Goodyear, Enovos gear up to build Luxembourg’s first large solar carport
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company is collaborating with energy supplier Enovos to build two large solar power stations at its testing facilities in Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg.
The first power station will be a photovoltaic carport consisting of 1 500 solar panels, covering a parking lot of around 4 000 sq m. With an annual production of 657,500 kWh, the carport will be Luxembourg’s first on this scale and will generate energy to supply a number of households.
Completion of the first station is targeted for August 2021 while plans for the second power stations are targeted for 2022.
When completed, both stations will produce annually around 5 GWh of electric power and reduce carbon emissions by around 50,000 tonnes for the next 20 years, while providing clean energy yearly for more than 1,200 households.
