Case Study: Hughes Safety Showers

Green Energy Solutions for Sustainable Business


Hughes Safety Showers is a leading company in the manufacturing of safety showers around the world. They are committed to reducing their carbon footprint and have been actively seeking ways to incorporate renewable energy solutions into their operations.

The Challenge

Hughes Safety Showers faced rising energy costs and wanted to transition towards a more sustainable energy source. They were looking for a reliable, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly solution.

The Solution

After a comprehensive assessment of Hughes Safety Showers energy needs, our team
recommended the installation of a state-of-the-art commercial solar PV system. The system
was custom-designed to maximise energy production while minimising environmental impact.

Key Features of the Solar PV System

Capacity: 50 kWp

Components: High-efficiency solar panels,
advanced inverters, and robust racking system.

Location: Rooftop mounted installation were strategically chosen to optimise sun exposure.

Monitoring System: A sophisticated real-time
monitoring system was implemented to track energy production and identify any performance
issues promptly.


Energy Independence: The solar PV system now covers 45% of Hughes Safety Showers energy
needs, significantly reducing their reliance on the grid and providing long-term energy cost

Environmental Impact: The system reduces CO2 emissions by 8.6 tons annually, equivalent
to planting over 395 trees each year.

Financial Savings: Hughes Safety Showers is projected to save over £10,000 per year in energy
costs, with an estimated payback period of 5 years.

Positive Brand Image: The transition to renewable energy has garnered positive attention
from customers, stakeholders, and the community, enhancing Hughes Safety Showers reputation as an environmentally-conscious industry leader.

Maintenance and Support: Our team provides regular maintenance and performance checks to ensure the system operates at peak efficiency. A 25-year warranty covers the PV modules and a 7 year warranty covers the inverters.

KAST offers 1 year workmanship warranty as standard that can be extended to 5 years along with a yearly servicing package for peace of mind.

The implementation of the commercial solar PV system has not only met but exceeded the client’s
expectations. Cosatto’s manufacturing now stands as a shining example of sustainable business
practices, demonstrating how solar energy can be harnessed for both economic and environmental
