Hactl goes green with solar panels on the roof


Hong Kong Air Cargo Terminals (Hactl) has taken the next step in its “Green Terminal” project by installing 1,300sqm of solar panels on the roof of SuperTerminal 1.

The installation will feature 518 panels with the capacity to create 160 kWp, with the renewable energy being fed into the power grid.

The system is being designed, installed and maintained by CLP Engineering, with managing director Alex Keisser commenting: “We are very pleased to work with Hactl on this project and our joint efforts aim at supporting the development of renewable energy in Hong Kong.”

Hactl chief executive, Wilson Kwong adds: “This is a major step forward in Hactl’s “Green Terminal” project, and will make a significant contribution to our efforts to minimise our terminal’s environmental impact. We believe that Hactl has once again set an example for others to follow, both in Hong Kong and elsewhere.”

The signing ceremony for the Solar Energy Service Agreement took place on 9 October at Hactl’s facility.
