The Solar Power Station Equipped by KG Group Starts Functioning

The solar power station belonging to KG Constructions and KG Energy was given for exploitation in June, 2013 and will soon start producing electricity. At the moment the 60 kW capacity power station equipped in Bajorai village is one of the biggest equipment of this type in Rokiskis district. The power station consists of 750 modern solar panels that distinguish with the efficiency of production and high standards of quality. The manufacturer and supplier of solar panels is “Schüco”, a German enterprise.

  Equipping the solar power station is a long-term investment, thus it is very crucial to choose proper manufacturers and suppliers of solar panels. It is not a secret that many cheap, but of doubtful quality solar panels are supplied to Lithuania. Having bought such panels, many problems will occur in future regarding their quality, reliability and efficiency, and that would require many additional investments. Accordingly, while equipping the power station we intentionally paid special attention to the technical characteristics of the solar panels, as well as reliability of their manufacturers. Advanced technologies of the manufacturing solar panels, applied by “Schüco”, as well as special attention to the quality of materials ensure optimal result. While investing in the power station, as a long-term project, we were responsibly choosing the product of good quality and a reliable manufacturer” – emphasizes the director of KG Energy Mindaugas Guzikauskas.

  The new solar power station equipped by KG Group is one more step towards using renewable resources while producing environmentally friendly electric power.  While producing electric power from local renewable sources of energy, we also add to the consolidation of Lithuanian independence of energy. 

  KG Constructions Group pays special attention to the implementation of innovations and modern technologies in its activity, as well as mastering promising spheres of business. The production of electric power from solar energy will become additional sphere of practice of KG Group, already now allowing to know future technologies and add to the development of future business models.  These are long-term investments in future and progress.

According to the General Manager of KG Constructions, it is becoming a sort of a tradition to increase the company's authorised capital each year.
"It is not the first year that the company's shareholders after considering the previous year's profit decided to use the majority of it for authorised capital increase. We are happy that shareholders position was very solid and clear - to achieve long-term goals, i.e. consistently increase the value of the company, to strengthen the financial capacity by investing the profit earned to the company itself, rather than to look for short term needs of shareholders. It is obvious that chosen strategy works. It is great to see our company's achievements in recent years, consistent and sustainable profitable growth in business at a time when many construction organizations were forced to withdraw from the market due to the prolonged economic difficulties.

We were always confident that trust of partners, customers, suppliers and insurance companies can only be gained by the long-term goal-oriented company with a solid financial and material base and valuable human resources. We consistently seek and will seek for that in the future. I have no doubt that this year’s authorised capital increase is not last one. With the five month sales growth of 22 percents compared to last year's corresponding period we feel optimistic. New opened foreign markets let us plan more sales in the future. Authorised capital was increased realizing new opportunities abroad and to further strengthen  company‘s position in aluminum and glass design and installation business "- said Linas Karžinauskas.

Kazakhstan. We plan to run the first projects in February and March of this year.

Northern and western countries. To achieve this goal, the sales department and the team of project managers are being strengthened. In February there are plans to establish a common Lithuanian-Danish company.

KG Constructions’ works at Balsiai School

On 15 October this year, the company starts to carry out works at a newly constructed Balsiai School.

The experts of UAB KG Constructions and the architect of the building Sigitas Kuncevičius’s team will design and install exterior facades, i.e. aluminium-glass constructions and ventilated facades.

The area of exterior aluminium-glass structural facades will amount to about 2,800 m2 and the area of ventilated facades will be 3,750 m2.
Balsiai School is the first educational institution in Lithuania which is being built according to the principle of cooperation between the public and the private sector, and is the first new public school constructed in Vilnius after the Restoration of Independence.

The school will be constructed according to an architectural project which encompasses the experience of north and west European countries, which are famous for high quality buildings of educational institutions. Hence the building will be able to come up to the modernity and functionality of the best foreign educational institutions.

UAB KG Constructions plans to complete the installation of aluminium-glass structural facades and ventilated facades in March 2011, and the new Balsiai School is going to welcome its first pupils in September 2011.

The KG group expands

As the KG group develops its activities rapidly, a new member is about to join the group, UAB KG Service, which will carry out renovation and repair works as regards exterior aluminium-glass and ventilated facades which have already been built and are in operation.

Over the last decade, along with the development of the construction sector in Lithuania, demand for exterior aluminium-glass constructions has grown. As works were carried out at a rapid pace, very often basic principles and logic regarding installation of exterior facades were not followed. This led to severe consequences, i.e. poor-quality and leaky facades.

During the economic crisis a lot of experts/companies in this field went bankrupt and former contractors stopped providing after-sales services for buildings. Therefore, the new member of the KG group, UAB KG Service will help to solve problems encountered by building owners who face desperate situations. The goal of the company is to provide a second life for facades.

New family member: KG Energija. Managing the Sun

The KG group has been joined by UAB KG Energija, which designs and installs innovative solar energy systems. The company will offer its customers to reduce costs and protect the environment by using solar energy.

The company has been taken over from the former shareholders UAB Statmega. This year the company is going to build an experimental power plant of up to 100 kW which will be solar energy-based and will be made of Schüco photovoltaics.

The heat emitted by the sun can be used for producing hot water and heating buildings. Research shows that the amount of solar energy which reaches Lithuania is sufficient to produce thermal energy and to apply the principles of solar architecture to new buildings and buildings undergoing renovation.
“As technology develops and demand grows, solar power systems are rapidly becoming cheaper and therefore they will soon become economically attractive in Lithuanian conditions, especially as we already have examples of successful solar energy usage in Lithuania,“ says Mindaugas Guzikauskas, head of UAB KG Energija.

According to Mr Guzikauskas, solar power usage not only helps to save 30–100 per cent of costs for heating and hot water but also protects the environment and non-renewable energy sources.

Three Ways to Use the Sun

KG Energija’s partner Schüco is one of the most successful European suppliers which offer integrated solutions to the applications of solar energy, which allow for generating energy in the form of thermal energy and electricity. Schüco offers three ways to use solar energy : 1. Thermal solar energy: heat produced by Schüco solar collectors, which is used to provide hot water and can also be used as an additional source of heating. 2. Heat pumps: they use solar heat which accumulates in the air or in the ground and they constitute, together with the solar energy system, a full heating system. 3. Photovoltaics: electricity generated directly from light energy by using Schüco photovoltaics.

“The three ways to use solar energy constitute a long-term and promising investment as oil and gas resources are decreasing and the usage is increasing. It is therefore likely that fossil energy sources will continue to become more expensive,“ observes Mindaugas Guzikauskas, head of UAB KG Constructions.

Mr Guzikauskas urges people to consider installation of solar energy systems before building or renovating their homes as hot water production only requires installing solar collectors, whereas heating has to meet certain requirements, i.e. the building has to be extremely airtight, properly oriented according to the cardinal points, it has to accumulate heat etc. Thus one must prepare for successful investment in advance.

UAB KG Constructions takes over construction works at Kaunas Arena

As the main roof constructions of Kaunas Arena are currently being built, it is time to install the exterior facade of the arena and UAB KG Constructions has been working on it since October, together with its partners UAB Schüco Lietuva, UAB Prekmeda and the architect of the building Simas-Eugenijus Miliūnas and his team.

UAB KG Constructions has designed, specially for the Kaunas Arena project, aluminium-glass construction systems, i.e. about 30 unique aluminium profiles, which meet high architectural requirements. Schüco, a supplier of aluminium profile systems, which has considerable experience in projects of such scale as regards windows and facades, has been chosen for the project. This has helped to create really high-quality and airtight aluminium-glass construction systems, which are characterised by exclusive aesthetics and design.

“We are happy that we are able to contribute our work to this unique and historic building. It is the second building in Lithuania built on an island after Trakai Castle. Furthermore, the arena marks the 600th jubilee of Kaunas municipality, and in 2011 the city will host the European Basketball Championship,” says Mindaugas Guzikauskas, construction director of UAB KG Constructions.

According to Mr Guzikauskas, the arena is distinguished by its size compared to the other arenas which have been built or are currently being built in Lithuania.

Unique forms for an exclusive building

On the Kaunas Arena project website visualisations of the exterior arena are provided. Such a facade is created with large horizontal channel profiles and terrace-windowsill aluminium profiles, which are produced specially for this project.

“These are architectural design elements of a really unique form and they can weigh up to 300 kg. These heavy profiles will be painted with a colour created by a Swiss company IGP specially for this project and it will make the building unique,” says Mindaugas Guzikauskas, construction director of UAB KG Constructions.

As for facades exposed to the sun, they will be glazed with special solar control glass units. According to Mr Guzikauskas, construction director of UAB KGC, all the glass units used in the building will be cleared glass bases. It means that particularly clear glass units will be used which are clearer than the usual clear glass units. It should be noted that all the glass units meet the Lithuanian Technical Construction Regulation safety requirements and the thermal properties of the glass units are 1.2 W/m²K.

UAB KG Constructions plans to finish facade works on 30 June 2010 and complete the Kaunas Arena project in September 2010.

• The WF70HI system has been used: a special system for exterior facades which is mounted on the outer frame profile of the construction. (WF: window system with the optical properties typical of facade profiles.  70: thickness of the window frame, i.e. a three-chamber frame with thickness of 70 mm. HI (High Insulation) means high thermal insulation properties. With this system, the heat transfer coefficient value of aluminium-glass constructions is of 1,45 W/m2K.

• The FW50+S-SG facade system for glazing terrace constructions has been used.
(FW: facade constructions. 50+:  visible outer width of the profile. S: means that imitation steel aluminium profiles are used. SG: means that a structural glazing system is used. Structural glazing means that glass units are fastened with internal fasteners and external sealing is carried out with ultraviolet radiation-resistant mastic, i.e. silicone).
