Solarcentury has triumphed at the 8th annual British Renewable Energy Awards held in London. Solarcentury was one of four entries contesting Project of the Year, and the Blackfriars Bridge project was chosen by the judges as the winner.

The project is part of a massive upgrade of London’s Blackfriars rail station, built across the Thames in 1886, which Network Rail has been expanding. The station now sits directly on the bridge providing exits on both sides of the river.

Today Blackfriars is the world’s largest solar bridge.

Frans van den Heuvel, CEO, Solarcentury commented: “We are delighted to win the REA Project Award. The word iconic is used too freely but there is no other way to describe this project in the heart of London, crossing the Thames and in view of St Paul’s Cathedral.

“Having such a big solar PV array in the heart of London demonstrates just what architectural feats can be achieved, not just here but anywhere around the world, and we look forward to working on further challenging projects in the future.”

Solarcentury is one of the most respected solar companies in the world. Founded in 1998, the company has been around since the early days of the solar industry and has been part of the evolution that has made PV the attractive investment it is today. The company has put solar on a greater variety of sites than any other company in the industry, and has won multiple awards for product innovation.

Solarcentury is helping solar PV change our world for the better and contributes 5% of net profits every year to the charity, SolarAid, which aims to eradicate kerosene lamps from Africa by 2020.

Solarcentury has offices in the UK, Italy, The Netherlands and a growing presence in Africa and Latin America.
