Finnair’s new cargo hub at Helsinki
Airport will utilize solar power produced by 1,200 panels
installed on the building’s roof.
Each of the installed panels can
produce up to 260 W of energy and the annual energy production
level is estimated to be approximately 265 MWh/a.
The solar energy
produced at the cargo facility will represent over 10% of the
building’s annual energy consumption.
“Sustainability is important for Finnair Cargo
customers, as well as their customers,” said Janne Tarvainen
managing director of Finnair Cargo. “Our new cargo hub features
advanced automation technology and has temperature controlled
areas for pharmaceuticals and other perishable products, and the
energy produced by the new solar panels supports the overall
efficiency of the entire cargo terminal.”
Finnair will start operating at its new cargo
terminal in phases from October onwards. Finnair’s full cargo operations at
the new terminal will begin in January 2018.
