Stockholm Norvik Port has equipped its largest solar cell system yet as part of its investment into renewable energy.
Constructed by Idola Solkraft, the system measures 3600m2 and was inaugurated on 22 September 2021.
According to a statement from Ports of Stockholm, the new system is able to supply electricity with a maximum power output of 605 kW and annual production of 560 MWh – equal to that of 25 average-sized detached houses.
It can be found on top of the port’s largest building and the electricity produced will used to run port activities.
“Ports of Stockholm is continuing to invest in renewable energy in accordance with our long-term environment and climate action plan,” said Fredrik Lindstål, Chair of the Board of Ports of Stockholm. “Stockholm Norvik Port has now been equipped with a roof-installed solar cell system larger than that of any other Swedish port.”
In another effort to become more environmentally sustainable, Stockholm Norvik Port was also part of a collection of European ports applying to the EU for funding to invest in the role of ports as a node and driving force in sustainable transport provision.
Reported in February 2021, Ports of Stockholm said in a statement that it was joining with the ports of Belfast, Lubeck and Gent for the funding.
