May 11, 2020: Total Solar Distributed Generation has completed a solar rooftop for Bollore Logistics Green Hub in Pioneer Turn, Singapore. With a capacity of nearly 1 MW, the system generates an estimated 1.3 GWh of electricity per year. Over the lifetime of the solar rooftop, Bollore Logistics will avoid over 11,500 tonnes of CO2 emissions. With over 2,400 panels, the solar PV system is expected to cover 30 percent of the building’s power needs.

Frédéric Marcerou, managing director, Bollore Logistics Singapore said, “Global warming is altering how businesses run their operations. In Singapore, we have over 200,000 square metres of warehouse space and 1,600 employees. It is vital for us to tap into sustainable energy to support our electricity consumption in the fight against climate change. Green Hub is our first building to be equipped with solar panels. With this milestone, we will continue our journey, in line with Singapore’s solar energy target 2030, towards a greener future.”

Adhering to the Paris Agreement, Bollore Logistics is committed to reducing 43 percent of its greenhouse gas emissions by 2027, through its CSR programme ‘Powering Sustainable Logistics’.
