GCB Cocoa UK

GCB Cocoa, a Malaysian company expanding to the UK, approached us to design and install a bespoke solar power system. Their goal: reduce carbon emissions and energy costs for their inaugural UK manufacturing site. The project achieved significant energy output, CO2e savings, and a rapid payback period.

The client aims to reduce its carbon footprint and energy expenses, necessitating a carefully tailored solar solution.

Our team was approached directly by GCG Cocoa UK to design, build and install a solar PV system for their new factory.

The first phase of the solution involved the design and installation of a 944kWp solar power system on the factory building, utilizing 2,222 Trina 425Wp panels.

Feasibility studies were conducted to ensure the project’s smooth progression. We worked closely with the client to design and develop stage one of their PV solution.

The PV system installed, in full operation, could potentially generate maximum output of 877,862 kWh and save up to 181,782kg of CO2e annually.

Furthermore, the new factory has a positive impact on the local economy and is supporting the surrounding area offering many employment opportunities.

The benefits of the project extended beyond financial savings to encompass substantial carbon reduction.

This green initiative represented a significant step for GCB Cocoa, as it marked their first manufacturing site in the UK.

The installation was completed on time, and the client was highly satisfied with our design and installation work.

Looking ahead, GCB Cocoa UK is planning to continue growing their plans for a brighter more sustainable future.

GCB Cocoa UK is extremely pleased with the installation of solar panels at our site. We are grateful to EvoEnergy for their exceptional service and for addressing all our requirements in operating our new chocolate factory. It is wonderful to be a part of a project promoting sustainable energy and we eagerly anticipate the positive outcomes
