Historic building becomes carbon neutral…
Using BlueGen and Solar PV.
In the heart of Port Adelaide, a unique project has been completed, the redevelopment of the heritage listed Quins building. The redevelopment project focussed on transforming the building into a five star NABERS* energy rated building. The building was fitted out with five BlueGen® units producing 7.5 kilowatts continuously and complemented with a large array of solar photovoltaic (22 kilowatts maximum).
The Quins redevelopment is the first commercial installation utilising multiple BlueGen units to power an entire office building. Combining the five BlueGen units with Solar PV reduces the buildings carbon dioxide emissions by over 70%, with an additional benefit of Solar PV offsetting BlueGen’s emission rendering the building “carbon neutral”.
