LHW have successfully tendered and secured building infra red heat loss diagnostic inspection services for over 25 large commercial properties in the London Area.
The work will be carried out in November/December when the external temperature is lowest, and the building heating systems operational, enabling maximum identification of potential heat loss
LHW have successfully trialled an innovative way to accureately undertake Infra Red PV module testing at ground level without grading of the higher modules or bright sunlight making it hard to see the screen.
The additional height was gained by a telescopic pole, and anomaly identification gained by OLED HDMI goggles, which enable a GPS embedded visual & IR image outlining the anomaly with more granularity, clarity and bright sunlight is not an issue.
LHW have provided Due Diligence Verification to a major UK water Utility on 5 project locations to review current and projected renewable energy usage to review performance against the investment model.
The projects involved PV, wind & PV hybrids and CHP, and reviewed the performance in line with the use of system time bands which were differing for the 2 network operators the projects were located.
Working with Flying Bear Aerial, LHW have undertaken internal and external aerial imagery and video of Malmesbury Abbey, the resting place of the Saxon King Athelstone, acknowledged to be the first King of England.
The abbey is in the town centre, and use of the CAA 20 metre permission was required as within 50metres of the high street.
LHW have undertaken IV Sweep, Riso, Infra Red, Electro luminescence, and Ultra Violet testing on a range of PV systems from roof mount to ground mount. In all over 100MWp of inspection, analysis and reporting was undertaken. This included the largest roof top PV array in the UK with 24,000 PV modules, which necessitated close liaison with Network Rail and East Midlands airport.
