Crane Lowers Solar Panel Structure

95% of the scaffolding to the front of the hotel has now been removed. A small amount remains to enable painting of the annex section this week, after which it will be removed. The crane in the picture is lowering the solar panel uni-fix structure to the roof in order for the solar panels to be secured and capable of withstanding high winds. The crane will return next week to install the second set of frames. Calculations from 3 physical working test 30 tube panels indicate we should be able to heat 6600 litres of water to 65 oc in the month of August at that hight and angle.
