Construction of the UK’s largest solar carport at the site of Bentley Motors’ Crewe headquarters has been completed. 

The 2.7MW facility is now being completely utilised after Cambridge-based carport specialist Flexisolar completed the project. 

Solar Power Portal first broke news of the project in November 2016 when it entered planning, and Flexisolar was appointed to conduct the installation of the project before work started in April last year.

Around 10,000 panels now cover 27 separate rows of parking at the Cheshire manufacturing facility, and work was completed in sections in order to allow Bentley to use large areas of the car park during installation.

Robert Carpenter, interim managing director at Flexisolar, praised his design and installation teams in delivering the solution.
