Cavite, Philippines (20th January 2017) – Koldstor Centre Philippines, Inc., Cleantech Solar Philippines, and SasonbiSolar have jointly commissioned a 503.5 kWp Solar Photovoltaic (“Solar PV”) system at Koldstor warehouse in Cavite. Koldstor will enjoy clean renewable solar electricity generated from a Solar PV system which was financed by Cleantech Solar. SasonbiSolar, a local Solar PV integrator, worked closely with Cleantech Solar to develop the project and was responsible for turn-key installation.
The Solar PV system is expected to generate over 12 GWh of clean solar electricity over its lifetime, making Koldstor warehouse one of the most environmentally friendly cold storage facilities.
Mr. Anthony Dizon, President of Koldstor said “We are happy to embark on the deployment of a solar PV system on top of our main cold storage facility. Clean solar electricity is a way for us and our clients to mitigate the effects of global warming and climate change. Both Cleantech Solar and SasonbiSolar made the installation easy and effortless.”
Mr. Toby Gan, Director of Cleantech Solar Philippines said “Koldstor is our first cold storage client in Philippines. We commend Koldstor for taking direct action in reducing carbon emissions and we look forward to working together during the lifetime of the project.”
The Koldstor Solar PV project is installed with 1,900 Solar PV modules, which convert sunshine into usable electricity. The project was installed under a turnkey Engineering Procurement & Construction (“EPC”) contract with SasonbiSolar. Mr Dante Briones, CEO of SasonbiSolar said “Koldstor Solar PV project used high quality components and best engineering practices during installation. This allowed us to install a high performing Solar PV system in short duration without impact on Koldstor cold storage operations.”
With the project moving to operational stage both Cleantech Solar and SasonbiSolar will closely monitor the performance of the Solar PV system and its effect on the Koldstor facility. It is expected that in addition to energy savings from the Solar PV system, Koldstor will also see a reduction in heat load from the PV modules shading the roof.
Conceived on the tenets of quality, innovation and integrity, Koldstor began commercial operations in the first quarter of 1998. By integrating technologies developed in Europe and the United States of America, Koldstor is the 1st state-of-the-art Cold Storage facility which offers a comprehensive range of services designed to improve storage, inventory management and information development procedures for the food processing and distribution industries.
