Todae Solar has assisted the Pullman Quay Grand Sydney at Circular Quay to add a little more sun in Sydney Harbour. The Pullman Quay Grand is known as one of Sydney’s premier hotels with its sophisticated style and arguably the best views of the Harbour.
Following in the footsteps of the Novotel at Sydney Olympic Park and the Sebel at the Hawkesbury, the Pullman Quay Grand was determined to decrease their carbon footprint and selected Todae Solar in a competitive process to install a 100kW commercial solar system.
The 100kW PV system features 350 solar panels which will produce approximately 135,000kWh per year, covering around 10.5% of their electricity bill. The system will also provide a 20 year Carbon Abatement of around 2500 tonnes.
The Pullman Quay Grand selected Todae Solar based on our experience in delivering exception results on challenging projects like Parliament House in Canberra. The challenging location of the project required extensive planning, coordination and care to complete the project within a tight deadline and with minimum disruption to the thousands of tourists visiting the beautiful harbour. The logistics of the project were extremely challenging with the structural fittings alone for the project weighing around 21 tonnes. These had to be delivered to the roof via an elevator before being carried manually up another set of stairs.
Despite additional last minute obstacles from the City of Sydney Council and extreme weather, Todae Solar completed the installation with minimum disturbance due to our extensive experience and expertise – delivering another great installation to a happy client.
The Pullman Quay Grand adds another sterling project to Todae Solar’s portfolio of commercial solar installations.
Todae Solar are very proud to have partnered and delivered such an iconic project at one of the most iconic locations not just in Sydney but Australia.
