Fresenius Medical Care is a leading provider of products and services to those affected by chronic kidney failure. As part of a firm focus on environmental sustainability, Fresenius recently undertook an initiative to implement a sustainable energy solution that could transform its operations to generate long-term electricity savings and support its sustainability goals. 

Risen Energy Australia’s trusted solar partner, Solar Galaxy, worked closely with Fresenius Medical Care Australia to ensure it was given the best solution possible. A thorough analysis of its current electricity use, operations and long-term goals were reviewed by a Solar Galaxy expert and a 290kW system was recommended for Fresenius’ Smithfield factory. 

For the system, Fresenius specifically requested Risen Energy’s solar panels to which Solar Galaxy then recommended the best panel usage and system setup. Risen Energy’s 540W Panels were suggested, as they are suited to the commercial and large scale/utility market. The panels come with an industry leading lowest thermal coefficient of power, low irradiance performance and a 12 years product warranty. 

Solar Galaxy’s Marketing and Sales Manager said that the company prioritises quality above all else, and that because Risen Energy’s brand mission goes hand-in-hand with Solar Galaxy’s, they have formed a strong partnership. 

The system was completed with the install of 537 Risen Energy Titan 540W panels paired with Sungrow Inverters, the system is set to provide 84 per cent of Fresenius Medical Care Australia’s energy needs, as well as:

  • Reduce yearly CO₂ emissions by 342t per year
  • Reduce grid consumption by 52 per cent
  • Provide $3.6 million in lifetime system savings

Currently, the system is providing more energy than required at its Smithfield factory facility, allowing Fresenius the option to contribute clean energy back to the grid as well as the flexibility to expand its operations operating within its current renewable energy system. 

Solar Galaxy is committed to providing ongoing support, ensuring that clients like Fresenius Medical Care receive continuous assistance beyond the installation phase. This dedication, paired with Risen Energy’s outstanding team which is readily accessible for inquiries and support, ensures a reliable and enduring solar solution.

“Dealing with the Risen Energy team is such a pleasant experience, from sales to marketing to operations and even technical. If you ever have a problem, Risen is easy to speak to and easy to get in touch with.”
