We’ve gone green at the 8,200 mT Kelvin Terminals, Europe’s largest latex tank terminal.
The installation of 126 photo-voltaic solar panels on the roof of the new tank hall, with a predicted output capacity of 51,000 kWh per annum, renders the terminal capable of producing close to 100% of the electrical energy required to power all site operations. This supplements the newly installed air-source heat pumps that cut the site’s dependence on diesel.
Additionally, the existing diesel oil-fuelled boiler, installed to provide heat to maintain the terminals’ latex temperature has been replaced by a series of air-source heat pumps. Powered by our renewable solar energy, these will completely eliminate our dependence of fossil fuels in Terneuzen. Our next target: carbon neutrality.
