An onsite photo voltaic PV system in now operational on the most superior cement manufacturing facility in Cambodia.
The system includes a 2.eight MW floating solar energy plant deployment on a reservoir owned by Chip Mong Insee Cement Corporation (CMIC), plus 7 MW put in throughout a number of rooftops of the corporate’s facility.
It has been constructed by Singapore-headquartered Cleantech Solar and is anticipated to generate 297 GWh of unpolluted vitality for CMIC, substituting a few of the giant plant’s electrical energy consumption with photo voltaic PV.
Cleantech Solar stated that the deployment of the floating photo voltaic system may also protect the reservoir from wind and the direct scorching noon solar, a transfer which is anticipated to cut back water loss by evaporation, contributing to CMIC’s water conservation efforts.
CMIC chairman Meng Leang stated that “adopting photo voltaic is a crucial step for us to assist meet our vitality necessities while on the identical time scale back our CO2 emissions”.
Cleantech Solar founder Raju Shukla stated: “In addition to environmental and social advantages, comparable to chopping emissions and selling company social duty, the financial advantages of sourcing renewables may also embody price financial savings, long-term value stability and safety of provide.”
