With a large number of rooms requiring power supply, cleaner and more affordable energy helps hotels reduce operational costs and their carbon footprint. So when Hotel Okura Amsterdam decided to reduce its dependency on the electricity grid, it turned to Solnet Group to install a proven solar energy system on its roof.
The solar energy system is visible from the hotel rooms. Therefore, extra attention has been paid to the design and reflections of the panels, using solar panels with very low reflectivity. Solnet previously received permission from authorities and airports to install this type of panels at airports and aircraft landing zones. For the most efficient use of roof space, a sleek design has been implemented with fully black panels (surface and frame) and an invisible mounting system, minimizing the potential for glare from the hotel rooms.
The so-called Smart Solar system incorporates power optimizers to maximize output and thus optimize efficiency. The performance of the installation can be monitored remotely through a real-time data monitoring platform. System failures or production losses are immediately identified, isolated, and downtime is minimized. This helps reduce operational and maintenance costs.
Additionally, multiple built-in safety systems ensure that the installation operates safely at all times. In the event of overvoltage, the system will automatically shut down.
An intelligent solar power plant with 900 kWp. After its completion, K-citymarket Länsikeskus was the largest solar power plant in Finland
The intelligent solar power plant with 50 kWp generates electricity for the ventilation and lighting of the Länsisatama passenger terminal
236 kWp Smart Solar Utility at the headquarters of the insurance company Ilmarinen is the largest site-specific installation in Helsinki
The panels supply 16% of the annual electricity consumption of the buildings. At peak production, the system delivers up to 60% of the current electricity consumption.
