  • Father and Son Set for Cycle Challenge

    Gary James has taken part in various fundraising activities over the years, but now his eldest son Kieran is getting ready to join him in doing his bit for charity.

    In February 2015, the father and son duo will cycle side-by-side across the rural landscape of Myanmar in a bid to raise more money for children’s charity, the NSPCC.

    Famed for its regal history, unique culture and magnificent temples, Burma (Myanmar) remains one of the last unexplored countries in Southeast Asia. The charity challenge will take 6 days to complete, covering 420kms and journeying through many untouched parts of the country.

    Over the next few weeks Gary and Kieran will begin training for their intense bike ride which begins in former royal capital of Mandalay and will involve cycling over difficult terrains and in high temperatures.

    We look forward to seeing the photos on their return!

    For information on how to donate to the NSPCC via Gary's and Keiran's charity challenge please call Gary on 01384 404488 or email him on

  • Now Supplying 7 Strand Hard Drawn Copper Conductor for PV Array Solar Farms

    Due to changes in the EU renewable energy targets there has been a ferocious growth in the need to generate solar energy. The UK needs to increase their renewable energy by 15% by the year 2020 through PV (Photovoltaic) Array Solar Farms.

    Twenty five acres of land is approximately what is required for every 5 Megawatts (MW) generated, which can power around 1500 homes; a saving of 2150 Tonnes of CO2.

    Other benefits include:

    • The sun is utilised as a free source of energy and supplies local homes and businesses.

    • Solar Farms have little impact on the environment as there is no by product or waste generated, except during the manufacturing process.

    • Maintenance on solar farms is minimal as there are no moving components.

    Alcomet is now supporting the UK in its efforts to increase solar energy by supplying the industry with one of its key components; 7 Strand Hard Drawn Copper Conductor. Our product is approved for use on PV Array Solar Farms and it is kept in stock here in the UK. We can offer delivery next day for urgent requirements.
