Hong Kong International Airport has installed a 200kW distributed solar plant on the rooftops of both its terminals.
Developed and built by Hong Kong Kellon Energy Performance Contracting Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Hong Kong Kellon”), the plant has adopted high efficiency monocrystalline PERC modules from LONGi, the world’s leading solar technology company. Available ground and roof space in Hong Kong is at a premium, meaning that higher power generation performance from photovoltaic modules is required. The combination of excellent performance and outdoor attenuation resistance of LONGi’s high efficiency modules has shown clear advantages in many practical applications and their reliability will not only deliver an excellent ROI, but also effectively help energy conservation and emission reduction at the airport.
Hong Kong International Airport is one of the busiest in the world, with passenger traffic ranking among the top five globally according to 2019 data. In 2016, the airport’s three-runway system was officially launched, with “passenger-oriented integration of cutting-edge technology and environmental protection design” becoming its mantra.
The rooftop plant is a renewed cooperation between LONGi and Hong Kong Kellon. Based on recognition of the vision and strength of both parties, the two sides have together brought to the airport the most efficient renewable energy power generation system possible, greatly expanding the application of renewables in Hong Kong and providing an excellent reference point for green energy.
LONGi now has its green footprint in public transportation facilities all over the world, having previously supplied high efficiency modules at locations including the Sydney subway in Australia and Ostend Station in Belgium. As the world’s leading solar technology company, LONGi continues to promote photovoltaic power generation to realize the concept of low-carbon transportation, making environmental protection a goal toward which everyone can participate and contribute.
