Finnair’s New Cargo Hub at Helsinki Airport to Use Solar Power

Finnair’s new cargo hub at Helsinki Airport will utilize solar power produced by 1,200 panels installed on the building’s roof.

Each of the installed panels can produce up to 260 W of energy and the annual energy production level is estimated to be approximately 265 MWh/a.

 The solar energy produced at the cargo facility will represent over 10% of the building’s annual energy consumption.

“Sustainability is important for Finnair Cargo customers, as well as their customers,” said Janne Tarvainen (pictured), managing director of Finnair Cargo. “Our new cargo hub features advanced automation technology and has temperature controlled areas for pharmaceuticals and other perishable products, and the energy produced by the new solar panels supports the overall efficiency of the entire cargo terminal.”

Finnair will start operating at its new cargo terminal in phases from October onwards. Finnair’s full cargo operations at the new terminal will begin in January 2018.
