of the energy services contracts added value by its CEO, Antonio Calo, who spoke about the existing models, defined the guaranteed savings, and their set up. Next, the CEO of TSO kept talking about the advantages for companies to take actions for energy efficiency and explained ECO20 certification seal. This quality certificate differentiates those companies powered by solar energy, making them relevant from their competitors.

TSO and Beiman CPM Aljarafe sign the first PPA contract into Spanish healthcare sector

TSO, The South Oracle, has signed the first PPA into healthcare sector with Beiman CPM Aljarafe clinic, a multidisciplinary leading center in Spain.

The clinic will have a solar plant of 41.6 kWp for instant self-consumption, which will be installed over its 200 square meter rooftop space with the ultralight flexible solar panel, exclusive of TSO.

This installation will cover 89.35% of health center’s annual electricity day hours consumption and will reduce its annual emissions of CO2 in 28.600 kg, reaching an accumulated decrease of 673.700 kg throughout its estimated useful life.

Through PPA contracts, TSO offers their customers a non-risk way of financing while it takes care of all the bureaucracy system, engineering, installation to start-up the photovoltaic solar plant. In addition, the customer fixes his electricity price for 10 years, independently to electricity market prices, and will benefit from 100% of the savings.

ECO20®: made with solar energy

Other advantages of TSO PPA contract is the seal ECO20® , which certifies that the healthcare center is powered with electricity from the sun.

Similarly, on December in 2017, The South Oracle was pioneer in the photovoltaic market with the first PPA contract into Spanish agro-food sector. The beneficiary company was Patatas Arrebola Group, a Sevillian firm, which now has an instant self-consumption solar photovoltaic plant of 41.28 kWp, with an annual production of 50,000 kWh. (It reduces 26 tons of CO2 emissions per year).

 

 

 

Dubai’s Emirates Towers join the energetic transition with TSO

The South Oracle, TSO, andalusian company leading the PV solar energy sector, will be responsible for the renewable energy supply to the Emirates Towers, a symbol of the city of Dubai. 

The solar PV plant, based on the PSFU (eArche®) technology, will be integrated on the existing carport in the towers parking, which has a capacity for about two thousand vehicles. Thanks to our PSFU, ultralight flexible solar panel, TSO transforms any surface into a solar generator without altering the existing structure.

In the same way, the Emirates Towers parking will become a photovoltaic solar power plant, with no visual impact, that will annually produce 282 KWh of green electricity. This means about 169 tonnes less CO2 emissions per year, equivalent to planting 9,400 trees. This innovative proyject, exclusively designed by TSO, is a proposal of Etihad ESCO, public company founded in 2013 by DEWA (Dubai Electricity and Water Authority). Among DEWA’s objectives is the aim to increase energy efficiency measures in Dubai, to become one of the most sustainable cities in the world.

Therefore Etihad ESCO has opted for the experience and innovation capacity of TSO, The South Oracle, reference company in the photovoltaic solar power world, and first European company to desig and develop an architectural PV integration on existing facade with its exclusive solar panel, PSFU (EArche ®). This system has converted “Tower 2” building façade, at Seville’s Torneo Business Centre, into a self-consumption solar power plant.
