Ports of Stockholm continues to work on renewable energy
The commitment of Stockholm Ports to renewable energy continues with the construction of a solar cell rooftop facility at Stockholm Norvik Port, one of the largest of its kind in Sweden.
The first component of the new solar cell system at Stockholm Norvik Port became operational on 21 December, the darkest day of the year. On the 3,800 square meter roof of a large warehouse, the plant is installed. The solar cell system will cover 3,500 square meters, almost the entire roof area, when fully completed.
When fully completed in 2021/2022, the facility will also be able to generate up to 570 MWh of solar electricity per annum.
The turn-key contractor that orders, installs and brings the facility online is Idola Solkraft. As early as January 2021, the construction of additional solar panels and equipment will begin.
Stockholm Ports also has five new facilities for the solar cell system. The first and largest of these was launched in 2013 and is on the roof of a building in Stockholm's Frihamnen harbor.
