Solar project in the port of Amsterdam

More than 41,000 solar panels will generate sustainable energy in the Port of Amsterdam for logistics services provider CWT. Spread across five locations, the panels will together form the largest solar project in Amsterdam.

In addition to transport and sea shipping operations, CWT is active in the Port of Amsterdam in fields including storage of cocoa and coffee. In order to carry out these activities in a sustainable manner, CWT has opted to use the roofs of its buildings to generate solar power. A combined total of 41,114 solar panels will generate more than 11,000,000 kWh of green electricity.

In order to realise maximum yields from the roof surface, it has been decided to use extra powerful 300 watt peak solar panels. Once these solar panels are in operation, they will generate enough sustainable energy to supply green electricity to 3,100 households.

CWT is working with KiesZon with respect to the development, financing, realization and operation of the solar project. KiesZon previously applied for and was granted the SDE+ subsidy.
