Case Study: Solar Farm Equipment Hire

22 May 2024

Step into the world of construction with us, as we share with you a project we just finished working on. As we dive into the details, you’ll witness firsthand the scale and impact of our equipment network. Hold onto your seats as we explore the practicalities of this renewable energy infrastructure project.

Project Scope:

The now completed project is a ground-mounted solar PV park, marking a significant achievement in renewable energy infrastructure. With a capacity of 30MW, it’s set to power nearly 8,000 households and offset nearly 10,000 tons of CO2 emissions during this year alone! This substantial contribution towards generating clean and sustainable electricity fits with the UK’s decarbonisation goals, and is set to play a vital role in the UK’s commitment to tackling climate change.

Equipment & Services:

PAL Hire played a pivotal role in supporting the construction of the project by providing a comprehensive range of equipment and services. Including, essential plant hire such as excavators, telehandlers, tracked skid steers, dumpers, and Gator UTVs in both 2-seater and 4-seater configurations. We also supplied welfare facilities like offices, canteens, and storage containers, ensuring the comfort and well-being of the construction team. Site services such as water delivery, fuel delivery, toilet empties, and waste collections were also managed by PAL Hire, which helped the managers on site streamline their logistical operations. Moreover, we took care of security on the site, by providing provision fencing, barriers, and security guards, to protect the safety of assets and personnel. On top of all of that, PAL Hire supplied various tools and generators to power the site, facilitating construction tasks and guaranteeing uninterrupted operations. We also can’t forget to mention how pleased the finance team was to receive everything conveniently bundled into a single invoice.

Completion and Success:

The successful completion of this project took approximately 12 months, with commission starting this year in 2024. From providing essential equipment and services to ensuring seamless operations during this project, we continue to demonstrate our capabilities to streamline construction projects of any scale.
