Gazeley leases space for photovoltaic installation

12 April 2010
Solergy AG recently inked a deal with Gazeley, a part of Economic Zones WorldEconomic Zones World group headquartered in Dubai, taking on lease a 24,000 square meters of roof space of one of Gazeley’s buildings in Ontigola to build a photovoltaic (PV) installation. According to a Gazeley statement, the electricity produced by the photovoltaic roof installation would be supplied to the city’s main power grid. The PV Installation would be capable of producing 1.285kWp (Kilowatts-peak or the peak output of the device), which is approximately twice the amount of energy needed for the building, the statement added. The PV installation is expected to reduce carbon footprint by 724 tons per year. It is also expected to substantially reduce solar radiation resulting in a healthier environment inside the building. The building is leased to CEVA Logistics, one of the world’s leading supply chain management companies. This is one of the two buildings Gazeley leased out to CEVA in Ontigola in 2009. We at Gazeley take pains to develop sustainable logistics developments and include various standard eco-initiatives into our designs at no extra cost to our customers.
