A solar-powered hospital in Portugal

In Guimarães , northeast of Porto, JJTOMÉ has ​​just finished equipping the hospital parking lot with photovoltaic panels. Enough to contribute to the environmental efficiency of the building.

752 m 2 of solar panels installed on parking lot shades: this is the project completed at the end of October by JJTomé at the Guimar ã es hospital. In total, the 292,545 photovoltaic modules have a power of 159 kWp. That is to say a production of 227 MWh/year of electrical energy , directly intended for the consumption of the hospital structure  ! Each year, the establishment located around fifty kilometers north-east of Porto will save more than €30,000 on its electricity bill and reduce its CO 2 emissions by more than 61 tonnes!  

Among the innovations deployed by JJTOMÉ  : the use of a carport type structure , in the parking area . This vast space already in use therefore limits developments and has no impact on the hospital’s activities. Better still, it even protects motorists from the rain and has an integrated lighting system for better visibility at night. As for the electricity produced by solar cells, it is completely clean, silent and without pollution for the environment.  

Early delivery 

“The installation also has 2 inverters of 100 kWn and 60 kWn and a monitoring system which allows the user to visualize energy production in real time ,” explains Fernando Lima, head of the sustainable development unit of JJTomé . The operator also remotely accesses the system’s historical and alarm data.  »  

For JJTOMÉ , this is a turnkey project including engineering, procurement, civil and electromechanical construction , for a budget of more than €200,000 . “The project mobilized 8 people on site, for 2 months, under the direction of the renewable energies commercial unit . The team’s motivation even made it possible to complete the project before the end date of the contract. Great pride for this project which directly contributes to the energy transition and the growth of our activity in this key sector.  »
