Enovos approached logistics company Kuehne+Nagel in order to respond to the second call for tenders issued by the state, as part of the national energy and climate plan, which aims to achieve a 25% share of renewable energy by 2030.
After the roof of the Post sorting centre in Bettembourg and the buildings of Luxlait, Arthur Welter and Luxtram, the roof of Kuehne+Nagel in Contern is now home to two photovoltaic installations.
These new large-scale plants were officially inaugurated in the presence of minister of energy Claude Turmes (dei Gréng).
"I am very pleased that industry is increasingly making a constructive contribution to our national energy and climate goals. The Kühne+Nagel solar power plant, built in collaboration with Enovos, is another example of how more and more companies are participating in a concrete way in the expansion of renewable energies and are thus helping to convince even more players that photovoltaic energy is not only good for the climate, but also for the economy," said the minister.
The two photovoltaic power plants have 17,000 panels with a power of 6,300kWp, which can provide a projected annual production of 5,900MWh. This is enough energy to supply more than 1,500 homes.
"The size of our roofs was particularly suitable for such projects. Kuehne+Nagel is committed to sustainability and with its Net Zero Carbon programme, the company engages employees, partners and customers in building a greener future. We are proud to have been able to make our contribution to the energy transition," said Tobias Jerschke, managing director of Kuehne+Nagel BeLux.
