SolarBK greening out logistics industry

Monday, 22/05/2017
Vietnam’s first solar-powered green logistics centre, Tan Cang-Song Than ICD, is slated for completion in September 2017 and is expected to contribute to the sustainable development trend in the domestic logistics industry.

Solar ESCO JSC, a member of Vietnamese renewable energy firm SolarBK, and Tan Cang-Song Than ICD signed the contract to lease the solar system to ICD Song Than Logistics Center in the southern province of Binh Duong, with a total capacity of 500.96 kWp.

Under the agreement, Solar ESCO JSC would invest in the solar power system being installed by SolarBK at Tan Cang-Song Than ICD.

This solar-powered model is not only economical but also contributes to environmental protection, helping to reduce CO2 emissions by 518.5 tonnes a year.

Nguyen Thanh Son, director of Tan Cang-Song Than ICD said, “the trend of green logistics has been developing globally for many years, and customers increasingly attach environmentally friendly clauses to business contracts.”

He added that they always expect a holistic solution that can solve both economic and social responsibility issues. On this basis, they found that SolarBK provides tailored solutions to these issues.

In this solar grid solution, SolarBK will provide 1,616 IREX solar panels with a total system peak power of 500.96 kWp. Accordingly, the system will generate about 784,218 kWh of electricity annually. To supply stable power for warehouse service, SolarBK has carefully calculated the optimal settings thanks to its previous experience in implementing large projects.

SolarBK is the leading provider of renewable energy solutions in Vietnam, with a wide range of internationally-certified products exploiting wind and solar energy. It is gearing up efforts to extend the list of solar systems implemented in Vietnam, promoting cleaner and greener development.
