Leading UK marine equipment distributor installs 75 kW solar PV system

A newly installed PV system at the Aquafax head office reduces operating costs and provides a stable and predictable energy supply. 

Aquafax is a leading international wholesaler and distributor of marine and industrial equipment.

They specialise in distributing over 16,000 products, sourced from all over the world many of which are as sole distribution.

As part of the Aquafax continued investment programme to deliver excellent customer service, they recently moved to a new head office with central warehousing in Luton. The ongoing investment in cost reduction and efficiency improvements included the installation of a new 75.26 kW solar PV system.

The system includes Delta inverters supplied by Delta UK partner Renewable Energy Storage & Solutions Ltd (RESS) and installed by Flixborough Technologies Ltd (Flixborough).  Three Delta inverters with a total 75KVA output power were incorporated in the system. The Delta inverters were chosen for their high maximum efficiency up to 98.3% which allows for maximum energy harvest.

Aquafax Finance Director, Andrew Mason says “The system was expertly installed by Flixborough who provided a complete turnkey package. Service and support from RESS and Flixborough was excellent. We had production from our system the moment it went live.”

Aquafax head office is based centrally in Luton, with regional distribution hubs in Hamble, Middlewich (Cheshire), Wroxham (Norfolk), Plymouth and Marinac Scotland (Glasgow).

Aquafax supplies all leisure marine sectors from mobile marine engineers right through to boat builders large and small and also have a division that specialises in the inland waterways as well as many other industries.

By investing in a solar PV system, the company is able to help meet its business goals: cutting energy expenditures and strengthening its bottom line, and locking in stable energy prices for the future.
