The car park is only the first step of Safran’s vision and commitment to go ‘green’ in Malaysia, the second step will be to fully cover the large building’s roof of the site with solar panels, allowing Safran to further replace the use of electricity from fossil fuels to renewable sources to power their internal plant operations.
“The launch of this project underscores our commitment to reduce our environmental footprint by sustainably managing our production facility in Malaysia” said Kenny Chang, Managing Director of Safran Landing Systems. “Based on high-efficiency solar modules, the outcome of the project has exceeded our expectation. Not only does our staff now benefit from cooler cars when they end their shifts but now, we also have a sizeable amount of self-generated clean electricity and increased energy savings. Our team is extremely pleased with the partnership with Cleantech Solar on this successful project. This makes our high-tech plant in Sendayan Techvalley even more sustainable.”
Raju Shukla, Founder and Executive Chairman of Cleantech Solar added that the business of solar, trust can only be built on a company’s ability to deliver over the long-term and that the successful collaboration with Safran was built on the company’s track record and the strong team that it has been able to build over the last few years in Malaysia.
