Our team of experts at ECOsys, an ITG company, designed, supplied and installed a 115.6 kWp Photovoltaic Power Plant at Mount Lebanon Hospital in Hazmieh, Lebanon, that operates in parallel with Electricité du Liban and diesel generators.

 

Mr. Elio Zahar, Consultant Engineer indicated that ‘Mount Lebanon Hospital’s target is to reduce energy consumption via double wall construction with isolation, high efficiency glazing system, HVAC system, lighting fixtures, in addition to renewable energy systems such as PV panels.’

The provided renewable energy solution from ECOsys will reduce the hospital’s dependency on typical energy sources and gas emissions all while saving energy cost in the long run.

‘We are glad to contribute from our end in the creation of a healthier environment and secure a better quality of life for future generations’ stated ECOsys team.

The main challenge of this project was to fit the maximum of PV panels over 4 rooftops (700 m2), to yield a total energy production of 160 MWh per year with CO2 savings of 104,000 Kg.

 

The system consists of 340 x 340W monocrystalline PV panels connected to 3 grid-inverters (1 x BP 50 and 2 x BP20) centralized in the electrical room and grouped together to a totalizing panel. The output AC power cable of the totalizing panel is connected to the main load bus bar of the hospital. Moreover, a monitoring system is installed to communicate with all inverters through network cables for a proper tracking of the energy produced.
