The solar power system is expected to reduce the terminal’s annual power consumption by around 14,000 kWh (kilowatts per hour). Once tested, the project will be implemented on a larger scale, contributing greatly towards a more sustainable energy portfolio and reducing the site’s carbon footprint.
The solar system has a capacity of 3,000 watts and has been set up with photovoltaic panels on the engineering workshop roof at the terminal. Various areas within the terminal such as the engineering offices, stores, locker rooms and sections of the workshop will no longer be dependent on purchased grid electricity. The system is designed to provide uninterrupted electricity supply.
